Boxes To Ship Skis

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
When you guys ship skis where do you purchase the boxes from?

The UPS store charges like $15 for a box.

I snag 'em from my ski shop, or I just make them out of a big cardboard box.

But check uline.com if you want to buy them.

And get ready for the heartaches of ebay.

I have sold stuff before so I know all the ins and outs.

I would sell the skis to people from this board but they know how much I spent on the skis so that would piss people off if I try to charge a certain amount.

Plus I might end up keeping a pair or two.

I assume the Legend 8000s in a 178 would be too long for me at 5'8" 165 pounds.

Get ya some from the streets---preferrably not to stanky! One displaced - ah - street person-- will getya enough to ship a few pairs!

Maybe. But the 172 would be perfect for you, IMO.

Dumpster dive behind the ski shops.

I purchase two smaller boxes and cram the end of one slightly inside the end of the other to make one long box. A little tape around the middle to secure it and you're set. Go to a specialty box store if that doesn't make sense (I'm an accountant and have trouble putting a visual to something like this).

Legend 8k

When I called Galyan's at the Northshore Mall yesterday any they said they got cleaned out of the Legend 8000's I knew It had to be you.

Good score Amigo!!

You can get the "tube" boxes from USPS and Fedex for free. I've had to be creative and use two and tape for wider skis.

Get some big boxes from other stuff, furniture, tv, etc..., and cut and tape them to fit skis.
