Nervous about shipping a guitar? Don't be. Shipping a guitar, bass or other instrument is a lot easier than you might think. Take a look at this video and see our recommendations on how to pack and ship a guitar as safely and securely as possible.
What you'll need
- Newspaper or other packing material
- A box
- Packing tape
Step 2: Fill in Holes Around Guitar
The idea here is to prevent the guitar from moving during shipment. You want to remove empty space in the case by filling any areas around the guitar with balled-up newspaper or other packing materials.
Think of it this way: if there's no empty space within the case, the guitar won't be able to shift and slide around.
Step 3: Box It, Fill in Space, Tape it Up
Same principal applies for the case inside the box. Try to fill-in any empty space so that the case and the guitar are as snug as possible. Again, the idea is to eliminate the potential for the case to move around within the box.
Now all that's left is to seal the box with packing tape and send it on its way.
And that's all there is to it. With this simple process you can rest assured that your guitar will get where it's going safe and sound. Now that you know how to ship a guitar the right way, it's time to list some more gear on Reverb!More:
