I've shipped boards UPS and Fed EX before. Generally board alone runs $25-$35 to ship, depending on location. Add in bindings (which for packaging purposes are typically easier to pack separate) and you've got an additional $10-$20. As for packing, I've just saved packaging from boards I've bought online (for myself and others) and used that, but worst case is the board can be packed with a large sheet of cardboard folded into an "envelope" of sorts. Bindings just ship in original box or something similar sized.
