When shipping a saxophone, it is important to remember that the instrument case is not a good shipping container. When packing for shipping, wrap your instrument in several layers of bubble wrap. Place the instrument in a sturdy cardboard box with at least five or six inches of packing peanuts surrounding the horn. Shake the box to settle the peanuts and add more if needed. It is not necessary to ship the case along with the instrument. However, with the smaller instruments shipping a clarinet or flute in the case is advisable as long as you place bubble pack inside of the case so the instrument does not shift during shipping. Be sure to include all your contact information and instructions with your instrument. I suggest insurance in the amount of the value of the instrument.
