Any tips and/or advice?  I kept all my packing material.  Of course the move is fully insured but don't want to even think about having to deal with that.

Jim ships these all over the world, shouldn't be a problem.

I've found the loaders and unloaders to be slightly gentler when they understood a generous tip would be forthcoming if they just did their job properly. Otherwise why not just ship them, which is what Jim does  :)

When I moved to Highlands Ranch just outside Denver I hauled all my things that I did not want the movers to handle, such as my stereo system and artwork.

I highly doubt good movers will be rougher on your speakers than UPS or FedEX is.

I have moved three times and each time the movers did an excellent job.

Just pack the speakers and you will be fine.

Good luck.

Ship them separately using the shipper that Jim uses?  :scratch:

Can you wait until October? Have Jim bring them to RMAF in his trailer.

If you cant move them yourself pack them well.  Tell the shipper or moving company they are fragile and watch where they put them in the truck...nothing on top of the speakers or other stereo gear is my recommendation.  If you can put a table or other furniture over the speakers in the truck that is one way to protect them.......I have done this on moves before and it has worked out fine.    Good luck and Welcome to Colorado!  :D

  You got that right Bro. I shipped a pair of speakers to a buyer in Iowa by UPS. One of them got damaged. Luckily the buyer bought insurance.
   If you have the original shipping boxes might not be a problem.

                                                                    Cheers

I will not trust a moving company to move any of my belonging let alone my stereo gear. In my opinion nobody care for your belongings as much as you do.

  Hi Guy:
     I know you are moving to Denver but from where? Maybe I got some Buds that can help.

                                                   Cheers

I've move twice to Europe but I packed all of my electronics and speakers but I did let the movers load the equipment into the crates.

I have 80 pound commissioned floor standing speakers that I personally have helped to move (U-haul from the builder's house in Arkansas and minivan when we moved from one house to another a year later).  Tips can only work if it's the same guys for the entire trip.

Hi,

Jim's packaging is pretty good.  I had HT2's shipped to Australia using his regular packing and no problems at all.

Good luck

As has all ready been stated a moving company will show much more care than UPS or FedEx. When shipping with UPS or FedEx the boxes would be moved on and off of different trucks and handled by many different people. With a mover they would be loaded on the truck then off loaded at your new location. If packed properly I see no issues at all using the moving company. Plus why pay the additional cost to UPS or FedEx to have the speakers shipped when you're already paying the moving company.

I've received two pairs of used Salk speakers (1801 TLs and HT2-TLs) and sold a set of SongTowers/Song Center recently. FedEx Ground was used for all of these shipments and there was not a single issue with any speakers.
