How To Pack Fragile Items For Shipping

Just like with any other product your customers order, they expect fragile packages to arrive on time and intact. But the best way to ship fragile items requires special attention to put them in the greatest position possible for a successful delivery. And it’s unlikely the recipient will be more forgiving if an easily damaged piece doesn’t arrive as planned.
