I like to use extruded polystyrene insulation panels. Here it's
available from most home improvement stores in 8' x 2' or 4' sizes and
up to 2" thick. Basically score-and-snap and very tough stuff--not
given to making "crumbs" either. I build a "box within a box" for heavy
items and firmly brace whatever I'm sending so that neither it, nor any
component parts can move in transit. Double-walled corrugated
cardboard, as mentioned reinforced, if necessary by 1/4" plywood.
I suspect that polyiso insulation board would work as well, but I've
never tried it.
