It's funny, the number of folks who seem to be afraid to ask the agents about packaging...
My agents say that shipping in the 'shelf' box almost certainly invites disaster.
Smaller boxes are placed in bigger boxes, heading to different places.
If you put a box of christmas ornaments under a box of fruit cakes, there's going to be damage.
If you can't package safely, you shouldn't be selling or shipping.
I know that forklifts can destroy just about anything, but if you get suggestions from the guys delivering packages,they will help you have a fighting chance.
As far as the buyer being responsible for insurance claims, that's a fallacy.....The person paying for insurance must pursue that.
You can ask the buyer to wait a reasonable time before you pay for his loss, to see if insurance pays, (so it doesn't hurt so much), but it's up to you to see that he gets what he asked for.
