I absolutely dread packing turntables,but there is good money in them. The last one I sold was a Marantz unit that brought $671.Here's the feedback: MAGNIFICENT PACKING, QUICK SHIPPING, ABSOLUTELY PERFECT TRANSACTION, THANKS!!!! I use laptop boxes to put the cover in and also 22x22x12 double wall boxes (which cost $6 each). I can spend up to 2 hours figuring out how to bullet proof my shipments..sometimes it's enjoyable,some times it's maddeningly tedious. I buy foam corners which really facilitates fast packing of receivers and an industrial glue gun makes tape obsolete and stiffens up the box. That poly-foam is great stuff,but I refuse to spend that much money! I don't charge for packing materials and pass along the ebay shipping savings to the customer,which I think boosts the final sales price.Either way it all comes out in the wash. Sales are really good.One reason is the effects of inflation are ratcheting up the prices of everything so people are turning to ebay for substantial savings.Even run-of-the-mill things are bring prices which makes them attractive to list and if I can list 5 low dollar items and make $75 for an hour+ work that's still doing better than working a so-called real job today!
