How to pack a musical instrument for shipping by courier

Before shipping a musical instrument within Europe or internationally, it is necessary to prepare it for transportation. Since musical instruments are expensive and delicate and usually hold sentimental value, it is crucial to pay special attention when packing musical instruments for shipping.

  • Brass instruments. Are you sending a trumpet, trombone, horn, or other brass instruments? Start by placing your musical instrument in its original case or a proper size box. Cushion it properly till it won’t be able to move. Afterwards, nest the case in a bigger box and seal it properly with enough adhesive tape.
  • String instruments. Are you shipping a violin, a viola, a guitar, a mandolin, or a cello? Check our dedicated pages and make sure your musical instrument is safe for transit. Do you deed to ship a harp or double bass? Ask for an individual offer.
  • Percussion instruments. Drums and drum sets are the most popular musical instruments in this category. You can check a detailed page on how to pack and ship drum kit internationally. To send percussion instruments safely, make sure that they are appropriately protected with bubble wrap, immobile in the box, and sealed carefully.
  • Woodwind instruments. Packing and shipping a harmonica, flute, clarinet, or oboe is not tricky, but you also need to prepare such musical instruments properly. Make sure that the item is immovable by putting plenty of packaging materials and tightly sealing the box.
Eurosender cares about safety!

Every shipment is covered by insurance whose value will depend on the type of shipping service used. You can also purchase additional insurance during the ordering process.
