Re: Packaging 7854 scope for shipment?

Tony Fleming

When I received mine it was bubble wrapped, that was in a box. Than a
second box that had a space about 1" or so around filled with the plastic
"peanuts" (for a lack of a better word). FedEx was great and no physical
damage was done to my scope!
I would use a heavier box on the outside and regular box inside. Insurance
is good also, so if something goes wrong.....

I'm thinking of offering my 7854 FS and I'd appreciate advice on
packaging it
for survival on shipment to U.S. addresses. IIRC, packing the plug-ins and
keyboard separately is advisable, as is double-boxing the mainframe.
I'd plan on swaddling the scope in multiple layers of bubble-wrap, with
a sheet
of resilient foam to protect the front panel.

Our local pack-and-ship store has a bad reputation. Has anyone
successfully used a
commercial mover that offers pack-and-ship services?

If packing turns out to be a hassle, I'll list it for local pickup only.

Thanks in advance, and 73--
