    I'm an American who's lived in Germany for several years and who's amassed a large collection (500 plus) of Region 1 DVD's. In a few months, I'll be returning to live in the states but am reluctant to ship my valuable discs using a regular moving company. I suppose I'm concerned about theft or damage during handling or shipment. Has anyone out there ever coped with this situation and found a good, workable way to make it happen, so that everything arrives intact? All comments appreciated.

    My suggestion is to use a name brand shipper (FED-EX etc..) and insure it for the full amount. That seems to be the safest way to do it.

    I agree, use FedEx or hire a private jet [​IMG]

    I've shipped my collection a couple of times across states(1000+ dvds). I used Fed Ex Ground. The best tip I can offer is place a folded up paper towel inside each case against the dvds locking hub. This will hep pervent them from popping loose during shipping. Good Luck[​IMG]

    My only experience was a 50+ import DVD order and the package was very damaged and I think customs opened up the box and fooled with it.
