$40 worth of bubble wrap, perforated every 12 inches. Brilliant.
This is seven linear feet, and while I could have stuffed things into five linear feet, it would have decreased my costs by only about $100. The grand total from Boston to Minnesota was $1650. It was picked up on Wednesday and delivered the next Tuesday, which is pretty amazing.
Backing in magic.
Some casualties. But not many.
Sadly...one of them was the leak coming from the roof. I ended up having to open up 8 boxes, and do several loads of laundry/dry cleaning, unwrap a bunch of dishes that were wrapped in soaked bubble wrap, and toss four books. But ABF was outstanding in helping me get reimbursed.
