My brother bought a plane from someone in texas and he shipped it in a wooden box that looked like a coffin. I think the time and materials that went into the shipping container were worth more than the plane.

I read in one of these forums that the packaging used to ship aftermarket car and truck parts to bodyshops and such are pretty beefy and can sustain a lot of damage before the contents get wrecked. The boxes from bumpers are supposed to fit a fullsize wing nicely. The post claimed they were free for the asking as they just got tossed into a recycle bin. Never tried but it maybe worth investigating.
