Now that's going the extra mile. You could drop kick that bad boy and it wouldn't hurt it.

Great post, Italia! Hey, what's the postage for a normal boxed game packed like?

for a 5$ game it might not be worth all that extra precaution but for top dollar games, yes this is highly good. I always send me games that way to ensure proper delivery and safety.

Thanks ;-)
Usually national tracked shipping cost 9,90€ and are very safe and quickly.
Unfortunately Italian posts are very expensive so for international shipping I usually spend about 13€ for a tracked one but for three or more games also 19€, it depends by the weight.

When I ship with fully tracked and insured one to Australia I spend a lot of money, about 40€.

However when I ship 5$ games I don't take al these precautions :-P but however I send also them in a very safe way ;-)

My balance says 840g (there are two games inside, also a Perfect Dark packaged in the same way).

Recently, i sent a package- i was very proud of it!
If you want to know how well i packed it, just ask Vinyl.

For those who think packing items perfectly isn't important... think again!


The people in this video are making national news.
I worked in this industry for nearly ten years, and it upsets me to see this level of ignorance; a harsh reality.

•Their average wage is $15.00-$60.00 (per hour) especially during the holiday season.

Remember:

The dude who launched the TV is the "best" :cussfit:

Thanks for share this video ;-)

I've started to improve my way of packaging since I've seen my postman launching parcels inside my garden!

Exactly!

The package was insane! took me awhile to make it open..
And very creative because it had a can-holder inside holding a can! :D

Thank you Vinyl, :n64:

I acquired the same packing supplies as PEPSI/MT.DEW company uses for consumer gift packs.
It was also evenly "weight distributed"... and NOT against any regulations- PERFECT

The employees in that video- will get fired.

Thanks for the post. I would greatly appreciate if a seller would send me a boxed game like this. The anticipation to get it all off would be awesome. :gift:
