BUT Shipping Cost? I keep getting HUGE boxes that are 1/2 to 1/3 full with air pouches or peanuts to fill the balance. UPS & FED-X both charge by dimensions & weight so big boxes that weigh 3 lbs. get charged like they weigh 25 lbs. That's why the high shipping charges - idiots in the shipping dept.
Granted, using excess packing material, increase the cost of shipping.
On the other hand, inadequate packaging will cause UPS and FEDEX to deny any claim for damages.
So, it's that kind of world.
Dam if you do and dam if you don't.
What would you suggest that shippers conform to?
