At Mail Boxes Etc. we deal with different types of items to be shipped or simply customers who required special packaging. We had the case of a big harp that was traveling with the owner and needed to be packed for the flight. Even though we are never in control of what happens in the transportation process we can reduce the chances of damage by packing as good as possible.
Another case was a beautiful old clay statue which is very fragile and had cracks already. A lot of protection material, and space to absorb all impact was necessary, in this case for more safety was placed in a custom made pallet so it would be handled more carefully. We can say it arrived in one piece and there is a happy customer enjoying the new acquisition.
