1)     Boxes. You will need lots of boxes, for obvious reasons. You need to store your items in boxes, before placing them in the cargo hold.

Purchase heavy duty boxes, large, medium and small boxes.  Heavier items or items with odd shapes must be placed in larger boxes, after they have been carefully wrapped. Double-walled boxes, that have thicker walls, are ideal to store fragile items.  Check first if you have the original boxes for electronic devices or dedicated equipment.  You will save some money if these boxes are in good condition for reuse.
