You want to avoid a situation that happened to a young man who bought a beautiful glass wishing well figurine for his away-at-college girlfriend. Despite the beautiful (and quite romantic) gesture, and the fact that he thought he packed the glass well, the figurine arrived at his girlfriend’s dorm room shattered into little shards.
No amount of insurance will cover you for a poor packing job should the shipping company find it sub-par.
The Three Basic Rules For Packing Glass Are:
- Use padding that will withstand breaking before it is boxed.
- Liberally tape so that the padding material does not slip off of the glass. Also, use tape to bind items together so they don’t shift.
- Snugly pack the box leaving 3-inches of shock absorbing material around the inner package, especially at the corners.
Instead of going through all of this work and facing the possibility of still not getting it right, come to your local Postal Connections and let the pros pack that precious glass for you.
