Just a word of caution on shipping tanks. I sent my SS tank back east for rust removal and repair via UPS. I thought i packed it securely, but when it was returned to me there was a noticible dent on the side of the tank. The repairguy told me later he noticed it upon arrival to him, but thought it was already there. UPS sent two inspectors over a period of 8 months on a follow up claim (they lost the first claim paperwork) They denied me for not having "proper" packing materials. However, in the long run I persisted with photographs of the box, (thank God i kept it) the labeling, etc. I did insure the tank so eventually UPS paid the claim.
The OE box is good and find out what they mean by "proper" packing material. Just want to save you a potential headache.
Also, bare in mind shipping to Canada via USPS may require customs fees, etc. Mark your container as a gift on any paperwork.
