Shipping cymbals, drums etc

Post  Belltone on Sun Aug 23, 2009 6:53 pm

Selling gear always leaves me nervous as to what state it will end up in at the other end. What's your advice as to how best to package them up?


Also which couriers are best? Do you use track and trace? ever had something damaged or stolen?

I've been using Pack and Send...they're in Christchurch and Auckland...take a few days but cheaper than couriers and have all the packaging gear to guarantee safe arrival of what you are selling.

Lots of packing bubble wrap, foam peanuts and strong boxes. For offshore shipping I double box even though it's more expensive. For cymbals I put insulation they use on pipes around the edge to prevent edge damage. Never had any damage or loss with good ol NZ post.
