I ordered a surplus CRT in 2011. The seller got an appropriately sized box, and used spray foam to cushion it. While I do feel the package was appropriately secure, and probably efficient for its size (it's a 19"), holy hell that was a mess. There there foam pieces everywhere.
I had to break the foam apart of course to remove the monitor, it was entombed in there.
I mean, it did work. Nothing was broken or scratched. Could be the best solution, I don't know.
