>>> 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.
