    Along with what everyone else said, I reccomend storing them in vehicle mode, usually takes up less space in my experience.

    I just moved so I can tell you on how to do it.

    1) find some sturdy boxes from either usps or your local recycling center
    2) get some bubble wrap and packaging tape
    3) if they are loose, pack them away in vehicular mode--less space
    4) wrap the figures individually in bubble wrap then seal each one with the packaging tape
    5) if they are in their boxes, pack them in the boxes and figure out the best way to ship them in the shipping box
    6) if you are not shipping them yourself in your car/Uhaul truck/trailer, do write Fragile in huge letters but do not say exactly what is in it but you can write "toys" or "pictures".

    Hopefully this was helpful for you.
