Sometimes, you need to store your furniture when you do not have the original packaging supplies. On one side you need to pack them secure, and on the other side, you want to pack them cheap. Using used cardboard boxes might be the best choice as you can find them free. Also, as cardboard is rigid, it is able to keep the furniture intact.So, here is the steps how you pack for storing furniture without original packaging supplies
Unfold the cardboard box and put it on the floor as you see in the picture, and put the furniture on the edge of the cardboard. At this point, make sure that there is no staple on the cardboard to scratch the furniture. Now, shrink wrap the furniture that you can later tape the cardboard to shrink wrap not to the furniture.
You can cover the item with cardboard and tape it to furniture that is already wrapped. On the corners, you might need to cut the cardboard to cover the furniture easier.
After you cover the furniture with cardboard and tape the cardboard to wrapped furniture, you might need to shrink wrap the whole thing again.
