The tape should never come in contact with the surface of the equipment as it may damage the finish.
Choose an appropriate size box for the items to be shipped. Too small may not allow room for ample padding. Too large may allow for items to bounce around. If you are reusing a box, remove any old labels to prevent shipping mix-ups.
Pad the box with a material such as bubble wrap, packing peanuts, or crumbled or shredded paper while keeping the equipment in the center of the box. The equipment should not come in contact with the box. Make sure enough packing material has been used allowing for no give at the top.
