PACKING YOUR MACHINE FOR

SHIPPING

HELLO, I AM GOING TO TELL YOU HOW TO PACK YOUR SEWING MACHINE FOR
SHIPPING 
TO THE NEW OWNER OR JUST TO MAKE THE MOVING TRIP SAFE!
BE SURE TO UNPACK DO NOT LEAVE MACHINE PACKED FOR A LONG
PERIOD OF TIME IT NEEDS AIR TOO.

THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS OF PACKING YOUR MACHINE, I AM GOING TO
SHOW YOU 
HOW I PACK AND HAVE HAD GREAT LUCK WITH IT.  DEPENDING
ON THE MACHINE AND 
THE SIZE OF THE CASE WILL MATTER ON HOW
MUCH PACKING YOU USE, I USE BUBBLE 
WRAP AND PEANUTS BUT IF
YOU DON'T HAVE THAT THEN USE WHAT YOU HAVE.

THE MAIN POINT HERE IS THAT YOU DON'T WANT THE MACHINE TO
BE ABLE TO 
MOVE AROUND DURING SHIPPING, THAT IS WHAT
DAMAGES THE MACHINE AND CASE.

THE FIRST THING YOU CAN DO IS TAKE OFF THE SPOOL PIN COVER
TO BE SURE IT 
DOESN'T GET DAMAGED OR DAMAGE THE CASE.
I PACK MOST WITH IT ON AND IF YOU 
WANT TO LEAVE IT ON JUST
MAKE SURE TO PUT ENOUGH PACKING ON TOP OF 
MACHINE SO
IT FITS SNUG WHEN YOU CLOSE THE LID.

JUST REMEMBER IF THE MACHINE IS IN A CARRING CASE, YOU
WANT TO HAVE 
 ENOUGH PACKING IN AND AROUND THE
MACHINE SO IT DOES NOT MOVE.

THIS IS MINOR DAMAGE, I DON'T HAVE A CASE AT THIS TIME WITH SOME
MAJOR DAMAGE BUT THIS LITTLE AMOUNT OF DAMAGE TO THE LID MAY
HAVE  BENT OR BROKEN THE SPOOL PIN ON THE MACHINE.
I REPAIR THESE OLD MACHINES SO I BUY AND SELL A LOT OF THEM AND
I HAVE SEEN SOME REALLY POOR PACKING AND THERE IS NOTING
WORSE THAN TO SPEND $100+ ON A MACHINE THAT YOU PURCHASED
AND GETTING IT AND BECAUSE OF POOR PACKING THE MACHINE
ARRIVES WITH DAMAGE AND THE SELLER SAYS "YOU SHOULD HAVE
PUT INSURANCE ON IT".


I WANT TO SAY TO EVERYBODY; "INSURANCE DOESN'T COVER DAMAGE
IT IS CAUSED BY POOR PACKING, THAT IS THE SELLER OR PACKING 
COMPANY'S RESPONCEABILTY.  INSURANCE IS PAYED IF THE SHIPPING
COMPANY IS RESPONCEABLITY FOR THE DAMAGE, OF COURSE THIS
MAY VERY DEPENDING ON WHO THE INSURER IS.  WHAT I AM POINTING
OUT IS, IF YOU PACK IT WELL IT WILL ARRIVE IN THE SAME CONDITION
AS PURCHASED.  TAKE YOUR MACHINE AND WRAP IT IN BUBBLE WRAP
OR WHAT EVER YOU HAVE.

 

DEPENDING ON THE CASE YOU MAY NEED TO TRIM WRAP SO MACHINE FITS INTO
CASE PROPER.  THIS IS THE SMALL BUBBLES IF YOU ARE PACKING WITHOUT
CASE CAN USE THE BIGGER BUBBLES.

 

        

I TAKE PLASTIC OR PLASTIC BAG AND WRAP AROUND ATTACHMENT
BOX AND 
THEN RUN TAPE AROUND TO HELP SUPPORT THE BOX.

 

IF YOU HAVE OTHER ATTACHMENTS WRAP THEM AND YOU MAY BE ABLE TO FIT
IN CASE UNDER THE SMALL TRAY 
BEFORE PUTTING MACHINE IN.  
I ALSO PUT THE BOOK IN A PLATIC BAGGIE AND IF NEEDED PUT BETWEEN
CARDBOARD AND CAN BE PUT ALONG THE SIDE OF CASE.
IF THE ATTACHMENTS WON'T FIT IN CASE WRAP AND PUT IN SHIPPING BOX. 

 

THE FOOT CONTROL CAN GO AS SEEN OR WRAP WITH BUBBLE WRAP AND LAY
ALONG THE BACK 
SIDE OF MACHINE IN CASE.  IF YOU HAVE A FULL TRAY I
WRAP FOOT CONTROL AND IF IT WILL FIT IN 
TRAY WILL PUT IT THERE OR LAY
ALONG 
SIDE OF MACHINE BELOW TRAY.

NOW THAT EVERYTHING IS PACKED SAFE IN THE CASE I TAKE MORE BUBBLE
WRAP AND 
 PACK SIDES AROUND MACHINE AND ON TOP SO THAT WHEN I
SHUT THE LID IT IS SNUG, NOW NOTHING IS GOING TO MOVE WHILE BE SHIPPED.

 

TAKE SOME BUBBLE WRAP AND WRAP OUTSIDE OF CASE AND PUT A LITTLE
UNDER HANDLE TO PROTECT FROM LEAVING A MARK ON CASE. 

AFTER YOU GET IT TAPED TAKE THE TAPE AND RUN  A LINE ALL THE WAY
AROUND IT TO HELP SUPPORT LID AND CASE, I USUALLY RUN A LINE ON BOTH
SIDE OF THE HANDLE.

 

         

PEANUTS OR PACKING OF YOUR CHOICE ON THE BOTTOM I LAY MACHINE IN ON
IT'S SIDE 
SET MACHINE IN BOX AND NOW PACK AROUND SIDES

            

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT PEANUTS IS IT GIVES THE MACHINE AN AIR RIDE BUT
BALLED UP NEWS PAPER, PLASTIC BAGS 
WILL DO SIMILAR AS LONG AS
YOU USE ENOUGH.  
I HAVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM MY CUSTOMERS ON
MY PACKING AND 
HAVE HAD ALL ITEMS MAKE IT TO THEIR BUYERS AS
PURCHASED.  
I ALWAYS SAY PACK IT LIKE YOUR PACKING FOR YOURSELF!

 

I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU AS A PACKER AND IF YOU ARE A BUYER OF MINE 
THAT IT GIVES YOU A PIECE OF MIND ON HOW YOUR PURCHASE WILL
BE PACKED.


THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK,
DUANE
