I've not seen a thread on here that has ideas on how to post metal safer. so i thought i would start one. Start with the basics. don't use your home address. even if you don't store your metal at home it could possibly make you a target. a P.O box is the way to go. PM's are quite heavy (might spark the curiosity of an unscrupulous mail sorter/postman) when i pack up something to post out, i try to put as much "filler" scrunched up news paper taped into balls and put them all around the outside of the goods. some post offices sell little inflated airbags also. the extra size hides the condensed weight. even in a satchel. It's always best if nobody knows what you are posting. Always get tracking. if for no other reason than peace of mind. it can be stressful having things in transit. I'm sure other people have suggestions or things to add. I'm not posting this cos of any negative experience i have had, just thought it might be a useful thing to have.
