Around here, bike shops are happy to give you a bike box. They cost them money to throw away, so you are helping them out. Since every bike coming to them is in a box, a large bike shop is inundated with boxes.
When I need a bike box, I always try to grab two. One is used for the shipping, and I cut up the other one for additional bracing material and whatever.
