    There are a few right ways in my opinion.. if you expect freight to take care of it then you and seller are taking a risk. Make sure you declare the value of machine and can reasonably prove its worth; otherwise it has a default value of around 2000$ if I recall. I understand it’s not practical to fly out there and crate it yourself. Sometimes the seller can’t manage the crating either.
    Here is an old thread of one of my experiences with freight.

    There plenty of good results from people who have freight deal with crating also. The vertical ship with nylon lashing straps is perhaps the best job I’ve seen. But who is going to do it?

    Another option that a experienced shipper did here; create a pallet that a forklift cannot get under. I realize the photo is one sided, the other side has a crossbeam in the opposite way. This game showed up fully intact with no damage.
