I’m also on the same boat as JasonD. Had a few extra questions:

(1) does anyone have any recommendations in the NYC areas for reputable shippers that will deliver the drum door to door?

(2) the only thing that I’m concerned about shipping are two computer monitors. They are both used and it is clear that they are but was curious for any advice to avoid paying high taxes and fees? Should I not tell anyone they are in there and hope for the best?

(3) the drum comes with a latch that allows for a little lock. Do y’all usually put locks on it? How do you all go about securing the lid to make sure no one opens it and stuff.
I use Tony Shipping on Long Island in Bay Shore,, never a problem

Hey all!

Just wanted to circle back to say thank you for everyone's input. I opted for using a shipper called: Santiago Cargo Express. They have great reviews on google and are one of the few shippers that pride themselves in items arriving to DR (without theft)... Will give an update once it actually arrives to see if anything is missing but figured it would be useful to share in case anyone was interested: https://www.santiagocargoexpress.com/index.php/en/
