If you have experience shipping a guitar, pack the guitar yourself (please follow our Guitar shipping best practices). If you are new to shipping, we recommend you take it to the closest UPS to have it packed for you. They will charge for supplies and packing the guitar.  If you are taking the guitar to UPS to have it packed you can take your Ship Guitars discounted UPS label to UPS and they will ship it for no additional charge.

Guitars worth more than $1,000 should be picked up by UPS or taken to a UPS Customer Care Center not a UPS retail location for insurance purposes. We also recommend they are sent overnight or two-day air. This is the safest method to ship a guitar. Please call or email if you have any questions.

If you are shipping Internationally, you will start the order by completing the basic order information then the Pre-Ship Questionnaire.

Our team will then contact you to review your order and complete your order manually to ensure the highest quality shipping documentation and service available.

If you have any questions, contact us 410-261-4558 or email us [email protected].

No Commercial Flight Worries

Anyone who’s ever taken a guitar on a commercial flight has to get the jitters when a valuable instrument gets put on a plane unattended. Shipguitars took care of sending me an instrument from California to Luxembourg (Europe) not only in the midst of the busy Christmas chaos, but in the midst of the COVID-19 chaos of late 2020. The guitar arrived in top condition, thanks to the careful packaging, and just needed a basic setup to sound great again. As some delays were caused by the situation surrounding the pandemic, the team at Shipguitars was constantly in touch with me to keep me updated on the package’s whereabouts. Great service, great care!

International Shipping Was Easy

SHIPGUITARS – Upington South Africa to Louisville Kentucky I recently found a desirable vintage Epiphone guitar online which was located in South Africa but the owner was no longer in retail and asked buyer to arrange shipping to the United States. I searched online and found ShipGuitars. Kevin at ShipGuitars gave me a quote which didn’t stray far from final shipping price and promptly returned calls. This really helped as the instrument was in the least populated part of North Africa near a town called Upington in the Northern cape. This is a place so Rural that the freight co.  didn’t even have a hub so Kevin and his team reached for solutions  while I did too which we eventually solved. Another challenge was the age of the instrument and there were some questions about the woods banned under CITES treaty. Kevin clearly laid out what I needed to know and was able to legally get the instrument cleared through customs. He was extremely patient with all of the hurdles that kept occurring and got the instrument to me safe and within a very reasonable amount of time considering the delay in locating a courier which was literally the missing link. I’m really glad I chose these guys as they made every effort to get it to me and that they did achieve. Thanks team!!! Sincerely,

– Franco Scalzo

I highly recommend them for safe and expedient shipping of rare and expensive instruments.
