In most cases proper packaging
will be the main protection (and your insurance) against
shipment damage (unless factory new/factory packed).
All the insurance in the world won't protect an improperly
packaged shipment from damage. Try to use your best
judgment when packaging an item for shipment.
Delicate items should be packed on a stable base and
covered in a way to eliminate exposure to scratching
or dinging. Crating, pallets, and heavy gauge cardboard
should be considered for delicate items. Heavier, touger
items wouldn't need to be packed so carefully, but mobility
must still be kept in mind.

Loading and Unloading
When using commercial or terminal locations with a loading
dock, this is not an issue. But for residential pickup
and/or delivery this is a detail that must be considered.
In some situations you may want to plan on having friends,
relatives, or neighbors on standby to help with the
loading and unloading. In some cases additional services
such as lift gate may be required, however, the additional
costs are to be considered. Always remember a "truck
driver" does just what the title implies: drive
the truck. The driver is never responsible for loading
or unloading, although under reasonable circumstances
they may help.
