    What to ship subs in.

    Hey, I just bought a used xxx 15 that needs to be reconed and I was wondering what I should ship it in. I figured cardboard wouldnt work so should I make a crate like box for it and then put that in a cardboard box or what. Also how much is going to cost to ship this thing to RE. Thanks, Chief

    Yeah, just make the crate. Thats what RE ships them in. Shipping will vary based on what company you use, and where you live. Id figure on at least $50.
    The crate RE sends them in has plywood on top and bottom, with pieces of a 2" by 4" on each of the 4 corners, with foam stuck in there to help out too.

    I just wish shipping wasnt so freaking much, and insurance is a must.

    Ship it with DHL. They usually tend to be the quickest and cheapest. I sold an amp to a guy in washington state (Im in Ohio), and it got there in two days.
    The local shipping store told me its because DHL doesnt have all the ground facilities like UPS and Fed-Ex, so they fly things to their closest shipping dock.

    Re: What to ship subs in.

    it will cost a little more but take it to a UPS Store and they will pack it for you that way they are responsible for it getting there in perfect shape and if it doesn't it is covered by them with a no hassle/arguement since they did the packing. Just make sure you put it in a thick plastic bag so that nothing will actually hit the tinsel leads, vc, etc.

    Re: What to ship subs in.

    I guess that will save some time if they can pack it for me. Does Fed Ex have the no hassle/ argument thing like UPS since they would be packing it? Chief
