Boxing the clothes properly
The nice thing about sending clothes is that they’re relatively simple to pack and less likely than other goods to be damaged in transit. With that said, selecting the right box and taking measures to protect the clothing are essential.
Padded envelopes should suffice for small, lightweight clothing items like socks, shirts and pants. In the case of heavier clothes or bundles of clothes, go with a sturdy, corrugated cardboard box, preferably a new one. Consider lining the box with plastic or extra cardboard to seal it off to moisture. Always use strong packaging tape to secure the flaps of the box.
