Hi all, looking for some suggestions for packaging and shipping a rather expensive projector to Auckland for a service repair.

The situation is that I live in Wellington and have a new Panasonic projector that has a fault and the only Panasonic service location is in Auckland so I have to ship it up there. To make matters worse I no longer have the original packaging so need to work out the best way to pack it.

Any suggestions?

I've used Pack Send for things like this before, you can either ship through them or just buy the correct size boxes/packing from them. Or you could try someone who does AV gear in the area and see if they have a similar size box going.

Yeah just found them online, their foam packing looks like a good option and their gold service offers cover against damage which is something I definitely need.
