If you sell or purchase a machine and it is being posted sender should;
- Wind the needle down into the bobbin area .
- Drop the presser foot down onto the sewing area (as you would when you are sewing)
- Wrap the machine and accessories seperately in bubble wrap and pack the whole lot securely into a polystyrene fruit box. Use extra polystyrene ( I usually break up another box ) to slip into the spaces /sides so that there is no movement. Tape the box securely wrap in brown paper and label which way is up.
- Always ask for registered post and insurance
