A Note About Packaging Your Guitar

Make sure to take good care when packing a guitar to be sent by courier. Guitars are really very fragile musical instruments and need to be protected when travelling through a very busy courier network. Please use a very sturdy guitar case or hard case container that will withstand other parcels inside the van during transit. Moreover, use a large amount of bubble wrap and filler within that hard case container or guitar case to avoid dents and scratches.

It will only take less time packing your guitar than possibly trying to put a claim through if it arrives damaged. We do not offer protection cover and it is carried on a non-compensation for this item so make sure that it is safely and securely packed.

Extra Advice for Shipping Guitars

Reflect on the information that eBay offers if you want some extra advice for shipping guitars. Here are some of the tips they provide:

  • Be sure that you use a sturdy/durable shipping cardboard box, heavy paper, foam padding and packing tape.
  • Detune the strings- taut strings snapping can be a disadvantage so if probable loosen them off by two octaves to lessen the risk.
  • Use a sturdy guitar case or hard case to minimize the risk of damage, if possible
  • Guarantee that the guitar cannot move around in the cardboard box to decrease the accidental of damage.
