–gina 6/13/2014 9:18:52 AM

"There is full overlap for 2 of the 4 flaps."

–Ronald 6/17/2014 10:45:46 AM

How the heck do you fold/put this box together? i agree with Maya directions are no good

–carolyn 6/17/2014 7:00:24 AM

"If you are using 1 mirror box: Begin at the bottom of the box by folding the small flaps in, then fold one large flap on top of the other and tape. Flip the box over, place your item in the box and fold the top small flaps in, then fold one large flap on top of the other and tape. When using 2 mirror boxes together: Secure the bottoms of 2 mirror boxes as stated in the single box instructions. Leave the flap tabs on the top of the boxes in tact and none of the flaps folded in. Press along the dotted lines on both sides of one of the boxes (the one that will be sliding inside the outer box) which will allow it to slide more easily into the other box. Once you have them telescoped, tape securely."

–Ronald 6/18/2014 3:08:05 PM

Are these picture boxes wax-coated for better water deflection?

–MoBra 7/23/2014 5:06:25 PM

"No, this box is not wax-coated. You could possibly wrap the sealed box with U-Haul stretch wrap for added protection."

–Ronald 7/24/2014 10:04:09 AM

How does the bottom assemble? I read directions, but nothing folds easily or fits together nicely. I have read the instructions given for this question previously, and it still does not work. Irritated!

–Meems 7/31/2014 6:56:23 AM

Please call 1.866.277.6855. Thanks.

How do I assemble it was with two boxes??

–ra1103@hotmail.com 8/4/2014 3:20:28 PM

Our program manager for boxes and moving supplies writes: "Begin at the top end of the first box by folding the small flaps in, then fold one large flap on top of the other and tape. Move on to the 2nd box and press along the dotted lines on the left and right sides until there is an indent or break in the cardboard. Without cutting the flap lock tabs on the bottom end of the first box, and by squeezing the second box sides so they intent, slide the second box into the open (bottom) end of the 1st box. Slide your item(s) in the box, then on the open end of the 2nd box, fold the small flaps in, fold one large flap on top of the other and tape. Secure the middle portion where the 2nd box telescopes into the 1st box with tape."

–Ronald 8/6/2014 2:59:55 PM

Is this box study enough to ship or just to move around town?

–An 9/7/2014 12:43:37 AM

Our moving supplies manager writes: ... "The size of the box meets requirements to ship. If you are planning to ship something fragile, protect it extremely well."

–Ronald 9/15/2014 8:54:43 AM

How should one fold Mirror Box to hold 2 paintings?

–Tom Jones 9/18/2014 5:30:38 PM

"It depends on the size of each painting. If together they are larger than what one Mirror Box can accommodate, take a look at our Large Mirror Box (part number LMB). If both paintings are larger than what the MB and LMB can accommodate, please read the answer to the above question, "How do I assemble it with two boxes??"" It will help you understand how to use 2 Mirror Boxes for very large items."

–Ronald 9/19/2014 10:55:25 AM

can this box be telescoped with another to fit a 39 x 33 picture framed?

–Jude 9/30/2014 11:48:16 AM

If the "39" is the width, I would say no. If the "39" is the height, I would say you can most likely make that work. Thanks. rm

–Ronald 9/30/2014 12:09:29 PM

Can these boxes be used for flat screen TVs

–Pearl 11/16/2014 9:01:29 AM

We suggest this box not be used for flat screen TV's.

DO YOU HAVE A PRE-FOLDED BOX FOR VIEWING ON LINE ?

–BATTLE 12/4/2014 2:08:13 PM

No. Sorry. We operate the Q&A from a different city than our warehouse. However, if you are close to a UHaul center, they would have the un-folded box available.

What are the largest possible dimensions of the two boxes telescoped together?

–Addy B. 1/27/2015 7:04:56 AM

"62.5" wide (which includes a 2" overlap in the center) x 37" high x 4" deep. We also offer a Large Mirror box (LMB) if a larger size is needed."

–Ronald 1/28/2015 9:17:31 AM

Will this box fit a shadow frame that measures 28.5" (L) x 12.25" (W) x 1.5" (D)?

–auntie 2/5/2015 12:28:00 PM

The box size is 37" x 4" x 27" - (2.3 cu / ft). All those dimensions exceed your noted dimensions. So yes, I would say it will fit.

–Ronald 2/5/2015 12:48:34 PM

Are the styrofoam corners and straps included with the box?

–Steven Dasilva 4/20/2015 12:11:25 AM

how to telescope the mirror boxes together?

Move on to the second box and press along the dotted lines on the left and right sides until there is an indent or break in the cardboard. Without cutting the flap lock tabs on the bottom end of the first box, and by squeezing the second box sides so they intent, slide the second box into the open (bottom) end of the first box.

Slide your item(s) into the box, then on the open end of the second box, fold the small flaps in, fold one large flap on top of the other and tape. Secure the middle portion where the second box telescopes into the first box with tape.

–Joseph 6/8/2015 4:49:59 PM

I've read the instructions for using 2 mirror boxes. A video would make the process a lot clearer. Do you have one? Know of one on youtube?

–Hayden Jones 6/22/2015 2:00:12 PM

Hey Hayden, I'm sorry but all we have at this time is the photos on the product page showing two boxes being put together.

If you had any detailed questions, you can send them to store@uhaul.com and we will do our best to help you out!

–Joseph 6/25/2015 4:40:13 PM

I don't see a volume discount on mirror boxes online. Is there one?

–Hayden Jones 6/22/2015 2:17:19 PM

No, we do not offer bundle pricing on Mirror Boxes.

–Joseph 6/25/2015 4:40:49 PM

How many framed photos will one box hold?

–Lita 9/12/2015 9:24:17 AM

Lita, it is tough for us to tell without knowing the dimensions of your frames/photos.

If you are trying to fit multiple photos into a single box, you would just want to make sure they fit within a 37" x 4" x 27" space, including an protective material you will be placing between photos.

–Joseph 9/14/2015 12:09:31 PM

Can these be shipped via USPS (regular mail)? I need to send a tin sign to a relative and was wondering if I could buy this box and wrap it in shipping paper in order to send?

–Michael 1/4/2016 1:13:08 PM

Yes, it can be shipped via USPS.

–Joseph 1/4/2016 2:17:58 PM

Can you recommend a good option for moving framed photos which are substantially smaller than this box is designed for? (16"x18" frame, for example.) I've got a LOT of them.

–Sarah K. 6/13/2016 2:25:24 PM

Hey Sarah! I would recommend wrapping your small framed photos inside of cushion foam pouches. For extra protection, you could also wrap them in Enviro-Bubble®. Thanks for your question!

–SAVANNAH 7/26/2016 1:54:02 PM

What box do you recommend for a framed mirror measuring 29" W x 65" H x 2" D?

–Joanne 8/7/2016 7:58:44 PM

We recommend buying two of the Larger Mirror Box to better fit the height dimensions of your mirror. We also recommend getting a Picture Packer Kit to keep your box safe while being transported one place to another.

–SAVANNAH 8/11/2016 3:10:40 PM

can you use this box for a flat screen TV if bubble wrapped?

–Doug 5/18/2017 1:00:46 PM

Hi, Doug! I recommend using our Flat Panel TV Kit to pack your flat screen TV. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 5/25/2017 3:54:10 PM

What do you have for a curved screen television?

–Cheryl 6/30/2017 11:51:51 AM

Hi, Cheryl! As long at your TV fits within the dimensions, the Flat Panel TV Kit should work for your TV.
Please be aware that the TV kit is meant as a moving kit and should not be used for shipping.

I hope that is helpful and thank you for your question!

–Savannah 6/30/2017 3:16:10 PM

What pounds per inch are the rated at?

–Dan 7/24/2017 10:37:05 AM

Hi, Dan! The Mirror / Picture Box has a rating of 32 ECT (edge crush test). This is the standard strength measurement for corrugated boxes. I hope that is helpful!

–Savannah 7/25/2017 8:43:39 AM

I have 3 oil painting. They are 44x45x1.5 and 42x48x1.5 (2 this size). Do I need to buy 4 small picture boxes for each and join them together? Can I put 2 of the same size in one? I would probably need to use bubble wrap?

–Camila Velez 9/16/2017 6:43:13 AM

Hi, Camila! We recommend purchasing 2 large mirror boxes for each of your paintings (6 total boxes) and telescoping them together to ensure your paintings are properly boxed. You could also put two paintings in one box together, meaning you only purchase 4 total boxes. You should also wrap each of the paintings in Enviro-bubble to make sure they are well-protected.

Any boxes you do not use can be returned to a U-Haul Center near you for a refund. I hope that is helpful!
