I am searching for some boxes to ship 3 or more rifles.
Have tried all the places listed in our phone book that sell shipping containers with no luck.
Any Ideas?? Thanks

UPS Stores have them for about $6-7 for a 6x6x50. Better to buy in bulk, but sometimes that's not practical.

Go to a building site and look in the dumpsters, last time I needed some, the flourscent lite boxes worked perfectly, and the scrap carpet pad was also useful. The price was the best part, FREE

You could buy some of the hard gun cases. If the rifle is valuable, it will be beter protected. They are not that costly as they run 10/12 dollars and can be used later also.

I'd go with ULINE or cpw's suggestion . Ive used Uline inthe past and bought their smallest lot and they come in handy Bones dimensions will handle any normal non scoped rifle.

The UPS stores here have Golf Club boxes. Work OK for some rifles, inserted at a diagonal, just need more filler.

Thank you for the tip about Uline. I just placed an order.

The boxes are 8 x 4 x 52, so the total volume is 1664 cubic inches. This is good news if you use the USPS Priority Mail to ship, since their threshold for kicking you into the higher rates for oversized parcels is 1728 inches.

About $3.25 per box, including shipping to me (VA). Great deal.

They are sturdy boxes as well. I ship rifles overstuffed with bubble wrap and these boxes can take it. If you are shipping short rifles, you will have to find some material to fill it up, or cut it down a bit.

The best place I have found to get rifle boxes is by purchasing more rifles.

:D

<nodding> That is where all of mine have originated ... I probably have about 4 dozen "rifle" boxes carefully stored downstairs that were in good enough condition to reuse.
