I doubt if it would add much value to a set. People tend to buy used sets to build, rather than as a collectable / investment, so box is not always that big a deal.
I don't have the set, but if I did have it boxless, I certainly wouldn't pay £40 for the box.
I wouldn't bother with ebay. You will get people thinking it is for the complete set, even if you show just a picture of an empty box and say it is an empty box.
I've sold a few from used SW sets I've bought for parts, etc, but normally get five quid or so for them. The other thing is that the larger ones are a pain to ship - without folding much bigger than international small packet size which means it costs more to ship outside UK than the value of the thing to start with.
Any advice as what's the best way to ship it? I asked the buyer if he prefers the box to be shipped flattened or inside another box. For the first option I'd bubble wrap it and then add brown shipping paper and write Fragile/Do not bend.
For the other options... I'm going to need to find a very big box.. Would air bags suffice? It is the first time I am shipping an empty box... (box-ception! :D) It is going within the UK.
