Those cans didnt get damaged in shipment unless the entire box was crushed on all sides, he sent different cans than pictured IMO

They travelled 1000+ miles bouncing around full with a thin layer of bubble wrap and nothing else separation them. You could very well be right though. Guess time will tell if he posts more on eBay

Seems like the fact that the cans were FULL, coupled with poor packaging and distance travelled would quite possibly cause the damage…

Another reason you empty cans.

It's sooo simple,,
Full or empty.
Go to a carpet/flooring store and ask to buy a hard center cardboard tube from a roll of vinyl flooring, cut into 6" long lengths for US qts, 7" for imperial qts., wrap the can in plastic or newspaper and insert into the cut tube. If still worried about it you can wrap the tube in bubble wrap.
Easy Peasy...

For those of you who have bought cans from me, you know my packaging techniques. I do what Dave said, then I wrap the tube in bubble wrap, then I put it in a box with foam peanuts. I’ve never had a can get damaged.

I get my tubes from a carpet store and cut them to length on my saw.
