I shipped two 8-71's to the west coast last winter in rubbermaid containers.

Cut a pice of wood to mount the blowers on, then packed the chit out of them so they couldn't move!

I have two cases, one is a little nicer then the other and even has wheels. Both blowers would fit in the nice one and the other stuff can go in the other.
