Quality Packaging

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd share this with you as I've never seen anything like it before. Recieved a record this morning and it was packed in a jiffy bag with what more or less constitutes a plank of wood to stop it bending, look how thick it is! Record was safe as houses.

I've had the same thing from the States, but no jiffy bag - just a brown envelope.

Can't remember seller - wonder if it was the same person :lol:

I got an Ann Sexton the other day wrapped like this minus the wood. :ohmy: Couldn't believe it was still in one piece.

Ordered an Originals LP from the states a couple of weeks ago for about $1.99. When the package arrived I thought my boat had come! There were 3 LP's in the package. However...

On opening the package, the LP on top was Ben by Michael Jackson, and one on the botton was just as bad & both in really crap condition. It then dawned on my that this was just the packing (and a novel way of getting rid of some rubbish vinyl too I guess)!

I once ordered, "Just can't wait any longer" by BIg Maybelle from a guy in New York who was selling a fair amount of high dollar, nice condition items. It arrived packed like the Volcanos record above but cracked nearly in half. I told him the deal & mailed it back excited that he said no problem he had another mint copy. Two weeks later, same envelope, same result to what he held was a previously mint record. I was shocked, he made no attempt to protect the record whatsoever, and the BIg Mybelle i bought was cheap in comparison to some of his other sales. FInally I recieved a THIRD copy of the record, packed THE SAME WAY :lol: and a miraculously unbroken 45... I DON'T GET IT :rofl:

If you've ever worked on the arrivals deck of a large Royal Mail sorting centre, it's a miracle so much of this stuff survives the journey unscathed.
