it has been noted that the inside temps of a shipping truck can
reach over 120*f. if you have a freshly painted project that lands on the
skin side of the truck, you would be taking a terrible chance of heat damage
to the finish. I would find a way to minimize surface contact with the
packing material that would allow the most air circulation and hopefully
minimize any packing material sticking to the finish.
personally, I would select the shortest shipping time possible.
what are the predicted daytime temps between OH and WA for next week ?
[hopefully, the Nation’s “heat wave” will be gone by then].
