Their toilets and sinks experienced damage during standard ground shipments and they wanted to fix the problem. Their original packaging process consisted of 40 square feet of foam air pillows that deflated by the time the shipments arrived to their destination. This made them shift to shipping everything LTL (Less than truckload). The real cost of damage.
