The safest way is using air, soft cloth, or brushes. You do not have to spend a lot of time on cleaning, but your customers will appreciate the extra care and leave you glowing reviews. Plus a clean collectible is always more valuable to the end consumer.
Which packing tools to use?
Some products will absolutely destroy a collectible. Items that are painted and interact with plastic can met and fuse together. This would absolutely destroy your item! Paper is often the simplest way to protect your items for shipping. It is best practice to combine protective measures. Wrap your item in paper and wrap that in bubble wrap. That way you get the best of both worlds!
Keep your collectibles upright
Spread out the weight of the items, avoid stacking them on top of each other. It may save you on shipping, but it can be costly if anything happens to your products. Always pick a box that fits your products and packing materials with only a little bit of extra space to allow slight movement. This extra space will product the items from being crushed.
