Almost four years ago when going online with an eCommerce site to grow a neighborhood liquor store, we just assumed that styrofoam wine shippers was what we should use for shipping. Yea, the prices were high and the space these shippers took up made it impossible to buy in large quantities but we were content that at least we were using the best protection available to ship wines all over the country. That opinion changed late last year when a bottle of wine in a 12 bottle shipper broke and created a huge mess for a customer in addition to the filing of a FedEx claim for us. I began searching for something better and got samples of a few different alternatives while still thinking that styrofoam just had to be the best. After packing bottles in this spirited shipper, I realized where the styrofoam wine shipper falls short as it still allows the bottles to bounce around due to variable bottle heights and the remaining space. This unique system virtually locks bottles in place limiting any movement in addition to the protection from all the cardboard and even a shelf which the bottles sit on. The rest as they say is history as I can't begin to express how much this whole scenario was a blessing in disguise. No wonder these spirited shippers have a patent! They have been successful in protecting everything we've shipped in the past 8 months and cost a fraction of the big brand Styrofoam shippers which increases margin. Since they ship flat and take up so little space, buying in large quantities gets great discounting and saves a fortune on our inbound shipping costs. The company is friendly and turns orders around immediately.
