When you're building your Storage Scholars box, make sure to use at least 3 strips of tape minimum on the bottom. The more, the better in this scenario.
Pack your box!
-To pack your belongings in your box securely the heaviest items should go at the bottom of the box and the lightest at the top.
-You should avoid under-packing the box to prevent it from collapsing during shipping.
-Think about the contents of the box. Are you shipping all your textbooks and clothes home? Break up the heavy items into multiple boxes to prevent additional overweight shipping charges.
-It's best not to leave empty spaces for your belongings to move around in, stuff the gaps with newspaper, clothing, blankets, etc. Wrap any fragile items with plastic wrap to prevent damage.
