I got a box my sister in law from Washington state that she shipped using USPS.  It looked eerily similar to the box in your picture.  The box had 3 bottles in it and unfortunately only 2 made it unbroken.  It was labeled fragile and the contents were packed really well.  They managed to crush one side somehow.   It must have been something incredibly heavy.

LOL... folks thinking that their personal freight is special.

Who thinks that?   Is it too much to ask for to get a package in roughly the same shape that  it was shipped in?

A drop in the bucket… They don’t care.

I bought a subwoofer from a local high end audio shop last year, and they agreed to deliver it.  When the driver brought it to my door, I saw that one corner of the box was crushed in, and pointed it out to him.  He didn’t seem to care, and wasn’t even sure about the exact price I was supposed to pay him.  And he was the early-twenties son of the owner.

 

Luckily, the box was big enough that it had a fair bit of space between it and the contents, so the sub was unmarked and seemed to operate just fine.  I hope that will be the last time that the shop embarrasses itself like that.  I like that shop, and the service is normally excellent.

That must be one of those new fangled boxes with the built in crumple zones. 😀 It's good that it protected the sole occupant on its long voyage.   As long as the item survived, it did its job. Toss it and forget it.

.......and people thought I was crazy for driving to Texas to pick up a preamp.

 

This picture normalizes that practice.

 

That’s the same reason that I took the ferry, then the highway, all the way to Seattle to pick up a power amplifier.  It came home safely with me, and sounds mighty fine to this day.
