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.

I hear ya!!!...+1...after actually see'in first hand what a fellar did here at the house...He pulled in said this will save me some extra miles..pulled up the Back door of his truck....then actually stepped on the corners of the boxes at the back....to get to the front of his Load...I was sayin Careful!!!..

I've spent well over two hours at times...building custom Cardboard boxes to be Crush proof...I learned from Dennis Everett....roll up cardboard and a dab of hot glue makes Tremendous Piers for center support throughout your Box...As it is...I get a lil restless anyways shipping...At the very Least...Ya gotta double box....

The claim came thru. USPS paid me and I sent a refund The Item is on its way back to me. If you guy's have this problem, take good pic's and just say what happened. I just could have been lucky
