Being a college tuba player, last summer I worked for UPS for a little extra summer cash. Having worked there and having seen how the system works and how the packages are handled, I am hesitant to send anything via UPS. Since I am a musician, I took caution in moving any type of trunk or box that had "fragile" stickers on it, but you have to realize that the at 3am, the average workers is not to concerned about the well-being of the package.
Just my experience
