Help with shipping Coral in the US

Hey everyone, I’m going to post my mother jawbreaker and a few babies for sale at some point and was hoping for some shipping advice if I would have to ship anywhere. Any tips from members who have successfully shipped coral in the past would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you and happy reefing

Here's a link explaining the benefits of shipping corals in 100% humidity, but without significate water. I tried it myself with SPS in a bag, left it in there for a couple of days on the table and it was fine. All you need to do is wrap it loosely in wet paper towel, and place it in a bubble of air.
