I’m gonna be transporting my PC soon to another location. I’m transporting it through a Car in a Ship, I need help on how to safely transport it.
If you have the original box, use the original box. Otherwise just stick it in the backseat of your car behind the drivers seat where the passenger would put their feet, and put a bag of towels or clothing underneath it to act as a shock absorber. If you're not going a far distance, I wouldn't worry that much.
If you're travelling hundreds of miles, then yes, protect and cover the computer. You don't need to remove anything from the inside, but if you have a heavy aftermarket cooler or gpu in the system you might want to remove those and put them in boxes. If you have a liquid cooler... drain the liquid, because you don't want it to leak during shipping.
Historically, any time you ship a computer, you want to avoid the possibility of someone dropping it, which is why desktops typically ship with 2-3" of foam or cardboard inside the box. If you like to fly over speed bumps and take turns fast, that will apply forces to the inside of the computer that it was not designed to take. Hence you wrap the computer in a towel or blanket and use clothing in a bag to prevent it from bouncing off anything solid in the car. It's better for it to be slightly firm, wedged between the drivers seat and the rear passenger seat than it is to be sitting on the seat and allowed to slide.
Failing that, strap it in like it was a baby seat using the seat belt anchors. I won't explain how to do this, just that it's an option, and you still need to be careful driving as if you get hit, your computer is probably 20 lbs and will take your head off if you get in a collision if not secured.
One of my clients in the 90's shipped a server out of the country, and it came back a month later with massive damage to the chassis because it had literately been dropped from the plane. That's basically the worst case scenario, where someone slips and it falls far enough to break everything inside it.
