I just shipped a rather large unit to switzerland. Had it packed by The 
Store actually (as they should know what they do right?). I rather pay 
few extra bucks to get it packed right and then if there is any 
thing going on I can say they packed it. So actually the rather big 
of course got damaged shipping to switzerland. But no physical damage
to the outside of the box. Just the long transport has set a part on the
mainboard loose that scratched up the board a bit and cut the connection
to a memory slot. Sucks....
