Boxes for mailing rack gear

Post by Rufer » Sun Dec 30, 2012 10:35 am

I'm about to unload a bunch of stuff. What size boxes do you all recommend for shipping 1U and 2U rack equipment. Does anyone have any recommendations for inexpensive decent boxes?

Thanks.

Xpedex stores, or uline.com, and whoever your local wholesaler is - in Denver I use Katzke.

Usually substantially less expensive in whatever qty forms a bundle(dozen or so).

As close to these dimensions:

24" long X 16" to 24" wide x 6" to 8" tall, for the padding.

Cheers.
Howling at the neighbors. Hoping they have more mic cables.

These two answers were just what I was looking for. Thanks!

Though I don't see where I can buy any less than 25 boxes from the online outlets Mr. The Scum recommended. I am only looking for around 10 or so. I might have to stick with Staples or the like unless anyone has any other ideas.

www.usps.com
has 24x3x12" flat rate "gameboard" boxes that ship anywhere in the USA for $15.45. The boxes are free, the shipping is not. They are prefect for a dbx 1 RU comp as an example.
