Boy, I'm lucky that UPS shares a pile of the workload of delivering packages around Kamloops with Purolator. If they didn't, I'd surely be waiting until Wednesday to go and grab my board from their warehouse since they make 3 attempts before letting you pick stuff up in person, that means I'm usually forced to wait 3 extra business days to receive things from them. Today, shortly before noon, a familiar Purolator delivery guy showed up with the box in the post below in hand and I was quite giddy. I did try to make an unboxing video to show all of you what to expect when you open the box the board is delivered in but the angle I had my camera set to was lower than where my hands were holding things up to show.
When a LandYachtz board is delivered, it comes in a pretty plain-jane sort of box; there is no special logoing on it, it's your typical, unremarkable shipping box, likely provided by UPS themselves. Once the cardboard box is opened, there is no additional LandYachts product box containing the board, instead your board lies very nicely packed right inside. Mine came with some very heavy duty paper crumpled up at either end to prevent the board from sliding around the box. The board is wrapped in a thin sheet of styrofoam material to keep it from getting dinged or scratched in transit, it has cardboard wrapped around the tips of the board to keep those from getting beat up, and to hold all this packing in place, there is some shrink wrap tightly wound around the tips holding the cardboard and styrofoam sheet in place. It all was very tightly and professionally done in my opinion, good presentation in the packing department over all. The board itself (I ordered a complete) came fully assembled. Also included in the box was an issue of "Skate[Slate] Longboarding Magazine" as well as some stickers for the discerning gentleman who can't get enough of putting decals on everything he owns.
