Do u still set a bundle of small boxes

–sherri county 11/13/2013 8:24:04 AM

Yes, we offer bundle discount pricing on the Small boxes, but not on the Book Box. We also offer bundle discounts, on our MED, LG and XLG boxes. When on the product page for those products, you'll notice a discount table showing where the price break is (which is also the quantity of the bundle).

–Karen Harvey 11/27/2013 10:21:57 AM

besides size, what is the difference between a book box and a small box

–thomas 1/29/2014 8:36:07 AM

The only notable change other than size is that the Small Box has handles.

–Stephen 1/29/2014 8:47:03 AM

Are these boxes acid free? Can I safely store books in these for extended periods of time?

–Robert 3/29/2014 8:36:06 PM

Hi, Robert! These boxes are NOT acid free. However, you can safely store books in them for extended periods of time. Make sure to seal it shut with tape to ensure no dust, dirt or debris can enter the box. Thanks for your question!

–Savannah 6/7/2017 3:42:09 PM

What is the maximum weight of the book box versus the small box?

–Leslie 4/1/2014 6:41:17 AM

Hi, Leslie! Both the book box and the small box hold a maximum weight of 65 pounds. The difference between them is the dimensions and also that the small box has handles. Thanks for your question!

–Savannah 6/7/2017 3:38:43 PM

Other than the measurements and the handles what is the difference between the book box and the small box?

–Julie 6/30/2014 3:47:33 PM

Our box program manager writes: "The differences are the handles, the size, and the design on the box."

–Ronald 7/1/2014 1:13:00 PM

you box dimensions are not labeled. which are L,W,H?

–Charlie 7/28/2014 9:51:22 AM

L = left to right, W = front to back, H = bottom to top. Thanks.

–Ronald 7/28/2014 9:55:13 AM

Apox how many standard size hard back books fit into 1 book box

–JLT28 8/2/2014 9:13:50 AM

"Because books vary in sizes, the weight limit and size of the box are going to be the most accurate ways to describe what the box can hold. The weight limit is 65 lbs and the size is 12" x 12" x 12"."

–Ronald 8/7/2014 11:19:34 AM

How many boxes you get for a dollar and $1.25

Do these boxes have handles and how much would I've Overly costs be for 24-30 boxes

–Kate 2/19/2015 9:12:12 AM

Hi Kate, the Book Box does not have handles. I am unsure of what you are asking in the second part of your question, could you rephrase? Thank you.

–Joseph 2/20/2015 4:21:24 PM

Are these strong enough for shipping boxes by mail?

–mover 3/12/2015 11:26:14 PM

They absolutely are! All U-Haul boxes are durable enough to ship by mail. Thank you.

–Joseph 3/13/2015 9:38:48 AM

Are book boxes sized to fit old-school vinyl records, or do you have boxes specifically for records?

–vinyl fan 4/21/2015 11:57:39 AM

If your records are 12" x 12" or smaller they will fit in the Book Box.

The Small U-Haul Box may be a good alternative as well. We do not have boxes that are made specifically for vinyl records.

–Joseph 4/22/2015 9:57:57 AM

Does this box fit heavy text books?

–Ange 4/26/2015 12:58:23 PM

Yes, this box is perfect for books as long as they are smaller than 12" x 12" x 12".

–Joseph 4/27/2015 9:27:04 AM

Are these boxes approved for USPS media mail shipment?

–Elizabeth 5/19/2015 7:35:30 PM

This box is approved for standard shipping through USPS, however you will have to check with USPS regarding media mail. Thank you!

–Joseph 5/28/2015 10:18:26 AM

Do you have a better price per box if I buy in bulk, maybe 25+ or 50+?

–Tom 5/28/2015 7:03:02 PM

We do not offer bundle pricing for the Book Box.

We do offer 25+ bundle pricing on our Small Box if that is an acceptable substitute.

–Joseph 5/29/2015 10:06:12 AM

If I'm renting a truck from you, do you charge for boxes?

–Holly Whiting 5/28/2015 9:06:11 PM

Yes, if you are renting a U-Haul truck, you will still have to pay for moving supplies.

–Joseph 5/29/2015 10:05:10 AM

–Joseph 10/19/2015 10:49:47 AM

–Wanda 1/5/2016 10:15:57 AM

No, I'm sorry, we do not.

We have a 12x12x6 and a 12x12x12, if one of those options will work.

–Joseph 1/5/2016 4:10:43 PM

Why was I charged a higher price for boxes picked up at a location, when they are listed on the website at a lower price?

–Roy 1/8/2016 11:27:52 AM

Our online prices and in store prices may vary. If you are online and chose the pick up in store option and select a specific location, the page will show you pricing for that exact store.

–Joseph 1/8/2016 12:13:21 PM

can I buy just 1 box/

–jake 5/16/2016 1:07:28 PM

Yes, you can buy a single box.

–Joseph 5/16/2016 3:10:21 PM

Hi - I see that answers to other questions say the only difference between small and book boxes are the handles on the small box. Is that true? It seems, then, that I am better off buying small boxes for my books instead of book boxes??

–KT 5/9/2017 5:08:51 PM

Hi, KT! Although the gross weight limit for both our Book Box and our Small Moving Box is the same, the dimensions of the Book Box are actually smaller than the Small Moving Box. So, it really depends how big you want the box to be when choosing between the two. I hope that's helpful!

–Savannah 5/24/2017 1:12:16 PM

Approximate no of books per box

–Carol Dale 8/2/2017 8:05:11 PM

Hi, Carol! The answer to your question really depends on the sizes of the books you want to pack in this box. My best estimate would be 15-30 books. I managed to fit about 20 standard size novels into one box (each book being about 200-300 pages).

Of course, if you buy more book boxes than you end up needing, you can always return them to a U-Haul center (as long as they're unused and you have your receipt).

–Savannah 8/4/2017 7:17:07 AM

What is the thickness of the walls? What is the outer dimension of the box?

–Devayani 12/9/2017 5:57:14 PM

Hey, Devayani! Although our the thickness of our boxes varies, the book box is about 1/8" thick. This means that the outer dimensions of the book box are about 12-1/8" x 12-1/8" x 12-1/8". I hope that is helpful!
