Just got mine from LP through DHL. It was inside a box with a DHL bag like others here, which I think is an improvement. My 3 prior orders from LP were only in bubble wrap. The first one was sent 4000km away to the wrong province, got to me pretty bashed up a month later. The second didn't have my complete address on the package, just the province and postal code. The third order I emailed them ahead to confirm my address and request for a box, they got the address right but no box.
Mine had the same glue mark on the same spot. Wondering if I'm brave enough for 1000 grit sandpaper.
