  • Use these tips at your own risk.
  • Insure adequately.
  • Enclose your full contact information in the box: Name, Address, Email Address, Cell Phone.
  • Print your telephone number and ours on the shipping label.
  • Cover the shipping address label with clear tape to prevent tearing.

Use two (2) strong boxes, 1 inner box, 1 outer box.

  • The outer box should be at least 1-2" larger (in width, length and height) than the inner box.
  • The inner box size should be at least 1-2" larger than the lamp or shade.
  • Secure any glass panels with masking tape not clear tape.
  • Use a minimum of 3-4" of packing material in the inner box bottom.
  • No part of the lamp or shade should come within 1-2" of the inner box wall.
  • Suspend the lamp or shade inside the inner box with packing materials.
  • Suspend the inner box at least 1" inside the outer box using packing materials.
  • No part of the inner box should come within 1" of the outer box wall.
  • Fill the shade inner dome cavity with packing materials.
  • The inside of the shade should be filled and supported by packing materials.
  • So the weight of the shade is not solely on the bottom edge.
  • Boxes should be completely filled and lightly packed with packing materials.
  • It should be necessary to apply light pressure to close the top lids to prevent shifting.
  • Seal all 6 seams of both boxes with clear tape.
