David:
    I am not offended. The fact is, I ship like this all over the world and 
never a problem for the last 10 years. By the way, the transformer weighs 
less than the 40 pounds. Two boxes, two layers of foam and bolted down. Pure 
and simple, total neglect on FedEx's part.

Gary, did not mean to be offensive nor cynical.

Packing a heavy item in a cardboard box is risky unless you are using stiff
cardboard and not that insulation material.  Just as an example, try
dropping a brick on a sheet of styrofoam and you will certainly leave a
dent.  My son is a contractor and uses this stuff all the time as exterior
insulation material.  He tells me that one would be better off using stiff
cardboard that is folded to a thickness of 1 inch or more.

Thanks
