Top idea. I had my stuff in storage in Sydney for about 6 months this year and almost all the boxes have been damaged either by stacking or moisture. I’ll keep those cases in mind if in need storage again, cheers.
I don’t think any different from a cardboard box. And with either there’s a risk they’d want to look inside the black box…
Interesting, however, if you were to buy an amp in a box and take on as hold baggage, if you answer truthfully that the box wasn’t packed by you. When I did that once they got rather excited and I had to take it to a different drop-off point. It got through, but I I was lucky that I’s arrived at the airport with plenty of time, as it delayed me by three quarters of an hour before I could go to security myself.
Thats good. The way my original packaging returned means i think I’ll need new packaging.
The olive 250 did not enjoy the ride. The sleeve is quite dented on one corner. Im already in discussion with my dealer for a replacement sleeve…just hope naim still can supply.
Purchased an ex dem 200DR from a large midlands dealer almost a year ago, when I collected it they couldn’t find the box, I was informed they would order one and have it shipped directly to myself, still waiting and after several emails and the dealer blaming Naims back log of orders still nothing, not impressed at all, my biggest hate is when someone repeatedly says they will do something and nothing gets done
So looks like I need to take a different route, all for a box!!!
Sorry spotted the post and just triggered my frustration. Poor performance from a large Naim dealer or just as bad if its at Naim’s end.
I knew a guy that was working abroad for a while and when they decided to move house he couldn’t find the packaging for a huge pair of B&W speakers.
His wife had a tidy out the garage and it cost him over £600 for new packaging.
