PACKING SEATS SAFELY & SECURELY
We encourage you to send us seats or backs from 'Cesca and other types of chairs for
re-seating with cane webbing, but we'd like to emphasise how important it is to pack your
Bubble wrap and brown paper are not enough! Seats need to be
protected by strong cardboard - without it, the joints at the corners can work loose in
leaving us with an extra job - re-gluing the joints - before we can begin work on the caning.
Parcels do occasionally receive knocks during their journey from your house to our
workshop, after all!
If you're packing a single seat you can get away with the following:
- wrap the seat itself in bubble wrap, and secure with sticky tape;
- split a cardboard carton and use the cardboard to wrap the bubble-wrapped seat;
- make sure the cardboard is well secured with good strong parcel tape;
- ensure you put your own name, address, phone number and email address
the parcel, as well as on the outside.

BUT DON'T OVER-PACK EITHER!
The seats in the photo on the right are an example of over-packing. The customer has
time to ensure that absolutely no damage can come to their seats, but in the process they
given us at least half an hour's extra work, removing the packing. They have cut out the
webbing in the centre of the seats, and wrapped the seat frames all the way round with
wrap, which was fixed on very securely with very strong tape. In order to remove all this we
more or less destroyed the bubble wrap, so it couldn't be re-used for sending the parcel
It would have been just as safe, and a lot quicker at both ends, if the seats had been
individually wrapped in bubble wrap, as in the example above, and then placed inside the
nice strong box the customer provided.
