How to pack a laptop?

1. Turn off the laptop, place a layer of bubble wrap between the keyboard and the screen, and then wrap the entire device in more bubble wrap.

2. If possible, put your laptop in its original box. If not, choose a small sturdy box, pack the device in it, and fix it as much as you can. Add cushioning material inside the box and seal it.

3. Wrap the small box in several layers of bubble wrap to protect it from any possible falls and hits.

4. Place the small box wrapped in bubble wrap in a larger box and fill the extra space with more cushioning material for the utmost protection in transit.

5. Pack headphones, a charger, and other additional equipment separately in a small box or bag and then place it inside the large box together with the packed laptop.

6. Seal the large box properly and add appropriate shipping labels.
