    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.
