No packing material
what were you thinking?
Packages are stacked and piled upon each other in the tractor trailers as they are sent across the country. I don't car if it'* a feather that I'm sending..it'* getting packed so that I'd be willing to play catch with it and never worry.
Stuff does get damaged in transit and things do happen... taking the proper precautions up front is the only way to assist the package in possibly making it safely.
Out of all the items I've sent to members...including two three center tail lights. Florida, Minnesota and Alaska..... not one single package has shown up where the item was damaged.
I hope you insured it for much more than it was worth so that you can send that money straight to Bugsi and he can get one locally.
