How should I go about shiping a rocking chair? I don’t know the distance yet of the shipment but anything over 150 miles will need to go freight.

I would find a box and wrap any part that is in contact with the out side of the box with a number of layers of bubble wrap. Perhaps a box a washer or dryer is shipped in.

Scott
What is the general range of packaging offered by Plycon? I am worried about having a chair that takes 30+ hours to complete being ruined in shipping.

Have your say...
