    Default Shipping full buckets

    I'm deciding on selling some of this years crop in 60lb buckets. Is all that I do is thump a lid down and take it to UPS, label it up and off it goes? Or does the bucket need to be secured in something else before shipping?

    I know you use to be able to ship a bucket of honey in the bucket. They required them to have snap on lids with the tabs uncut. I have not shipped one in years. I would call UPS, the national number not some local drop off or packaging location, half the time they don't know Jack.

    they look strong, heat resistant, and have tamper proof lids.
