Packing a Monitor

Back to main pictures page

Packing a monitor takes me up to an hour depending on how well I assess the size!
I start off with a large sheet of cardboard and a pile of my wife's old Avon Catalogues.

Cut the cardboard to the right size and fold it. Get a fold in the wrong place and the whole thing takes longer to balance together. Put the monitor in to size it up.

Screwed up catalogue in the bottom and loads of it

About 9 catalogues later, the box is ready for the lid.

All packed and ready! Including the all important Fragile stickers and 'This Way Up's

Down to thePost Office where the assistant groans as I walk in the door
