    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    What I find funny is this will just end up costing all of these people more money.

    The more delicate you want your package handled the more it's gonna cost u.

    Pack it right and it won't matter at all. Most stuff is damaged because it's packed like crap.

    It is actually more of a *toss* than an throw. I can show you throw....if you like.

    If you pack the contents to survive a 30 foot fall....they'll be fine. Toss 2 glasses in a box...wrapped in a single sheet of paper...well here's your box of shards, sir. Have a nice day!

    I've had boxes where the corner has split open because something was stacked on it. Looking in box you can see where they stacked 3 or 4 laptops, no padding of any kind anywhere in the box. WTH? Do they think pkgs are transported on fairy dust?

    It must have been packed properly, they should not have accepted it if it wasnt.

    I've had friends and family ask,"If I pay for next day air, it gets handled separately so it won't get damaged, right?"

    It was my grandmother's china. It's irreplaceable. I wrapped each piece individually in a piece of newspaper.

    Sure....we carefully carry each piece of air separately from the trailer to the PCs on red velvet pillows.

    The funny thing is, people don't realize that we know most of the time what's in these packages if we're picking them up from a business. I treat the packages the way their receiving people do. If they toss, I toss. If they handle easily, I handle easily. People just think most of us don't give a chit.
