I have had pretty good luck on this till about two weeks ago.. i dont think it was the sender but the actual mailman that screwed up ... I went to the mailbox and had three packages shoved in the box so tight i coudlnt get them out.. took forever and almost pulled the box out of the ground .. once i got them out 3 of the 6 discs where all warped up and had to do the water trick but was just a total pain.. Instead of just putting them on the porch like they have in the past he decided to test my patience that day..

True, but the cost associated with this is probably significant, no?

THAT is something you have the right to file a complaint about. This is not good.

Ive always gone the "do not bend" route, never had issues.

Empty six packs flattened work really well for adding a little support to the package also the "do not bends" and "fragile" seem to help.i really get worried when im shipping to an apartment with those small mail boxes

That depends on what discs/how many. If i bought a CE Teebird i would request they spend another 2 dollars on a box

My last MVP shock had the rim gouged because it was shoved in the mailbox. I have also had two warped disc from other shipments. Every time the squeeze it in my mailbox the packaging gets ripped to shreds and scuffs the disc. I have complained but nothing has been done by postal service.

Every time there is something to big to fit in instead of cramming it he know puts it on my porch

Wow, that sucks, My mailman is kickass. Every package and oversize envelope (unless floppy so he knows it's like a shirt) is placed on my back porch. Really awesome, my UPS guy does awesome too, putting all my packages on the back porch. My house is front to a pretty busy street, so that is huge for safety.

Wow! I guess I take for granted that I live in a town house where we have those mailboxes that are like 3 inches tall and 12 inches wide and like 15" deep. If they dont fit in there we have the special ones at the bottom that they just put a key in your box and you get it outta the big box. That or they just drop it at the door. Some of these stories scary me and make me glad I havent had any issues like this.

If you mail the package as a First Class envelope instead of a First Class thick envelope/box, you may get a lower rate, but I believe it is treated differently in the USPS system.
My understanding is that they will process a thick envelope/box in the package system and a regular envelope in the envelope system. Different equipment and different standards.
Can anyone verify this for me??
