Re: Packaging 7854 scope for shipment?


Hi Brad,
Have you eve received anything that was packed with "Foam in Place". It is simple and quite robust. I have requested it whenever I win something that is fragile and valuable.

Subject: [TekScopes] Packaging 7854 scope for shipment?


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--
