Take the extra time to build wooden boxes out of 3/4 pylwood or something similar. Most shipping companies beat the sh*t out of everything especially fragile stuff.It doesn't hurt to put a handle on the box either.

27 FOUNTAIN, you are absolutely right! I have a box just as you described. Best part is, now get this, I still have yet to open it!

The nicest box that I've seen, was one that was roughly square (you'll pay alot, but U-haul has 'em) and the prop was bolted to a piece of plywood. Packing peanuts wern't even required.

Maybe put them in a box then in another box that fits tight . Put a peice of cardbord between props and pack lots of news paper so they can't move .
