Don't cheap out on the packing, even if they want it try and save a little on postage.
And don't over insure, the final value on the customs form can affect any customs charges for the receiver. I got one recently, cost me half of the price of the gun again because it was insured for about twice than it was worth.
Other than a few more minutes at the post office it shouldn't be a big deal.
