35mm Film - Is it good? How to ship?

I have 14 rolls of film (mix of black and white and color) that I got along with a camera bag at a yard sale.  All the film is in the little plastic canisters and the end of the film is sticking out of each of them and from my memories of the film days, that means it's not used yet and ready to load in the camera.  Please confirm I'm thinking correctly.

Also, how do you ship film these days?  Can you just pack it in a cardboard box and it'll make it there safely (not damage by x-rays or whatever)?

Finally, since all the film appears to be in like new condition (the plastic canisters and the roll of film inside) and since it was stored inside a closed camera bag, I assume the film is still good/ok to use?

I'd like to sell it because I won't be using it but I want to be as sure as I can that the film is still good before I sell it to someone.
