Hi,
im having a hard time finding cardboard boxes for shipping xboxes in.
(its a little premature as i dont even have the xboxes to ship letalone any one to buy)

Any way im trying to get all i can ready for the eventuality of me posting things via courier, and i cant find cheap boxes.
I dont want to be sending them out in old boxes that were for other things.
and the cheapest i can find so far are here: http://www.boxandseal.co.uk/

Im in the uk and apparantly unlike the us we dont have free boxes at post offices for sending stuff in.
Any help would be appretiated as i need to keep costs as low as possible or it will not be a relistic venture for me to attempt, which is going to get me in trouble as i have already spent quite a lot of on hard drives and xboxes lol.

Tried http://www.mad4boxes.co.uk/ ?

I know my dad bought tons of boxes from there when him and my mother were moving house. He said they were very reasonably priced.

Just realised I'm gonna need to look into some boxes for shipping out 360's myself! >_<

thnx, I think boxandseal will be better for my needs though, they seem to do less bulk buy deals.
Wifes already prety mad at me for filling the house with xboxes. I think she would kill me if i orderd 25 boxes and only needed 3-5 lol.

Yeah, my g/f isn't very happy that I've got 4 XBoxes and 2 PS3's downstairs >_>

(and those are ones to fix/sell, not counting my personal ones!)

Yeah I always hated getting stuff in the mail like that. I would go pick it up from the post office and get all excited thinking someone sent me a case of Jack Daniel's. Then I open the box and am like damn its only that xbox I ordered.
