When you’re shipping electronics like iPads, it’s important that you learn how to pack and ship devices properly so they are safe and sound during transport to their destination. iPads are an extremely popular electronic that gets shipped frequently around the United States and overseas. We’ll teach you the best way to ship iPads safely.

When shipping iPads in bulk quantities, we recommend a wooden shipping crate. This is the best way to ship iPads safely as the wood crates provides a higher level of protection than other options. In addition to added protection, there are also other benefits to shipping with a wood crate.

How to Pack iPads for Shipping

Safety is likely your top priority when shipping large amounts of expensive items like iPads. To make sure your iPads arrive to your recipient safely, observe the following steps:

  • Wrap each iPad in bubble wrap. Be sure there are no exposed areas of the iPad. You can use traditional bubble wrap and packaging tape to secure your iPads. Small bubble wrap (3/16”) is a safe and economic option. You can also secure the iPads in individual sealable bubble bags or pouches for quicker packing and unpacking.
  • Pack the iPads in boxes. You don’t want your package recipient to be blindly searching for the products throughout the packaging materials. Placing the items into boxes will make it easier to find and unpack your products. This is especially important if you’re shipping different varieties of iPads that go to different departments. For example, if you send broken iPads to a repair facility, they may request that they be separated by model. You can separate these into boxes and label each box.
  • Fill empty space with packing material to avoid movement.  Even though your iPads will be individually protected, we also recommend using a product like packing peanuts. Using packing peanuts will prevent unwanted movement of the iPads which can potentially cause damage to the screens.
  • If including chargers and cords, package them separately. Doing this will make sure that you don’t lose any of these items among the packing material. You also keep the iPad screens protected by not including these items with the iPads themselves. Bubble bags are a good option to contain these.

Now that you know how to pack your iPads, all you need is a shipping crate and a carrier. This is where You Crate and R+L Carriers can help you.
