Use the original shipping materials, if you still have them.
If do not have them, they are relatively easy to replicate:
- Wrap media (i.e. hard disk) in an anti-static bag,
tinfoil or simply kitchen alumnium foil to prevent
electrostatic discharge (ESD).
- Use a box that is at least twice the size of the media
so that the media can be suspended in the middle of the box. We recommend a
minimum of two inches of insulation all around for a 2 lb drive.
- Pack securely with foam,
bubble wrap, or creased newspaper so the media will not move from the
middle of the box. Avoid using peanuts as contents will settle to the bottom
of the box. DO NOT SEND YOU HARD DRIVE IN JIFFY BAGS.
- If sending a PC, laptop or notebook,
use great care to ensure proper cushioning and protection. We recommend
at least 6 inches for insulation. The heavier the unit, the more
insulation and cushioning is required.
- Make sure it is clearly labeled as FRAGILE and
don't forget to include the completed and signed media
