when i got in this same situation a couple years ago i was lucky enough 
to find that someone else at 111 8th had just finished depalletizing a 
bunch of dell servers.  i was able to dumpster dive what i needed.  that 
was lucky.  the other times this has happened i found a cardboard box 
whole seller on 6th ave and bought boxes big enough for my gear and then 
proceeded to pack everything in too much bubblewrap and news papers.  
unfortunately that was back in the day so i don't have any addresses 
anymore that can help :/

not super helpful i know - but maybe that'll spark some creative 
solutions for you ;)


ps: if you don't like the guy doing the receiving be sure to use packing 
peanuts.  dc-ops guys love packing peanuts :p
