Heyo,

I have to post a drumset and was wondering if anyone had experience in doing it?

Can I just go into the post office and say "give us a giant box there" or would I better off spending a couple of extra bucks getting UPS to do it or whatever?

Is there a crowd who can pack it up and deliver it for me?

Cheers in advance folks.

I don't know a thing about it, but in case it's not obvious, taking off the heads and nesting the drums is a good way to save space.

As it turns out - the cost of posting the drumset overseas (as an eBay buyer would most likely be) is about the cost of the kit itself. Boo-urns! :(

Most USA ebay sellers are lazy fucks who dont want the hasel of crating the drums & finding the cheapest possible freight rate.
They just go to usps or fedex & get a ridiculously huge quote.

Find out the dimensions & weight of the crate & research it yerself. You will defo get it cheaper.
