Bolted to a piece of plywood and put in a strong box size of DRDT. filled with peanuts as full as you can. Then spend the shipping money

Default UPS

UPS has an online only option call Simple Rate. It is flat rate based on the package cubic inches, and max of I think 50 pounds or so. If you go to the UPS store they won't / can't sell you the option. Unlike USPS you use your own box. Recently shipping some relatively heavy stuff it saved me $30 per package (about 1/2 price).
