    bubble-mailer?!?

    Advertisements
    Does anyone have any experience with mailing something not in a box to a SO overseas?

    I ordered a laptop case for DB, but it won't fit into any of the boxes I have available to me, its a wierd shape. The post office suggested to put it in one of those bubble-mailers, but I'm not sure if it would survive the trip over.

    Thanks for any input!!

    If letters can get over there, so can those mailers. Why not send it in the box it came in since you said you ordered it? I'm a box hoarder these days. I have the flat rates sitting in the dining room, but I was SO glad I saved the box BestBuy sent the laptop in, because it fit all the crap I needed to send him in the first package. Would have taken 2-3 flat rate boxes to manage it.

    I've used them PLENTY of times!

    For a laptop, use bubble-wrap and balled up newspaper, so the laptop does not shift.

    Since it's just the laptop case, it should be fine.. I'd just put it back in the box it came in and wrap that in brown postal paper.. then address it and ship....

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need
