When should you ship Christmas gifts so they arrive before December 25? In Santa Barbara, ship your gifts FedEx by December 17 and get the best price for FedEx Ground or Home Delivery.
When you are shipping important, fragile, or valuable items, sometimes a cardboard shipping box is not sufficient to ensure adequate protection from transportation handling. Double-boxing, double-walled boxes and edge protectors can add some protection but still allow for the possibility of crushing or punctures. When heavy items are stacked on top of the box, or the box itself is dropped or bumped, the contents can be damaged. For items worth thousands of dollars or more, the safety offered by a wooden crate is required. Crating your art, furniture, or equipment is the best option when you need superior protection.
Mirrors come in every shape and size, from simple dorm-room rectangles with plastic black frames (or no frames) to ornate gold-leaf designs from the 18th century. Some art-deco, modern, or contemporary style mirrors have interesting decorative elements made from wood, plastic, or metal, and can be just as delicate.
So, how do you ship a mirror without damaging or breaking it (and avoid 7 years of bad luck!)?
