How to Ship My Video Card?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone,

I have recently sold my graphics card, and since this is my first time shipping a video card I would like to know some tips on how to make sure it gets to its destination safe. Do i need to use an anti static bag, foam, bubble wrap etc? Also I would like to note that I will be shipping it in its original box.

Thanks

First, wrap in an anti static bag.
Next, surround it with bubble wrap.
Place it in the smallest possible box you can, you don't want it to move at all.
Then place it in a slightly larger box, surround the smaller one with more bubble wrap, and ship it off!

yup.

knowing an item is double-boxed does wonders for the nerves if you're the buyer lol

Well if you have the retail box for the video card use everything it came with and wrap it in bubble wrap and stick that in another box. That's how i mailed me video card and it survived FedEx.
