Yup.  I have shipped maybe 10 Teletypes in my day, once you remove the
chassis from the pedestal it's just a matter of packing properly.
Also be sure to lock the carriage.

BIG NOTE:  If the pedestal has a lot of electronics in it, and they're
connected to the ucc-6 (power supply), be sure to make note of what
was connected to what.  It may not be easy to separate the pedestal if
there are a lot of connections for modem, etc. in there.  Take a lot
of pictures and label everything.

If there is any way you can go get it yourself, In the long run it
might be worth the trouble.
