Take the tail off. Ship the main frame and tail in separate boxes and ship via USPS Priority Mail. That's the cheapest route that I've found.

Pull the boom and gear and maybe even the head. Find a big box.

One thing I have done on the last few machines I sold was to buy a big sheet of pink foam. Cut a few pieces of it to fit tightly in the box. Then cut it out as needed to place the frames/gear/head in the foam. The parts of the machine are basicaly captivated in the foam. It is kind of a PITA, but I've never had damage when packaged this way, and the buyers always commented on how well it was packed. It makes the box much stronger than normal also. They will have to try alot harder to destroy in in shipping. The foam was not cheap, but not having to deal with an insurance claim was well worth the cost.

p.s, you could also just pull the machine apart and bubble wrap the assemblies. That works well also, and is less work in the long run.

I normally go to U-Hail and by a box big enough to fit the tail boom. Then I wrap everything in bubble wrap and fill with newspaper.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Tail and skids off have worked great for me. Foam or peanuts should be fine but make sure it's packed in there pretty tight and things can't move around.
