|Packing a headjoint for shipping|
We thought about a few more scenarios and revisited our Shipping Manager, Chris Lavoie. Specifically, we wondered about shipping your flute and piccolo together in one box. To do this, you'll want to make sure you have a box large enough to fit both instruments. It's best to have the flute and piccolo each in their own case and then in their own box. Then, you'll want to place foam (or comparable packing material) on the bottom of the shipping box. Next, place the flute in the shipping box and the piccolo on top of the flute. Make sure there is packing material completely around the flute and piccolo. You'll notice a gap from the edge of the piccolo box to the edge of the flute box. All you need to do to remedy this is to fill the gap with more packing material, as you will see in the photos below.
