Shipping, keeping leather furniture

GM! We are bringing in a 20' container and only adding a few pieces of furniture. I'm know you have to be very careful with leather and we have a kind of expensive leather couch we want to bring.

Should I coat the entire couch with leather protector? Should I also shrink wrap it and a fabric chair for transport in the container, or would it just trap moisture?

Cloth furniture pads would be the best way to go.  The leather needs to breath so you are correct about plastic tapping moisture.  Keeping leather supple is important no matter what climate you are in, however a moist environment is helpful as the leather will not dry out.  Keeping it treated is just a good over all pracrice as leather is expensive. Hope this info helps.

Thanks! We need pads for glass table tops anyway.
