That means handset off the phone, and packing under, around, AND, ON TOP of the phone. It can't be able to move around. I have received phones and other types of items that were "packed" with no packing on top of item, so, of course, it was broken. But above all, you MUST ship it "Special Handling" with the yellow "Fragile" stickers on it. Paying the extra $12.00 is cheap compared to refunding the customer his money.

Phones MUST be packed in such a way that they are SURROUNDED by packaging material so that they can't move around and so that the packaging material can absorb impacts. Above all though, you really should use "Special Handling" and pay the extra $12.00. In addition to "Fragile" stickers, it will be shipped in it's own bin and will not be thrown or kicked. It really works.

Federal Express had a service called "White Glove" service for fragile items, but even they have eliminated that service. Really messed up if you ask me.Mike
