Go to your local UPS store and get help. The only time I did it I had the boxes from the new sharkskinz I just purchased....it was easy then, but I was amazed at the size of the boxes....UPS has everything you need!

Myself and another member here shipped our plastics (body trade) via UPS. I got the big box from U-Haul. It cost just about $90 including insurance for $1500.

I cleaned and waxed the parts, then wrapped them in cling wrap. Then put a few inches of popcorn cushion on the bottom of the box, put the parts in and filled the voids with the popcorn stuff.
it worked out pretty well.

i shipped mine in a large box w/ bubble wrap and newspaper.
i hate the peanuts when i open a box w/ it, so i dont send that stuff to anyone.

it cost me about 115 insured via UPS ground.

One big box with everything spaced out between bubble wrap worked best for me.
I disagree with placing fragile stickers all over though. Everytime I do that at work they seem to treat it like crap. Usually the corners get dented so keep parts away from corners.
