Rack shipping

I have a potential buyer in CA for my SD rack- basket, rear support, cross bars. Need to get it from Denver to CA. Not crated and I'm not able to build a crate for it.

Thoughts? Ideas? Thinking about Greyhound but not too sure how I'd get it to the bus station.

I'll be visiting my family that live in Arvada for a week. I get in late on Friday, but I'll have my truck there and can give you a hand building a crate or strapping it to a pallet and dropping it off.

When I got one, I had it tossed inside a enclosed car transporter loose. They typically have a storage section. Made it easy to ship

I made a cardboard box when I sold mine, from about 8 - 12 computer boxes.
I used coat hangers to wire the smaller parts steady inside the basket, laid out a rough box form on the ground and taped the joints up. Made the up folds and them made the lid, taping the sections together as I put each section together. Then to firm it all up since there is no way the tape would hold for very long, I wrapped the hell out of the entire thing with the clear shipping wrap and it was snug and secure for shipping.
