    I have been successful for a long time using Fed Ex ground and the properly sized box. I use a double walled box that is purchased at a packing supply company. It is 24 X 24 X18" and allows for shipping of most decks and those that are near 80 pounds should have a lot of good packing as in the polyester like foam not peanuts or other low grade packing materials. If you do not spend the money to get good packing materials then it is not the shippers fault that a unit is damaged as they go through a lot of movement. If you insure it for $5000 then it will go into the hi value line and not onto any sloppy conveyors. High value items are hand carried from point to point. The Exciters I got at Moody were without a scratch but they were $14,000 each. They had that Polyester foam in them which is where I get that idea. It compresses and returns where styrofoam crushes and stays that way.

    I do in multiple 250 foot rolls and I use the 1/2 stuff. Three layers around larger items seems to be a good start I have found.
