I have someone shipping me a radio but I am not sure if they know the proper way to pack a tabletop. I have shipped them before successfully but I don't want to come off as obnoxious when I talk to him.

The easier way would be to send him a link to webpage that has the info. Does anyone have a good link?

yea I feel your pain. No doubt it may not go over as well as hoped, maybe ask how he intends to pack and ship. Does he warranty
against breakage for a "packing related error"?

I see you're in Ontario, that's not an eBay global shipping buy is it?

If it's Ebay, the seller has no choice but to warranty the item. If it arrives in pieces, Ebay's policy is very clear: the buyer gets the money back, no matter who's fault it is. It's the seller's responsibility to buy insurance, although the seller can include the insurance in the shipping charges to the buyer.

Craigslist is obviously a different story.
