I shipped a U30 across the UK ad found that casing is not as solid as  
it looks. The metal chassis is made like a Volvo, but the outer  
plastic bezels and the side door are vulnerable to losing corners if  
they move in transit. My customer sent me apicture of the U30 when it  
was unpacked, and despite me packing itin a bout 2 inches of  
polystyrene foam all round, they had managed to drop it I think and  
snapped the top corner off the side panel - about an inch or so  
radius off the top rear. Never underestimate the ingenuity of  
carriers when it comes to finding ways to break your goods!
