Shipping a Desktop via Air Freight

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm moving back to Singapore in the coming weeks and am planning on taking 3 systems, the first system (the main one I am concerned about) is my sig rig, then the server I have built and finally my HTPC gaming rig.

How should I go about packaging everything if I do not have the original boxes? This shipping company that I am using is well regarded among the chinese in China.

I remove my GPUs and anything heavy that is not literally bolted down and ship them separately. I pack the inside of the case with packaging material/towels to make sure nothing can move much and the outside of the case with many layers of bubblewrap to protect the case itself. Same with the GPUs on the bubble wrap.

I'd use a corrugated box with some sort of protection like foam or bubble wrap. Make sure there's not a lot of room for the computer to move around.Use your judgment based on your case to figure out which parts are at risk of falling off. Ship these seperately

Yeah I'm going to be taking out the heatsink, and the GPU I think since those are pretty likely to damage the CPU in shipping, probably going to bring them in hand carry during the flight. I may purchase a NZXT Switch 810 before leaving... so that might give me a box.
