Sad to hear the good people at Timbernation had a fire (and no insurance).

Packing & Shipping Large/Heavy Speakers
I shipped a set of Kanta II to Florida from Missouri. I shipped them standing up on a pallet. We shrink wrapped them with Lots of wrap. They got there fine. If you do this use Lots & lots of wrap.
