I've never had that problem before.

What kind of peanuts were you using?

Some of them are pretty soft, but the normal white peanuts... I've shipped
200 pound items bundled in a pile of them with no crushing issues at all.

I wouldn't use them where a lot of weight was focused on a small area, but
then, I wouldn't use formed boxes or styrofoam either.

Usually in those cases, I create a hard wrap around the small area, and then
attach a flat cardboard panel, and fill in the empty space, to distribute the
weight evenly.

Ideally in those cases, you have the original packaging.
