No problem with a used single weight box if the box is not damaged.   That's what I use to ship my fans but most of my boxes are new.   It's the packing material plus the lack of making sure the fan is restrained in the box that was unacceptable.

Look what I found in my files Steven.  Five years ago I sold and shipped this 77546.   Packing materials are mostly scrounged and selected from dumpsters, etc. and used to their best advantage.   On top of the last photo was more padding.  When closed up the fan was totally immobilized against any movement in any direction.   Over 100 fans I have shipped this way with no damage.
