Always seems to be either too much or not enough, doesn't it? I recently moved, and need to get new furniture. The old stuff was, well, old, and pretty worn out. I sold it, and I'm getting new stuff. About a quarter of it was poorly packaged enough that it was damaged enough I couldn't use it, and had to return it. The companies involved have been very good about it, either shipping replacement parts or replacing the item, but at what a huge waste! Tossed half a desk into a recycle bin, for example. All that just to say, I guess, that I sympathize with the problem, but don't really know what to do about it.
