Are you thinking about taking your favorite musical instrument to another side of the world? We’re here with a few tips on how to get it done best.  

Delivery of musical instruments can be a very tricky thing to do, especially if you need a fragile one like a violin or a guitar to be moved. Therefore, many consumers of postal services are worried about the way their musical instrument will be shipped. Meest International has had an experience of shipping such items so here we are with a few tips for you to consider.  

How to pack a string musical instrument? 

The first issue that worries our customers is getting together their musical instrument, its case, and additional package (if applicable). Here’s how you can do that: 

  1. Take off the strings on your guitar or violin or at least loosen them. In the first case, pack them separately.  
  2. Cushion your instrument in the bubble wrap before you put it into the hard case that you use regularly for your instrument. If it’s a violin, a cello, or another musical instrument with a bow, consider packing it in a bubble wrap as well to prevent damage during delivery.  
  3. Cover your hard case in an additional wrap to protect it from outer cracks or potential damage from falling while it’s moved from your PUDO to the next point in the delivery chain.  
  4. Consider using an additional shipping box. Be sure to choose a suitable one so that your musical instrument isn’t trembling inside while being delivered.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the process of your musical parcel shipping to any other part of the world.  

  1. Choose the delivery service. All the most popular shipping services are ready to help you with your request to take your instrument anywhere in the world. What you need to do is find out what they offer and which one is the most desirable for you.  
  2. Compare prices and additional services you may want to get. Take a look at what the delivery companies have to offer in terms of shipping speed, rates, and quality of packing. Be sure to consider whether it’s worth doing anything on your own if the delivery service doesn’t offer some kind of packaging you prefer.  
  3. Think about insurance. In case your musical instrument is too expensive, or you just want to protect it regardless of its cost, order insurance from your courier or any shipping platform like Meest International. 
  4. Collect all the supportive things for your instrument. Be it batteries, a mediator, or an additional set of strings, put them inside your parcel but avoid direct contact with open strings of your guitar or any other unprotected parts of the instrument. 

Now that you know how to pack and ship your guitar or any other string musical instrument you play, you can be sure about the delivery safety.
