- millennia eq wrapped in 2 layers of thinnest bubblewrap, loosely packed with insufficient peanuts (which shifted) in a box not much larger than the eq - which cost me $40 on top of the FedEx fee
I can only say that if you are the shipper - do the right thing and pack it yourself, preferably double boxed, with generous layers of the larger bubblewrap around the unit - get stryofoam end pieces to fit on the rack ears, and then put that box inside a larger box, surrounded by peanuts...
this may seem like overkill to some, but trust me - anyone who respects both the expensive, fragile nature of pro equipment, and the person who will ultimately be paying for it all - your buyer - will agree that this is the only way to go.
Try to "float" the gear inside the box by using hard foam blocks wedged onto the corners. Then fill in the 6 cavities around the gear with more hard foam. You may be able to purchase original packaging material from the manufacturer.
