Wrap the accordion in bubble wrap. Clear tape on the bubble wrap makes it hard to cut and recycle, so if possible use masking tape. Do not send the case, if the accordion is being sent in for repair or estimate. Ship it inside a strong cardboard box.Accordion players around the nation rely on:
The best position for the accordion inside the shipping container is...upright in playing position, with the accordion diagonal in the shipping container.
If the accordion were horizontal with the keyboard up, the bass mechanism is only supported by the valve springs, and when a heavy box is thrown, the impact fo the heavy box falling is likely to pull the bass buttons down and collapse the mechanism, a condition which takes me 10 minutes to over 2 hours to rectify, depending on whther any parts got broken. One very important other thing is to keep the accordion from knocking around. It should not be free to move but also not squeezed under pressure by the padding in the case, if the case is being sent.
Label the box on all sides "FRAGILE DO NOT DROP"Please call or E-mail me before sending it.Send to:
