I seen your blogs about selem.. DON"T trust baggage guys. I watched personally deck apes throw 4000$ of my equipment onto the top on a luggage cart staked eight feet in the air. Luckily Me and my bf wrapped it three times with bubble pack . only minor damage and had to readjustments were necessary.
you may have to hire a carpenter to make your crates. thats what I did for the rest of my props to keep them from being damaged. Do ship ahead and rent a pickup if you are bringing out the big guns
