    Hi I'm moving to Asia later this year for work and I plan to move my collection with me. As driving is not an option, and I'll have to leave my beautiful minty box toys in the hands of the airline. I just want to know if anyone can give me any tips on how I should pack my toys?

    Like pack the boxes tight to avoid movement?
    Focus on lining the boxes?
    Any kind of boxes I should use?
    Cheaper to add it on as luggage or cheaper to use a mailing service?

    Maybe some dealers can give me advice since I guess they would know the most since they would have to move toys for various conventions to sell toys.

    Rubbermaid containers might be a good idea, then use newspaper or (if you can get them) packing peanuts in between the figures.

    Ebay:
    Is this a permanent move? If not, I would honestly just look into getting a nice, climate controlled storage unit that has an online bill-pay option.

    If it is permanent, then if it is a large enough collection, perhaps individually bubble wrapped boxes placed within large rubbermaid tubs then stacked on pallets and wrapped in plastic again to be moved by a freight company.
