How to ship a monitor?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a nice 23 in acer monitor. I want to have my dad ship it to me from home. Only problem is were not sure how to ship it so it won't break.
I comes in a slim box with some foam padding and a plastic wrap but its a very thin box. Do I just ship it this way or put it in a bigger box? Thanks

If you have access to a bigger box, i would put it in the small box, then in the bigger shipping box with padding/air pads around the box just for extra security. Not sure how much shipping would be though.

Do you have the box it came in from the store? Usually that's the best.
