How to package and ship your items

To ensure that your package reaches us safely, choose a strong box that will securely hold the weight of your books. We do not provide boxes or packaging materials.

We cannot be held accountable for books damaged in transit due to substandard packaging and will not be able to pay for these books.

To ensure that books are not damaged please follow these guidelines:

  • Use a sturdy box. Thin boxes (e.g., cereal boxes) may not protect your books in shipment.
  • Do not use packing peanuts for packing material. Packing peanuts shift during transit, damage pages and often become crushed by the weight of the books during shipment! A large number of shipments we've received using packing peanuts result in several damaged books.
  • Choose the right size of the box. Huge boxes of books nearly always result in damaged books
  • Keep the weight of each box under 30 lbs. Heavy boxes nearly always result in damaged books
  • Use wadded-up newspaper to fill gaps. Newspaper can be wadded up tightly and provide protection

Stack books as neatly as possible. Placing the books in a row helps to prevent damage to the pages during transit.
*****The books pictured above are packed without order and are more susceptible to movement and therefore damage during transit.
By packaging your items correctly as in reference to the above, you can reduce the likelihood of your items being rejected upon arrival.
