>> Hi Rick,
>>
>> Over the past few weeks I have shipped a lot of stuff including several 
>> receivers (NC-183).
>>
>> I used the USPS Priority mail on almost everything.  With priority mail, 
>> there is less handling of the item and it does not stay in transit as 
>> long.
>>
>> At present, I am bating 1000, no damages and fast delivery.
>>
>> I have also had excellent results using Greyhound express.  If you are 
>> shipping to a customer in a large city served by the Greyhound bus 
>> system, many times it never leaves the bus from the time you ship until 
>> it arrives.
>>
>> If I sent you a large heavy item, I could put in on the bus in 
>> Tallahassee and it would stay in its place until it arrived in Dallas.
>>
>> The cost is not that much when you consider the advantages.
>>
>> Another thing I will share with you.  Go to a carpet store that does 
>> installations and ask for some scrap padding.
>>
>> Take the unit and roll it up six or eight times and shove it into a large 
>> box.  This will give you about 8 to 10 inches of foam padding arouind the 
>> unit and.....it's free
>
>
> If it shipped that way with FedWrex or UPS and broken they will deny the 
> claim.
>
> It must be double boxed and hard foam used.
>
> I suggest strongly that everyone carefully read the rules before getting 
> burnt.

>> I am thinking seriously about selling my Valiant and NC-183 and wonder if 
>> I
>> should take a chance on shipping either or both?  The Valiant is very 
>> heavy
>> as you all know and the NC-183 is no light weight.  If I don't agree to 
>> ship
>> it will certainly limit the possibility of selling them.  What do ya'll 
>> have
>> to say?  I received both via FedEx or UPS, I don't remember now, and both
>> were undamaged.
>>
>> Thanks for any input..
