Preparing for the Worst
Don’t assume the shipping company you use will be careful with your fragile items. Numerous things can happen during shipping that even the most safety-conscious company cannot avoid. Protecting your items with a complete packaging system with a durable container and foam packaging gives your items the ultimate protection.
