Shipping Directions: You may have kept your original computer box. If it contains at least 4 inches of foam from the computer to its outside walls you can use that box to ship your computer here. Second choice is, if your computer will fit inside your original monitor box. Leave the original syrofoam insert in the bottom of the box for stablility and place your computer on some form of sponge rubber about 2 inches (cheap carpet matting is great) and surround the sides and top with large bubble bubble wrap or sponge rubber. Tape all edges of the outside box so it will not be able to twist or bend. When you are done, the box should be able to withstand the 6 foot drops that UPS or Fedex might be giving to it.
