I've shipped speakers before with generaly good results. A pallet, shrink wrap and straps are a must for large speakers. I am most interested in what would be the safest and least expensive service. I just purchased a pair of speakers directly from the manufacturer. They are little over 100lbs each and they have been shipped well packed in two separate boxes (no pallet) via FedEx. I'm hoping for the best....
Not exactly but they are "self insured" (any claim payments come out of their bottom line) and, if UPS is any indicator, will result to underhanded and deceitful tactics to avoid paying a claim.
Unfortunately I have direct experience with UPS after they destroyed a pair of fully-insured Apogee Duetta Signatures. I will spare you the details but it was ugly and they were shameless in their actions.
