Packing a whole Philco 40-150 wood cabinet radio.
This is a Zenith 6-S-222 table top.
I received this glass dial scale from Germany shipped DHL. It arrived in great shape!
This is "Old School" packing techniques and materials.
SABA Villingen 125
The dial glass was broken and the dial glass frame and chassis were bent from some sort of impact. I believe the original box was too small for both the chassis and the speakers. There was not enough bubble wrap or energy absorbing material to mitigate the shock energy.
After procuring an expensive replacement glass and straightening the chassis and frame I constructed a protective wooden box. This box was wrapped in 3" of bubble wrap. This was placed inside a new double walled shipping box.
I can not recommend a particular shipper. From all that I have read on USENET, the forums and my personal experience, it appears there are trouble spots, cities or Zip codes with each shipper.
Too little space between the cabinet and box side walls.
