Default Best method for packing?

I'm looking for the safest way to package my old setup for shipping, in which I'm planning on leaving in contact in the motherboard (memory, CPU & CPU heatsink, GPU, and all obviously in the motherboard). I was thinking of throwing it in a large anti-static bag, and then putting a lot of bubble wrap around it. Would this endure shipping, and not be damaged during shipment?

Or what would be the best way to go about it?

Make sure you have a strong box and a thick layer of peanuts and/or foam. Most large packages get kicked when they are to lazy to pick them up.

A lot of peanuts and cushioning. You wouldn't want your parts to be banging on the ground or something when it's being shipped.
