Thinner than other boxes

First item I’ve bought from U-Haul that wasn’t designed properly. The main file box is fine, as it’s sized correctly to allow the files to hook over the box edges. The lid however is too small to account for those tabs. Now if the purpose of the box is for files with no tabs, then it would have worked ok. The description clearly says for hanging files, so this product is a fail

Is this a double walled box? I like the shape of this better than the book box and want to use this one for books instead of the book box. Is it sturdy enough for books?

–Marcelle Gorelick 3/16/2020 7:13:49 PM

Hi, Marcelle! Yes, you can put books in a book box, but please keep in mind that due to its size it may become very heavy very quickly. This is NOT a double-walled box.

Which box do you recommend for airplane travel instead of a suitcase?

–Richard Randazzo 12/17/2018 7:41:01 AM

Hi, Richard! We offer a Luggage Box that may be what you're looking for. It works great as an airplane travel carry-on. I hope that is helpful!

How much does it weigh when filled with documents?

–Nicole 9/24/2018 1:12:08 PM

Hi, Nicole! Since the weight of documents can vary, the answer to your question truly depends on the weight of the documents you are planning to place in the box. Keep in mind that the box itself weighs 0.85 pounds and can hold up to 65 pounds maximum. I hope that is helpful!

If hanging folder hanging-tabs hang over the long edges of the box, how does the cover accomidate the extra width?

–Doug 8/11/2016 7:17:01 AM

Hey Doug, the lids accommodate for the hanging tabs for a standard legal folder size. If for any reason you have trouble you can return your file box to a U-Haul Center near you.

–SAVANNAH 8/12/2016 8:12:04 AM

Will these boxes hold legal size hanging files as well as standard size hanging file?

–D Petterson 7/5/2016 6:31:41 AM

Yes, the U-Haul File Box will hold both legal and letter size files.

–SAVANNAH 7/5/2016 8:45:48 AM

How many files can it hold

–felicia 4/29/2015 8:35:48 AM

Felicia, without knowing the width of your files it is impossible to tell.

That being said, the width of the box is 15", so you could measure your files to see how many of them would fit in that space. Thank you.

–Joseph 5/1/2015 11:07:32 AM

is this product 15" wide by 12" deep by 10" tall?

–cmm 3/16/2015 2:57:50 PM

Yes, that is correct! (The handles are on the 12" sides).

Thank you.

–Joseph 3/26/2015 7:56:10 AM

Is this product designed to hand standard-sized (not legal-sized) hanging folders?

–cmm 3/16/2015 2:55:23 PM

Yes, this box can accommodate letter-size hanging folders.  The hanging tabs hang over the 15" long sides of the box. Thank you!

–Joseph 3/23/2015 8:05:10 AM

Will a metal frame holding hanging file folders fit in this box?

–Michael Mutz 6/12/2014 7:28:36 AM

Our buyer for this product writes ... "Yes some may if the dimensions of the frame are for a standard file box of 15" X 12" X 10"

–Ronald 6/12/2014 1:03:23 PM

how high can you stack these boxes?

–Charles 6/2/2014 8:25:51 AM

Our purchasing group advises ... "this would be at the consumers discretion." There are too many variables regarding the stacking of this product. Thanks.

–Ronald 6/2/2014 11:32:30 AM

Do you sell used file boxes and how much are they please?

–Elaine 3/13/2014 9:08:09 AM

Sorry, we do not sell used boxes. We do however offer free boxes through our take a box, leave a box program at every company owned U-Haul location. You may be able to score used file boxes there.
