We recently received one of three shipments of our custom three foot and four foot long boxes and we wanted to explain why we don't cut corners when it comes to our shipping supplies. We know that the products we sell are heavy and can beat up a box pretty easily while in transit and because of this we invest heavily in our shipping supplies. Aside from following proper procedures when it comes to packaging our products we have custom self-enclosing heavy duty boxes made to ensure that our products make it to your door safely. Combining these heavy duty boxes with heavy duty strapping tape we are happy to report that in the last 3.5 years (yes, years!) we have not had a single report of a package being damaged in transit. Because we love our customers and our products we will continue using only the sturdiest packaging supplies.
