    Hi there...

    Does anyone have any experience with large orders from DX?

    Any small orders with boxed items I make always get crushed in the post.

    If I make a large order (like 20 or so), does anyone know if it would be sent in a BOX?

    Thanks!

    Only if the size of the item is bigger.

    My RC helicopter arrived in a box. Everything else arrived in a padded envelope.

    The usually just wrap the original packaging in padding and ship it like that. It inevitably gets squished during shipping.

    When I ordered a R/C Helicopter and some smaller stuff (micro sd's etc), they came in the helicopters box. But apart from that my stuff's never come in a box...always bubble-wrap.

    I had 2 retractable headphones come in a large padded envelope. However when I ordered a 360 headset it came in some white envelope/bubble wrap thing. Baisicly this wasnt a paper enveloped lined with buble wrap. The out side is more of a plasticy kind. Thing is I can reuse it to send something to other people

    EDIT: Btw anyone notice the site is down?

    Same with me, I once ordered something really big, and the envelope they put it in was SO big I thought 'WTF? Did they make that envelope themselves? [​IMG]'

    Haha, they just stitched together a bunch of discarded envelopes to make some sort of giant mutant envelope.

    I want pix of of you with your head in the envelope!

    I'm tempted to order something huge just to see how big the envelope really is.....
