shipping umbrellas

So here's a silly question - how do brands ship their parasols to you? I got one of my friends who went holidaying in Japan to buy me a parasol ("it's a white umbrella," I thought, "he can't possibly screw it up") to save on shipping. To cut a long story short, he decided to leave it with a friend to ship back here (-.-'''') and when the friend took it to the post office they refused to accept it because of its dimensions.

I'm thinking it probably just wasn't packaged right, and I really don't want to wait till someone else I know makes a trip to Japan to get the parasol (especially since it seems he's gotten me a whitexpink one despite my instructions, moar -.-''''), so if you could help me out, that would be lovely. Alternatively, if you've sold umbrellas before, how do you package them?

Thanks so much for your help. And also for reading my sob story.
