- The hull, front and back of the model ship rests in styrofoam and are secured with bungee straps. This ensures that the model cannot move during shipping.
- The model is then surrounded by a wood frame to ensure that none of the masts or booms are damaged.
- The wood frame has styrofoam on all of its edges to provide a cushion of safety to the wood frame when the box is moved.
- We then perform a seven-point inspection to make sure that your model is perfect before it is shipped.
- The model, safely surrounded by its wood frame, is then placed inside of a heavy, industrial-strength cardboard box.
- The box is marked with "This Side Up" and "Fragile" stickers to ensure that it is handled properly.
- We have been shipping with DHL Express and DHL Danzas for years. They know we sell model ships and handle the packages with extreme care.
- As a result of all of our precautions, less than 1% of our models are damaged during shipping.
