Hello all, Here are a few tips: 1) When shipping gameheads across country, take pictures of your box or crate with the mount inside prior to shipping. Take a final picture of it boxed up. (This will carry more weight if you have to file a claim) 2) If possible, avoid truck lines that utilize partner carriers. Stick to direct service points. 3) Mark your box or crate with something unique such as a bright sticker to help identify if lost or misrouted. 4) Don't reference taxidermy on the bill of lading or box you are shipping. Try to use acronyms. Examples Blue Ridge Taxidermy could be BRT or Trophies Unlimited could be TU Enterprises. Hope this helps.
