Prepare a large rug for shipping
Before you ship your rug or carpet, clean in deeply. Dust and dirt may damage your rug during transportation, also it will be much easier to unpack it and put it in the room.

Washing large and sensitive rugs is not a simple job, so if you cannot do it by yourself, hire professionals to clean and dry your large rug.
Pack a rug properly
If you are packing your large rug, on your own, then you should know how. If you do not have time or simple you cannot do it, professional packers from removal companies could pack it faster than you would.
- Determine the direction of the rug pile (fibers) before you roll it. Just look at the piles and run with your hand over your carpet. This way it will be smaller and your shipping costs will be too.
- When shipping a large-area rug, before you roll it, put an acid-free and cotton sheet on the rug. This will prevent a rug from sweating. Especially if you are shipping it to a hot city.
- If your rug is not thick, fold it into thirds and then roll the opposite side. If it is thick and it is not possible to fold it this way, just roll it.
- Use a tie around the center of the rolled rug to keep a rug in place. Because the rig is big, tie a rug on corners too, not only in the middle.
- Do not wrap a rug with a plastic moving blanket. Plastic will make a rug wet.
- Measure a rug after you rolled it (the length and width). Weight is also important when shipping and moving items. This way you will know how it will cost you.
- Adding cotton padding on ends will keep a rug secure during the shipping process, but do not use newspapers.
- After shipping is done, unpack and check your rug. If you notice any defect, report it to your shipping company. That is why insurance is important when shipping goods.
