I can surely second that caution - if you want it sent, unwrapped,in a
single-wall el-cheapo, half-taped cardboard box 3/4 filled with styrofoam
peanuts - well, go ahead.
And as for what the local "UPS Store" wants for this 'service' (not to
mention then handing it over to the UPS Gorilla Team) - I'd just as soon
take a half-hour and do the packing myself. Pretty much the same can be
said for "FedEx/Kinkos" - if you can find one that will actually offer
pack - ship.
Of course, to give credit where due - they are not supposed to be expert
electronic packers. But, still - either do it properly yourself
or locate a packing / crating / shipping service that can handle delicate
radio stuff. If I knew a nation-wide place, I'd list the name, but I
always pack my own shipments - and I've sent fairly big Stuff all over the
