All I can add is to take the ink cartridge out and seal it in a Ziploc bag before moving the printer.

Do you have to original packaging?

Ok Use a dish barrel, Line the bottom of the box with plenty of paper. most towers will fit inside this box on it's side. stuff as much paper as you can fit around corners of the pc.

If you have the older monitor, not an LCD! you can add more paper on top on your computer and place it tube down. the reason for this is the bottoms of these monitors have been known to break off during transit. now fille in some more paper and all your other accesories should fit inside this one carton.

If you have an LDC monitor, add more paper to the carton place the monitor upright inside the box. so the screen is facing one of the sides of the carton about one inch off the side fill in with paper inbetween the screen and the side of the carton.

printers, Take out the ink like stated above me. ziplock bags work wonders. depending on the size of the printer get a carton that it will fit into. usually they fit into a 3.0 carton.

The only reason I suggest dish cartons over the tall 4.5 carton is the thickness of the carton.
