Looking for suggestions on how to ship fully configured server racks.

I need to build several server racks, install all of the UPS/Switch/KVM/Servers that will go in them, and then SHIP the fully configured and installed rack as a single unit to the destination data center.

Any ideas on how to go about this?  I'm guessing it will take a custom shipper that specializes in this kind of thing.  Along with a ton of insurance...

Has anyone done this before that might be able to lend some advice from the school of hard knocks?
