    You know what those look like...the big ones about the size of a Medium moving box.

    Anyone ship one of those before with a 4x5 monorail inside it?

    I will be selling my Cambo SC and wanted to know a good way of shipping those with the case. Place in another box? Ship the container the way it is?

    Ship it in another box with packaging peanuts around it.

    David's right. I was scared of the cost to ship mine, but at about 35 lbs. it only cost about $34. I thought it would be more. I put it in a slightly larger box with some bubble wrap lining it.

    Right on, I'll probably put bubble wrap inside + peanuts then put that in another box.
    I'll put an ad tonight (4 months til my Chamonix!)
