I forgot one more tip to avoid damages: If your company name has the word taxidermy or wildlife studio in it, avoid writing that on your crate or box. That includes hides and mounts. Example: If you company name is Wildlife Taxidermy Art you could write WTA Enterprises, LLC or something to that effect. This will help keep the crazies from smashing your mounts or "accidentally" crushing it during the shipping process. Let me know if you have any questions. Glad to help!
