Default Need help on finding boxes...

Ok, I am gonna be shipping my SC to boosty here shortly, and I need help on where I can get very thick cardboard boxes. I am wanting to put the SC inside a box wrapped in towels and bubble wrap, tape it up, then put that box inside another box (yes I am a worry wart and fear damage). So does anyone know where I can find thick boxes? I do have office stores like Officemax, Staples, etc. Any of them carry them? Thx.

Even the ones at staples etc. are not that strong. Goold luck finding a good box. If I think of anything I will post it here.

Grocery stores (banana boxes are very sturdy)

Any store.. just double up on the cardboard and it'* thicker.

Or hit up the post office... FREE boxes!

Both of the above posts are a good idea. I would hit the grocery stores first

Well, looking back on your two fairly recent threads about this, you mentioned you could get "very thick" boxes from your dad'* work.

Did you try that first?

He wasn't able to get any, his boss wouldn't allow it. Plus they are very big.

Wrap the */C in a big plastic bag, put that in a box filled with packing peanuts (or shredded newspaper), then pack that into a bigger box also filled with packing peanuts/newspaper.
