Just curious as the best way to ship 2 gallon cans without getting them damaged. Do I have to double box them, or what? Thanks, Sam

Double boxes never hurt. The cans are fairly light and not likely to get broken like a globe or lens. Make certain they can't slide around in the inner box and you should be good.

wrapped in 2 layers of bubble wrap, then double-boxed with packing peanuts in any gaps. or a single box is okay if using a double or triple wall box

Ive shipped dozens of 2 gallons. A few layers of bubble wrap and some peanuts go a long way.


Good oil cans don't wait for people, people wait for them.
