Easy solution. Go to "The Box Shoppe" or some similar place and get a "Dish Pack." The inside dimensions are 18x18x24 (perfect, right?) and the box is double thick - made to carry heavy, fragile stuff. Take the box and the head to your local Kinkos or UPS Store and have them pack it for you. It's worth it to have them pack it as it makes it pretty unlikely that they will deny a claim due to improper packing. Tell them you want bubble wrap only. No peanuts. I recently shipped an SVT. Cost of shipping? Box $7.00, packing $23.00, shipping (via FedEx Home Delivery) and insurance (over $1,000 worth) $45.00. Total, $75.00. It arrived safely and the buyer was amazed at the packing.
