A very useful little tip for all you travelling crate diggers out there.
We are all well aware of just how awkward certain airlines can be when returning home with large amounts of extra baggage. Some of the fees that get added can be crazy, especially for heavy items such as the beloved vinyl records.
When you go to a different city to buy records and there’s plane travel involved, our advice is to print off a pre paid UPS or Royal Mail shipping label before you go, allowing for up to 10kg, grab a box from a shop (they all have them) and post them back to yourself on a slow service (£10 max) Thus rendering your hands free and shoulders in tact for sight seeing and supping pints. You also don’t have the airport size & weight headache.
This works on so many levels.
