Mostly I've been pretty lucky.  But there was once when someone shipped
a few boxes of stuff to me (in Canada) from Norway.

With no padding material whatsoever.

Most of the stuff was wires and such that didn't mind, but there were
some three or four laptops.  All suffered damage severe enough to put
them in the "parts machines" pile when I unpacked them.  *grrr*

Fortunately they weren't especially valuable laptops....
