I've got to ship a Dell Poweredge rack server down to Chc but dont have a box/packaging for it....... how has everyone else dealt with this sort of situation ? Is there somewhere in Auckland (prefer Nth Shore) I can obtain a suitable box/packing ?

Road trip!?

I think Flyway might be able to help? Memory isn't that great but I think they had a computer shipping service.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

When do you need it?

I am just setting up a new PowerEdge R420, but will need the box for about a week.

We've got a bunch of IBM boxes from Rack Servers and the polystyrene that came with them if you would like one? We're about to chuck them out but we're on the shore and you're welcome to it if you would like.
