Locating packaging materials
We will choose the appropriate packing goods after deciding on the container. We will utilize protective material or inflated air padding to keep your clubs in good condition throughout shipment.
Preparing and wrapping your clubs
If not carefully prepared ahead of time, the tallest clubs often sustain the most substantial wear and tear during shipment. Remove the heads from your drivers and fairway woods before packing and closing the corrugated shipping box.
Then, whether you remove the heads or not, put club head coverings on to reduce the chance of nicks or dents, being sure to note their location beforehand.
To minimize jostling during shipment, wrap your club (or clubs) with bubble wrap. More bubble wrap on each club might assist prevent shipment damage. After that, secure the bubble wrap in place with packing tape before putting the clubs and bags in the shipping box.
Packing and protecting
After you’ve taken care of the clubs, fill any holes in the box to reduce undesired rattling during transportation. There are various options, such adding extra bubble wrap or the less expensive inflated air cushionin or padded paper.
You may also tuck in golf clothing, whether a jacket or not, to eliminate gaps and save up space in your baggage. To minimize moving, a reasonable rule of thumb is to provide two inches of padding surrounding the bag. Remember to add one or two inches of padding to the bottom of the box before sliding the bag inside.
Including a support rod
Consider acquiring an aluminum support rod since the tallest club in the bag will be subjected to the greatest stress while traveling. If you often send your golf clubs and bag, this item will provide you with peace of mind concerning the carriage of your equipment during the delivery procedure. Bundle your clubs together, with or without a support rod, since they are stronger together.
Sealing the box
Finally, use plastic packing tape to tightly shut the corrugated container. Apply at least three strips of pressure-sensitive tape to the top and bottom of the package using the H tape technique. After that, tape all seams and flaps.
