I would suggest keeper’s experience over handling in this case. Bagging and moving a snake is one thing. Properly keeping and caring for it is another. Also, if I myself do not feel too comfortable with a sale I just don’t sell. Bare in mind that although the sale may be accompanied by a consent form the liability is not completely wavered. I always consider any animal possessing a venom delivery system as having the potential to being lethal as the victim’s body may have a violent reaction (allergy) developing into anaphylaxis.
