At Stella Lighting, we understand the joy of sharing one’s passion for light with others. When giving an exquisite Stella lamp as a present or transporting precious possessions safely across an ocean or continent, proper packing procedures must safely ensure their intended destination arrival. But How to pack a Stella lamp? Here’s an in-depth guide for packing up and shipping a Stella lamp safely!

Gather the Essentials

To begin assembling, collect all necessary materials. 

  • Original Packaging: If possible, using its protective box offers maximum protection of components found within.
  • Packing Materials: When searching for replacement packaging for an object such as a lamp, opt for a sturdy cardboard box slightly larger than its contents and fill out any empty spaces using packing peanuts, bubble wrap, or similar cushioning materials to reduce movement and absorb potential impact.

Disassemble Your Lamp (if Applicable)

Although many Stella lamps, including our Stella Go series, are designed for portability without necessitating disassembly, others may include detachable parts that require disassembling before assembly can begin. Follow any disassembly instructions included with your user manual carefully for proper procedures;

  • Remove Shade: Carefully detach the shade from its lamp base according to the manufacturer’s specifications, wrapping each one individually with bubble wrap or packing paper to protect it from scratches.
  • Unscrew Bulbs: To avoid scratches on bulbs when unplugging them, individually wrap each in bubble wrap or packing paper to protect it.
  • Disassemble the Base (if Necessary): Certain lamps feature removable poles or bases to take care of; follow instructions carefully to disassemble and pack individually with padding.

Secure Pack the Components

Once disassembled (if applicable), pack all components according to these guidelines:

  • Place the lamp base in the center of the box:  The lamp base must always remain at the center, with empty spaces filled up using packing peanuts or bubble wrap to protect from movement or impact and absorb shocks as necessary
  • Pack the shade and bulb separately: Wrap each one individually in bubble wrap or packing paper before carefully placing them into their boxes, taking care not to have direct contact between them and the lamp base.
  • Fill any remaining space with packing material: Fill every available inch to reduce internal movement during transport and keep internal spaces from shifting around inside your box.
  • Seal and Label the Box: Use packing tape to secure all sides tightly closed of the box, marking multiple surfaces of its exterior with “Fragile” and “This Side Up” markings to communicate clearly to carriers.

Final Thoughts

How to pack a Stella lamp? – For any inquiries on the disassembling or packing steps of the Stella lamp you own, refer to its user manual for specifics from Stella Lighting. Also, consider insuring valuable or fragile lamps during shipping for added peace of mind. For floor lamps, utilize a larger box or pad the base and pole with padding, to provide sufficient support within.

By following these easy steps, you can ensure your Stella lamp arrives at its destination in perfect condition – ready to illuminate its new home with its distinct brilliance!
