Everytime I buy an expensive bass in the USA, either online or thru my brother who lives there, I face the same dilemma. How can I have it shipped to Mexico in the safest way possible? I have friends also, and some of them offer to bring them on the plane, in the cabin, so does my brother, but I can't keep asking em all the time to struggle with the flight attendants to let them do this. I've thought of buying a SKB Roller ATA case, and just tell them to check them as luggage but dont wanna risk my precious basses to get lost or damaged by insensitive people. Maybe UPS, FedEx or DHL, but it's uber expensive because of the damned import taxes in my country! Any recommendations/experiences with either of these solutions? Thanks a lot guys!
