I dont charge for boxes or packing material. In the case of LARGE, HEAVY, very FRAGILE items. Over the years of collecting I have seen firsthand, many times, the damage done to valuable antiques and collectables, by the different carriers.So, with some items I would request the shipper to add extra packing materials, as well as, other times request double boxing and always explain that I was more than willing to pay extra, for the peace of mind, to have that extra protection.
