We acknowledge that a sewing machine is not only an item for tailoring clothes as it could be your heirloom as well. Thus, you certainly want to keep it safe and sound during transportation. For that reason, you need to prepare packaging materials before you send a sewing machine abroad:
Proper packaging is essential to protect your shipment from any damages even if you choose the best courier service provider. Proceed with the next several steps to pack your sewing machine.
Step 1. Depending on the type and construction of your sewing machine, you need to unfasten it from a sewing table first.
Step 2. Remove some detachable parts from a sewing machine. Take away the bobbin winder, the presser foot, the spool pin on top, and cover each of them with bubble wrap or put in a specific plastic bag for such items provided initially.
Step 3. Wrap the entire sewing machine with plenty of bubble wrap and secure it with adhesive tape. You can add foam rubber as additional protection.
Step 4. Prepare all the attachments. Wrap foot control, power supply, and other attachments in bubble wrap.
Step 5. Put your sewing machine in the original case or bag provided initially. Cover it with bubble wrap.
Step 6. Prepare the boxes. If you have the original sewing machine case, you need to take only one box. Otherwise, take two cardboard boxes (a smaller and a bigger one) for enhancing protection during transportation. Place plenty of packing peanuts or Styrofoam on the bottom of each box. You can place extra pieces of Styrofoam at each wall of the box, but make sure there is enough space left for a sewing machine itself.
Step 7. Nest a sewing machine inside the original case. If you do not have one, place your sewing machine into a smaller box and seal it, then nest a smaller box in a bigger one.
Step 8. Seal the box. Use adhesive tape for securing each side and edge of the box. Repeat this procedure for each box in case you have two of them.
