How Not To Ship Computers

V0oD0oMan I work in the Package Service Center at UPS (1554 comments)

PSC is an interesting place at UPS...first of all, that package is far from the worst i've seen. Frequently, people drop 21" monitors down drops of 5 feet because they don't fit on the belt, needless to say, these don't get very far. Another popular thing that people break is guitars...a box of 3 guitars makes a lot of noise when all of the necks break at the same time. The main policy there is to just put as much tape on it as you can and just send it on. Don't be surprised if you find a box without everything that was supposed to be in it, if it opens up, and what fell out isn't in the immediate area, or the person taping is just lazy, well, that's not going to get back into the box.
