It is typically cheaper to ship something in a smaller box. Most shipping services have an "OVERSIZE" fee that is added if the item is too large. It is always best to use the smallest box as possible, as well as shipping a package that is as light as possible. Check out the website below, there are lots of shipping materials that are offered.

How do you trade your ship to get money on Skullduggery Island?

You can trade your ship "down" to a smaller ship, but only if you were desperate. Larger ships have more cargo space and can pickup more salvage, and in almost every case is preferable to a smaller ship. You only get 25% of the purchase price of any ship when you trade it in, and that is usually for a larger one.
