Just follow these tips and contact a reliable same-day courier company like On Demand Courier in Phoenix, Arizona.

Wrap First

Always wrap the item before you put it in the box. Bubble wrap acts as a second layer of protection. One thing to make sure of, however, is if your object has any jagged edges, don’t tape the bubble wrap on too tight. This could damage the object further.

Don’t Leave Room

The main issue you want to avoid when packing your valuables is to make sure you don’t leave any space for the object to move around. Once you’ve wrapped it in bubble wrap, fill the bottom of the box with a liberal amount of packing peanuts. Once it’s inside, hold it up straight and fill every side with packing peanuts ensuring it doesn’t lean to one side. Once again, it may seem like you’re overdoing it with the materials, but they can [and should] be reused.

Mark It As Fragile

If you’re really concerned about your package being unsafe in transit you should be sure to mark it as fragile. If you just get a box that says “fragile” on it, people are less likely to pay any attention to it. However, if you get some red tape, it will be more noticeable. Once everything is inside, make sure you put a good amount of tape around the openings.
