I shipped a PC that i sold on ebay to somone... I have never shipped a computer before.... So i went out and bought a big cardboard box. Wrapped the comptuer in foam. Then put crumpled newspaper all around to fill in the spots so it would not shift around. Shipped it USPS and insured it for $250... The guy got it, and it was not booting; hes not too computer savvy to figure out what exactly was wrong with it. He took it to file for insurance.. they looked at it for 10 minutes, then gave him the sheet to mail in and whatnot. They told him that it wasnt a great packing job though.... Here are the pictures he took. The box was new when i shipped it, and the comptuer was in great cosmetic condition. Thanks!
