  • Pack the shipping box with packing material to protect the inner box during shipping.
  • Seal the shipping box with gummed, reinforced paper mailing tape or pressure-sensitive shipping tape. Write the tracking number on the box.
  • Disguise mailing information that it never mentions the value of items inside.
