Packing & Shipping - Antique Tube Radios & HI-Fi Stereos

Shipping to Us

How to ship an antique radio:

, be sure to wrap the radio really well. If possible, remove the tubes and wrap them in bubble wrap individually and place them in a smaller box, tucked safely away from the radio cabinet. Place the radio in a garbage bag and tape it securely around the radio to keep it clean and isolated from other items and shipping materials. Then wrap the radio all the way around with large bubble wrap (3/4" to 1" bubbles). Place the radio in a box about 2" bigger all the way around. Make sure there is bubble wrap (or Styrofoam) underneath the radio in the box. Add extra bubble wrap (or Styrofoam) around the radio to fill the gap on all sides and over the top of the radio. Do not use newspapers or cloth!

: Place the box inside a bigger box, again 2" all the way around. Use plenty of bubble wrap under, around and on top of the first box. Be sure to include a note with your name, address, phone and email inside the box. Then make sure to mark the package FRAGILE on all four sides and draw up arrows with a black marker; indicating which way is up for the shippers.

, insure the package for more than it is worth to you! Insurance is really not expensive and is better to have than not have these days. Let us know the tracking number when you ship it and we will keep an eye out for it. Feel free to contact us for assistance if needed.
