What packaging materials do you need to pack a tent or camping gear?
If you want to ship your camping equipment abroad, or even regionally or nationally, you should ensure that your items are properly packed. To achieve this, you need the following packing materials:
- Cardboard boxes – are available at stationery stores or hardware stores, but you can also use used boxes from the supermarket. Just make sure that they are in good condition. The box should be sturdy and big enough to fit your items and cushioning materials.
- Bubble wrap or wrapping paper – To protect the items from scratches, dents, dings.
- Plastic or Ziploc bag – For packing smaller items or protecting items from dirt.
- Cushioning material – Padding out of the box. You can use Styrofoam chips, crumpled paper, polystyrene sheets or more bubble wrap.
- Ropes or rubber bands – to secure small parts.
- Adhesive tape and scissors – To close the package and secure stuff. You can also use rubber bands to hold together parts of your camping equipment.
How to pack a tent or camping gear for shipping?
To best protect your tent or camping gear, just follow these guidelines:
- Prepare a tent or camping equipment. Tents are usually kept in a bag, which makes their shipping a lot easier, as the items are already well stowed. If you do not have the bag for your tent, carefully roll up the flysheet and the main tent in a compact structure and tie them up with ropes. For other camping equipment, we recommend to disassemble them. So you can pack them easier. Collect the tent poles together and secure them with rubber bands.
- Pack smaller parts. For pegs, ropes and other small parts, use labelled plastic bags, which you can even attach directly to the appropriate equipment. So you know exactly where they belong when putting up your tent or other hiking gear.
- Wrap your tent or equipment in bubble wrap or leave it in a bag. Use plenty of bubble wrap to protect each item.
- Place the items in the cardboard box. Cover the bottom of the box with cushioning material, place the items in the box and fill the empty space with an additional cushioning material. This way you will prevent the items in the package from moving back and forth.
- Close the box and label if needed. Gently shake the cardboard box to make sure nothing moves in the package. Seal the package along the flaps with several layers of duct tape. When using old box, remove all the labels so you can add new ones.
