I'm trying to get one monitor shipped to me but the other guy is more paranoid about it than I am lol.They can afford if things go south but we can't, Anyways use thermacol to cover the box from outside and bubble wrap to cover monitor inside the box. The main damage is done when courir guys throw boxes from trains/flights or on there warehouses so most important part is to make sure the product inside the box doesn't move. This way you can be 90% sure that damage won't be done
The packaging is my biggest concern as its clear than many sellers here either don't know how to pack the items properly or simply don't care. My last order here came wrapped in ****ing newspapers with bubblewrap which were already all popped. Like what the hell was even the point of it?? I haven't even tested the items yet but I hope they will have no problem (hope I don't jinx it).
Anyway, how I would pack a monitor is, put styrofoam of 1" thick first on the monitor screen and tape this on the monitor. Then put a lot of cushioning (any size will do I think) around the other places. Bubblewrap might do if there's no styrofoam. I really like the plastic ones with big air bubbles in them. Amazon shipped many of my orders this way.
Anyway, I feel that with good care during packaging the shipping will be okay.
Does anyone want to give it a real test? lol.
