Brilliant! - I imagine I was the cause of some hilarity in the sellers household. ;D
I intended to ask "When you pack the phone, please ensure that the body and handset can't knock together in the box. Please do not pack with the handset sitting on the phone".
At least the phone and handset were separately wrapped in reasonably thick wadges of newspaper, with the handset at the side of the phone.
The only other padding was a slab of polystyrene in the bottom of the box - nothing on top or at the sides, and no bubble wrap.
It was not packed full so the phone was sliding around quite nicely. The box itself is still in excellent shape so I think it was actually well handled in shipment (amazing!).
