I think the best one I ever saw was an  LA36 at our Heathrow warehouse.
I worked for the Terminals Product Line and one of my jobs was to go 
with the insurance man
to look at damaged in transit claims.

LA36's were shipped screwed to something like a half sized pallet,
Then a cardboard box with no top or bottom over that and finally a lid  
on top
Then the usual strapping holding lid and box to the pallet.

They would be unloaded off the plane by fork lift truck.
They had managed to get one fork through the cardboard outer,
then through the back of the steel plinth, the two circuit boards inside,
the front of the plinth and then the other side of the box.

I was told that the loss adjuster (who took photos for reference)
  had that picture on his wall for years.
