Once your item has been shipped, be sure to upload the tracking information for the buyer so they can track the item.
Preparing Your Shipment
Selecting the correct shipping box:
When using a box to ship a firearm, always make sure it’s in excellent condition. Try to avoid boxes with punctures, rips, tears, or external damage. If you must reuse a box from a previous shipment, you will want to make sure all previous labels have been removed entirely.
Protecting your firearm:
When shipping your firearm, make sure to wrap it in bubble wrap or another protective material. Securing this material with packing tape is also recommended. If you are including loose parts, always make sure they are secured separately. This will ensure that the firearm arrives in excellent condition.
Sealing the package:
Please secure the package so that it stays sealed during transit. There is no such thing as too much tape when sealing the top and bottom of your box. Too much is better than too little.
