The item needs to be tight inside the box or crate. If you can tip the box and hear the item sliding within, damage is likely.

Don't cut corners and cut cost on packaging materials. You will be disappointed when the package arrives at its destination.
Exactly. This is much more important than choosing a shipping company.
