Prepare & Ship your Trade-ins and Repairs

Preparing your Package

Box or Envelope?
Type Pros and Cons Application
Box
  • Provides excellent protection.
  • Costs more to ship due to its weight.
  • Flexible in sizes.

Gaming consoles, Disc format games (e.g, PlayStation, Sega CD, Dreamcast), Complete condition of cartridge format games (e.g. N64, Jaguar, SNES, NES...)

Envelope
  • Generally costs less than box.
  • Great for where protection is less important (e.g. durable or higher crush resistance items)

Cartridge format games (e.g. N64 games), Cables, Controllers, Books, Memory Cards

Cushioning

Place the cushioning all around your item or items. You can use newspaper, “foam peanuts,” or shredded paper.

Layering (Partitioning)
  • Place heavier items on the bottom.
  • Use cardboard or corrugated board on top of items to create layers if you have to stack items.
Sealing

Tape the opening of your box and reinforce all seams. Do not use cord, string, twine, masking, or cellophane tape. Place a strip of clear packaging tape over your label to prevent the address from smearing.

Mailing Heavy Items

If you are mailing a very heavy or very dense item, use a sturdy box with the contents cushioned securely with a strong material for bracing to prevent shifting, and tape all the edges with reinforced tape.
