When deciding to ship a violin and bow internationally, follow these easy guidelines to ensure your instrument can be transported safely:
REASONS TO SHIP
Due to its fragile nature, we always recommend wherever possible to use a violin case and violin shipping box to transport your violin safely. These are available to purchase from music stores as well as online. All additional materials such as bubble-wrap, cardboard, packing peanuts and paper can be found in stationary or hardware stores, and you may also find some which can be reused around the house or office.
With Eurosender, every shipment is covered by basic insurance included in the price. Additional insurance is also available to purchase during the booking stage. Please have in mind that insurance may not apply when shipping restricted items such as fragile violins.
Insurance may not apply for fragile or valuable items such as antique violins, as these are considered restricted and prohibited items by most courier companies. Individuals who choose to ship fragile and valuable violins do so at their own risk. For more information on shipping valuable items, please see our dedicated page or reach out to our experts who will be happy to advise you.
Take into consideration these guidelines when shipping a violin abroad or domestically. Nevertheless, please consider that following them does not guarantee that the courier company will transport your package without restriction. In case you decide to ship valuable items such as violins and musical instruments, Eurosender will not be responsible for any damages caused by the transportation of your shipment.
