Thought this was an interesting read to share for others who ship bikes.

All this company did was print an LCD TV on the front of their box and shipping damage dropped by over 75%.

Bike manufacturer sees huge reduction in delivery damage by printing TV on the box - Cycling Weekly

Had a big box store resend a 42' Sony Bravia due to shipping damage. 4 times! Fifth time's a charm. I don't know how they make money on this.
