    Sold my fender flares on here to a member and I'm having a hell of a time finding a box to fit the damn things in. I've been to staples, UPS pack n ship and lowes. I bought a TV Moving box from lowes and they still wont fit. I need something a minimum up 48" wide, 36" tall and 10-12" wide.

    I thought for sure I kept the original box but apparently not. Someone help me out so I can get this guy his flares!

    you just have to get creative with some cardboard, a box cutter & either a glue gun or tape.

    What I tend to do is buy a box that fits for the largest dimension you need and then just cut to size. To fold, use a straightedge or something... you save a ton of money on shipping if you get the box down to the bare minimum size you need, especially for something light like fender flares... you're going to be paying for dimensional weight rather than actual.

    Also, check with your local packaging store, mine sells cardboard in 8'x4' sheets for $15 bucks or something - great for packing weird sized stuff

    Ask the peeps at lowes to get you a fridge box or something out of the receiving area. Buy some tape and giddyup

    Oversized bicycle box. Some shops will give them to you for free. Get two of them if you can.
