Shipping

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by J. from Samsara, Dec 2, 2002.


  1. I hope this is the right forum for this. I am shipping a bass to CA, it is going in the case. What is the best packing to ship it in? I was going to cover the case in sheet cardboard taped together and wrap it in shrink wrap. It is going UPS Ground. This is my first time shipping a bass, please help-

    Hi!

    My advice is to contact a local music store and see if they have a shipping box from a new bass. It will fit better and be a safer ship. I'd recommend fedex ground instead of ups. If the buyer wants to pay a little extra, fedex air is even better
