Not sure I can cope with that again: it took three physical deliveries to get one that worked on arrival last time. Couriers don't like heavy stuff, and generally drop it, a lot.

UPS are the worst, in my experience - I've yet to have a single package delivered by them in a condition which didn't mean full photographic documentation while opening. It seems that you desperately need decoy outer packaging for them to use as a football / ladder / chair while the inner packaging remains relatively intact*. Festooning packages with "FRAGILE" tape is obviously just seen as a challenge ...


* It's the "crumple zone" technique for parcels.
