The LBS shop that packed my 57cm '86 Miyata 710 for $75 packing fee did a piss-poor job, and it arrive with a bunch of new scratches from AZ to OH.

Conversely, the 25" '82 Miyata 1000that I shipped from OH to Washington state arrived in the same condition that I sent it -- packed by me!
I would have removed the fork, but lacked the proper tool for the headset...






Total packing cost for the 25" frame Miyata was under $20 for pool noodles, zip ties and recycled (and cut-down) E-bike double-wall box.
