I have shipped a couple of props so I am not an expert by any means. The easy way is to find a Package Depot, Mailboxes Etc or similar outfit that does packaging. Put the prop in a sturdy box, wrap it in bubble wrap and fill the box with styrofoam peanuts, wadded paper or other filler. Cost for this is small if you have it done. Insure the prop for what it is worth to you. Insurance is not expensive, replacing a prop is. Hope this helps. Maybe others with more experience can offer more.
