Frequently Asked Violin Questions

How can I package my instrument for shipping (via UPS or other)?

The violin must be in a violin case. Velcro the neck down with the excisting velcro in the case. Place a paper ball on the chin rest so it holds the violin down when you close the case. Put full documentation identifying yourself, your address and phone number, the purpose of the shipping (status of the instrument, such as repair, rental termination, rental switch, return of try-out and so forth) and a copy of the original invoice (if applicable) in the case with the violin, then close the case.

Make a layer of styrofoam peanuts in the bottom of a cardboard box which is larger than the violin case, place the violin (in its case) on that layer and fill up the box with peanuts. The violin's case now "floats" in the middle of the box, on all sides surrounded by peanuts.

Put an extra copy of the full documentation in the top of the box and then close the box, taping it securely. Attach a label with your address and the recipient's address onto the box. Contact us before you ship to us to make sure that we are ready to receive a UPS parcel.

See our "Links" page for a link to UPS in order to plan your shipping and calculate the cost.
