I scored about a dozen of the tall plastic milk-crate like things that bottle water is delivered in. They were sitting in a pile of junk on the curb down the block from my house. They are designed to fit a carboy perfectly. I don;t even take the carboys out to clean them - the whole shebang gets cleaned and sanitized. I've heard too many stories of carboys breaking because of a gentle bump during cleaning. As my brewing increases (hopefully) I'll add to my collection with Better Bottles, but these thing do the trick for me for now. The built in handles are designed to allow your hands to clear the bottle and make for some relatively easy moving.
