Shipping - Packing Your Basoon

Step 4
For all long bore and short bore instruments, the appropriate size shipping box is 31”x14”x9”. For Fox® contrabassoons, the appropriate size shipping box is 54”x9”x15”. Do not put Styrofoam peanuts inside the box.

Step 5
Place the bassoon, in the hard case, into the box. It should be snug against the packing material. It is most important to protect the ends of the case; use at least three inches of shock-absorbent packing material around the ends of the case. Pack so that the case does not move within the box. Do not use Styrofoam peanuts.

Step 6
UPS recommends the addition of three inches of bubble wrap around the outside of the case, but do not tape the bubble wrap. This should fill the box. Do not use Styrofoam peanuts.
