Maybe this could help all you egg shippers??

    I have never shipped eggs before, but I thought maybe this would work for all of you that do (you may already know). I'm guessing you may use egg cartons but if your only shipping a few or if your out of cartons. [​IMG]

    It is a drink carrier that you get from fast food places. The eggs fit right in the cup holders and the center. Some smaller eggs may need a little extra padding around them.
    Maybe this can help minimize how much packing material you'll have to use. [​IMG]


    I've actually used these to put Christmas ornaments in when packing them up for the year. Sometime you can ask the restaurants for a bunch and they'll give them for free. But you may have to do a little sweet talk. [​IMG]

    Anyone...pros or cons?

    You are planning on bubble wrapping them also? (I just have to ask - sorry)

    Looks pretty interesting.

    Bubble wrapping would be a good idea [​IMG]

    Yeah, the only way this would work is if you bubble wrapped them or stuffed a LOT of shredded paper in there. . . We do indeed already ship eggs in cartons, but only with lots of shredded paper or the likes. Otherwise, there should be NO room for an egg to move around.
