Just copied this from one of my previous posts. Too add.....Just bubble wrap the outside of the orignal box first box first. Than build the crate quite snug around it.

I had my 2.7s sent from NY to Europe and there was no way I was going to take the damage arrival risk as the expense would have been too great. Re-claiming the insurance is almost always a hassle with these shipping companies. Remember also that the Shipping monkies don't care about your goods as they are in a hurry to finish thier day. Therefore our things are thrown around like hot potatoes.

In the future I will give you all some friendly inmate on hand advice. The original box s__ks for shipping and you can quote me. Have them crated around the box and insist if you can. I had mine delivered to a friend who did this for me with the corresponing dimensions with bubble or cartron between the box and the plywood. Also use screws if possible as opening them is a snap and you can re-use it later if you have to ship them. It cost me a bit more for wood and raised the weight by 30 kilos but I slept well at night before they arrived. I knew I made the right decision when the truck arrived and saw the way he threw the crate in the truck (blap, blop, bang). Imagine what happened before that. I was 200% sure they would have not arrived safe.

Than again the best is always a self-pickup if possible.

Good luck and I hope your jammin soon. Keep us posted as to the result.
