Default Shipping and Packaging

I was wondering if anyone had any advice or guides or information for shipping a PC via UPS, FedEx, USPS. This relates more to packaging the PC so it isnt damaged upon arrival. The problem is I dont have the option of indivudaly packing each piece so I'm talking about shipping a whole PC in a box. Any help or advice is appriciated.

I wouln't recommend everything in one box ... :/.

Otherwise you have to use lots of styrofoam .

I would put the whole pc in a box for computer cases. Best is to add some more styrofoam to the sides (just to play safe, you never know what they to with your stuff)

If you want the PC to arrive safely without any damage; go to your local UPS depot and have the PC packed there. It will cost you around $80 + shipping cost, with one exception which is the mounted aftermarket HSF that may not survive staying on the board.
