I know not every post office would be willing to do this, BUT they should, and you have the right to complain until they do! It is their job to get the packages there safely and well for how much shipping anything is anymore, it SHOULD get their safely! Anyway, I got a box of eggs today and they had put the box inside on of the white USPS carrying boxes ( if you don't know what it is think a plastic/cardboard file box ) and secured it in there with those plastic straps ( not zip ties but kind of the same idea) VIOLIA! The box could not get smashed and would not get dropped down conveyors! It is the post offices job to get fragile items there in one piece! My post master is also checking for me on insurance. If insurance covers broken eggs or not, I understand they don't guarantee they will hatch, but I've had quite a few broken batches this year and when you end up with 3 eggs instead of six, your $5 eggs quickly turn into $10 eggs!
