How to prep plants for shipping?

I've read a few threads where they offer lots of good advice. Don't wrap in wet paper towels. Blow up the bag. Use a box not a padded envelop. But one thing I haven't found was before any of that, how do you get the plants out of the tank? I have about 200 sq inches of HC grown emersed in eco-complete that I need to sell. Should I pull out the plants and remove the eco-complete which would leave the individual strands kind of loose or should I take a scoop and dig out a clump and hope the bouncing substrate doesn't kill the plants before they arrive?

edit: oops. Meant to post in general. Can somebody move this?
