    This is the shipping box that my BT Rijie came in today. Luckily the actual box inside was unharmed. Cataclizm1 wasn't so lucky though, I heard.

    Holey Moley...My Hard Hero 12' Optimus statue came in a box similiar to that. I think boxes would be handled better with 'Be fucking Careful with This Box' written all over instead of fragile.

    It's DHL, what do you expect?



    Though you could replace DHL with USPS, UPS, Fed Ex, Canada Post, or personal courier.

    You should see the number Fed-Ex did on the Box I shipped my PC to AZ in. My Plex on the side of my case is cracked now

    Yeah, I'm not shocked by this one. The only carrier I have luck with anymore is the USPS. I forgot to change my shipping prefrence from UPS to USPS with BBTS, so I'm a little nervous about my BT-18 delivery tomorrow.

    Stickers such as these are largely pointless and mostly ignored, sadly.

    Nothing like getting an entire skid of merchandise with "Do not double stack" stickers plastered all over it and the top completely mashed because someone, go figure, stacked another skid on top of it.

    I've heard that marking the box "Warning: Heavily Insured" is more effective.

    But yeah, boxes with big "Fragile" stickers on them are pretty much known to be major targets of abuse by shippers.

    Next time put some random WHMIS stuff on there. "Oxidizing AND biohazardous?!" And don't forget that "T" that no-one knows what it means.
