How to pack and ship a rowing machine overseas

  1. Disassemble the machine as much as possible.
  2. Remove the handle and chain from the main body.
  3. Pack screws, nuts and bolts separately in a Ziploc bag.
  4. Wrap the main body with a moving blanket and pack in a cardboard box.
  5. Pack the rest of the parts in the box or use a separate box if necessary.
  6. Fill the voids of the box with packing materials to protect the machine.
  7. Close and seal the box with adhesive tape.

How to transport a rowing shell: Van Delivery Service

When transporting rowing sculls or rowing boats with our Van Delivery Service, no packaging is needed. However, we would still recommend protecting the rowing scull for transport by covering it with moving blankets or bubble wrap. When transporting multiple rowing boats or shells at the same time, you should separate and wrap each one individually, to prevent damage.
