My company is transferring me across the country. They are paying for professional movers to come pack everything up and move it via truck. I keep my Kronos at home and don't want to spend $300 for a hard case that I'll use only once.

I was thinking of mummifying it with thick bubble wrap and a bunch of tape, and placing a packet of dessicant inside. I will also mark with "fragile, do not stack".

Do you guys think that will be sufficient protection?

are you kidding me ? I would never let any movers touch my Kronos.

If it were my Kronos, I would move it myself via car. This assumes you making the drive. If not, you would have to invest in the hard case. If your co is paying for the move, I would have them pay for the case.

I keep all the original boxes, so it is not a problem for me.

I had my original box. I used professional movers too, and with several precious keyboards I had to make a choice as to which ones I carried in the car with me.
I decided to let the movers take my Kronos88, and being in the original box, there was no problem at all. Unless you have the original packing, I'd at least put it in some sort of rigid cardboard carton as well as wrapping it in bubble wrap...that is if you can't go out and buy a hard case for it.
It would be also worth sculpting some polystyrene end caps like the original, and especially something similar to cover the display to reduce pressure there.
I think if you do all that, it should be as good as the original packing.

Thanks for the replies! I realized that, since they are shipping my car, I will just bubble-wrap the Kronos and put it inside the car Smile

As badly beat up as my steel reinforced gator hard case was, with my Korg triton extreme, i will never trust movers with anything less than a hard case like i had. The case took some damage but the Korg 88 was fine, and that was with added blanket and styrofoam padding in the case and around the Keyboard.

I would at least build a shipping crate for it out of plywood and put it in there with blankets and bubble wrap and styrofoam padding. I think with movers, they offer the option to crate your items for you, with standard wooden shipping crates. International shippers do that if not overland movers.
