How to Pack and Ship Server Racks
Servers are often valuable and require professional packing to safely ship. This usually means foam-in-place and double boxing. After all, you don’t want a server to be damaged while in transit. Server racks alone are large and bulky, but they aren’t as fragile, meaning we can prepare them differently.
Server racks are heavy and awkward, which is why it’s a job for the folks who have experience with freight shipping. Also, if you’re not relocating the entire office, it is usually not worth it to hire full-service movers.
