Sending instruments through the post
How To Pack Your Recorder Safely
Pack your recorder in a rigid case or box with each section wrapped individually in thin foam sheet or newspaper. This is most important - recorder keys and thumb rests may be damaged or may mark other sections. Fill the box with paper to prevent sections moving around inside. Pad the outside of the case or box with newspaper or foam sheet to protect it too from damage. If you can use a strong cardboard box rather than the original instrument case you may be able to reduce the weight of the parcel (and thereby reduce the cost of postage) without any greater risk to the instrument. We find that some maker's cases are a lot more susceptible to damage than their instruments.
