Hi Fred and Group...You
mention Fed X as the preferred
shipper. BEWARE, Fed X has a
policy that anything that is
not NEW or OLD stuff that we
all love has a $100 limit on
Insurance Payback. I took a
DX100 to have shipped when the
packing company showed me the
FED X rules on antiques and
old stuff. She said even if
you pay for $1000 insurance
that they will only pay $100
of it. Needless to say we used
UPS and had no problems  DX100
arrived safely...

Shipping etc.

Good day list. I'm glad to
find out there are new
regulations on parcel services
from USPS. I've been inactive
for awhile. I agree Fed-Ex is
probably the preferred shipper
on larger items within the
U.S. I can not stress,
however, the importance of
proper packaging. Using all of
the services available
domestic and foreign, I have
shipped over 2000 packages
worldwide in the past 7 years
with no damages. I think those
of us with good shipping
results should get together,
compare notes and make them
available to those who have
not been so lucky! Some of my
items have been expensive
accoustic  musical instruments
and transmitting tubes. I do
not trust commercial
packagers, the only good thing
about them is that they bear
the insurance claims!  Fred
