Buy a thick, strong cardboard box. Fill it 1/3 to 1/2 full with peanuts. Wrap the head with plenty of bubble wrap, and then place it in the box. Fill the rest of the box with peanuts and call it a day.

Wood pallet (make sure it's rated for the weight), wrap it in thick plastic, put a box over it, put a bunch of packing material in there, like peanuts or those foam block things. Tape it up. I posted on your build thread a youtube video that shows how it's done by a random shop that builds V8's.

Im sure there's other ways, like a crate or something.

Pretty much. There isn't a need to use a wood pallet if you're just shipping a head. If you were shipping a block or complete engine, yeah. A head can be shipped easily without a pallet.

If you go to the UPS store, they can package ANYTHING for you that you might need to ship and they know how it's done so I trust them.

Go overboard, the last thing we want is for a head to arrive damaged. Can't wait to get started on it for you :)

Btw. There's no visible
Damage to it by my view... Looks like it was the shortblock only that wasn't having if, the holes are humongous, I think I'm lucky. I got pics scattered all threw my build thread if anyone wants to see some damage 

Seriously though, for claim purposes, snap even a smartphone image of the packaging materials and the finished box. UPS, FEDEX, and USPS, have a way of sodomizing boxes that would seem vulgar to the average bear. It seams the heavier it is, the harder they fuck it. If it arrives damaged call them out, make sure to get insurance on it, and fuck them over. Lord knows they have gotten away with murder with Amazon on my orders.
