A Note About Packaging Your Guitar

Make sure to take good care when packing a guitar. Guitars are really very fragile musical instruments and need to be protected when traveling through a very busy courier network. Please use a very sturdy and durable container that will withstand other parcels inside the van during transit. Moreover, use a large amount of bubble wrap and filler within that container to avoid dents and scratches. Do check out some guitar packing tutorials if it’s your first time.

It will take less time packing your guitar than possibly trying to put a claim through if it arrives damaged. We do not offer protection cover and it is carried on a non-compensation so make sure that it is safely and securely packed.
