Great Box! Super Speedy Delivery!
Hi, Danielle! The flat dimensions of one of our small moving boxes is 29-1/8" x 25-7/8" x 3/8". The bundle dimensions are about 29-1/8" x 25-7/8" x 8-1/2". I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Don! We recommend checking out our article on the Right Way to Assemble a Moving Box. These directions apply to our small moving box as well as most of our other moving boxes. Thank you!
Hello, Lola! One of our small moving boxes weighs about 1 pound. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Kelly! Yes, the measurements are exact - 16-3/8" x 12-5/8" x 12-5/8". Thank you!
Hi, Luke! A bundle of our small moving boxes is 25 boxes. Thanks for asking!
Hi, Julia! Our boxes only require that you fold and tape down the top and bottom of the box. No other assembly is required. For visuals on how to assemble a U-Haul moving box, please check out our article on The Right Way to Assemble a Moving Box. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Patty! A U-Haul 10' truck can fit about 265 small boxes into it. If you are inquiring about a non-U-Haul vehicle, it would depend on all 3 dimensions (length, width, and height). Each small box is 1.5 cubic feet. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Rhonda! At this time, we do not sell our book box in discounted bundles. Our small box, however, is sold in bundles of 25. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Kevin! Yes, all of our moving boxes require tape for assembly except for the EZ Wardrobe Box. We offer a variety of tape that will work for our moving boxes, but I recommend our Box / Packaging Paper Tape. Each 55 yard roll assembles at least 6-10 boxes. You should only need one strip to seal the bottom of the box and one strip to seal the top of the box, but if the box is going to be filled heavy, I recommend using extra tape to secure the box. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Fred! Yes, you can absolutely purchase boxes from one U-Haul Center and return them at another as long as they have not been used. Make sure to keep your receipt! Thanks for your question!
Hey, Bill! Based on the cubic foot volume of the U-Haul 5x8 cargo trailer and the cubic foot volume of our small boxes, we estimate that somewhere between 130-135 small boxes could fit in the 5x8 cargo trailer. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Annemarie! Our largest flat box is our Grand Wardrobe Box which measures at 70" x 45" x 5/8" before it is assembled into a box. We do not have a flattened box that is the size you are looking for.
We do offer a corrugated kraft floor runner, if that is what you are looking for. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Mary! We recommend the Medium Moving Box for packing jeans. Each medium box could fit about 40-60 jeans so you will likely need about 4-5 boxes. Any extra boxes you don't use can always be returned to a U-Haul center for a full refund. I hope that is helpful!
Hi, Darrin! A small box bundle is 25 boxes and the current bundle pricing is $0.86 USD per box if you have the boxes shipped to your home. Save money by picking the boxes up from a U-Haul center for $0.81 per box. I hope this was helpful!
Hello, Renee! Our moving boxes are not acid free. Thanks for asking!
Anyone can purchase boxes from U-Haul, no equipment rental reservation is needed! You can purchase online or you can visit your local U-Haul Center to purchase boxes there. Thanks for asking!
Hi, Donna! Yes, our small moving box can be used for dishes.
I recommend using some packing supplies to protect your dishes, such as cushion foam to wrap and protect your dishes as well as wrapping paper or Biodegradable Packing Peanuts to fill any empty space to prevent your dishes from shifting. I hope that is helpful!
Jerry, you were most likely looking at boxes at one of our independent dealers. They are able to set their own pricing for any moving supplies they purchase from us. Corporate U-Haul locations would have the same pricing as what you see online.
Hi Ron. We'd recommend a small moving box for CD storage. Any larger sizes such as a medium would be pretty heavy by the time you loaded in all the CD's, and you might risk damaging some of the cases on the bottom.
Hi Ron. Our neighborhood dealers can decide their own prices for moving supplies. If you select a corporate owned facility (normally the name begins with U-Haul Moving and Storage of...) then the price will reflect our corporate rate.
Hey Jureal, I would recommend watching our video on how to properly pack dishes. I also recommend checking out the products mentioned in the video that are intended for properly packing dishes such as the Dish Saver Kit, wrapping paper, and our cushion foam pouches. All of the aforementioned products and the video should help you pack your dishes as safely and securely as possible!
Each Medium Moving Box costs $1.35, so 6 Medium Moving Boxes would cost $8.10 plus shipping and taxes that apply. Thanks for your question!
We will refund any unused box no matter how long it has been since you purchased them!
If you have your receipt, you can take them to any U-Haul Center for a full refund to your original method of purchase.
If you don't have a receipt, then you will be refunded with a U-Haul certificate which can be used on any U-Haul product or service.
If you don't have your receipt, but still have the card which was used for the original purchase, then a U-Haul Center should be able to look up the receipt for your original purchase and get you refunded.
If you paid with cash and don't have a receipt, then your only option is to receive a U-Haul certificate as a refund. Thanks for asking!
No, boxes are not pre-treated with pesticide.
Yes, they are!
Hey Al, we don't offer a specific size or ECT strength box for glassware, but we do offer a wide range of boxes specifically designed to keep those fragile glass items safe during your move.
Our Glass Pack Kit comes with a built in cell to keep your glassware from moving around during transport. Coupled with protective material like our bubble wrap and cushion foam, it is the best option for those fragile items.
The Dish Saver Kit is very similar to the Glass Pack Kit, but the cell has larger compartments for plates and such that need more space.
This Dish Barrel Box is also a great option for drinking and wine glasses.
Cindy, U-Haul offers a number of different box sharing programs. I believe what you are looking for is the take a box, leave a box program that is offered at many of our company owned stores.
If you are wondering if your closest U-Haul location offers this program, feel free to give them a call and inquire about their participation, and how many boxes may currently be sitting in the free area!
Hey Theresa, it is hard to say without knowing what size records you will be using.
Your best bet would be to measure the width of a few of your records and then see how many would fit into a space of 16-3/8" (the length of the box).
Yes, they can be shipped via USPS!
Our small box is 16-3/8" wide x 12-5/8" long x 12-5/8" tall.
Our Small Moving Box is just slightly larger than the Home Depot boxes you bought, so if you stack them on the bottom you should be just fine!
Unfortunately, there is no industry standard for cardboard boxes so everywhere you buy is going to have slightly different dimensions. That being said, our boxes are the strongest and still cost less than the competition.
Hey Leigh, good question!
ECT stands for Edge Crush Test. The Edge Crush Test is a standard measurement tool used to test the strength of corrugated boxes by measuring how resistant they are to being crushed at their edges.
Knowing the gross weight a particular box will hold gives a basic idea of strong it may be, but ECT gives a much more detailed understanding. You often times won't see any of our competitors advertising the ECT of their boxes because they simply don't compare to ours!
U-Haul Authorized Dealers set their own prices on moving supply products. Thanks for asking!
We recommend using the U-Haul Book Box for moving books. The Book Box is exactly 1 cubic foot.
Jason, in some cases the in-store prices are different than online. If you are able, choose the in store pick up option and select your local U-Haul store. The prices for that specific location will then show up on the product page.
Our pricing for our corporate owned centers and online store are the same. Our independent dealers can set their own sell prices. Thank you.
Yes, these boxes are large enough to fit vinyl records. Thank you.
Without knowing the size of the books I can only estimate. My estimate would be 15-20. Thank you.
On the top, yes. On the side, no.
Our web site information indicates yes this box will work for record albums. Thanks.
It depends on the weight in each of the boxes and where they are being stacked. "Box dimensions: 16-3/8" x 12-5/8" x 12-5/8" (1.5 cu/ft) 32 ECT." Thanks.
Made in the USA.
These boxes have handles designed for moving. The handles holds do not have flaps to tape over the holds. However, we do have boxes without the handles that would most likely work better for you. http://www.uhaul.com/MovingSupplies/Shipping-boxes-supplies/
They ship flat. You have to open then bend the flaps down and tape.
Most boxes qualify for the return to our company owned Centers. There is no time limit for the return. You will need your receipt and the boxes must be un-used.
When unassembled, this box is not designed to be folded. You can force a fold, however, it will weaken the strength of the box.
Hi, Leslie! If you are picking up your order in-store, you will not have to pay any shipping costs, even if the order is not $50.
If you buy 25 you will pay the 25+ rate. You will not be charged anymore than that for the ones you keep if and when you return the unused ones.
Small bundle is 25
Yes. Small box size is: 16-3/8" x 12-5/8" x 12-5/8"
Hi, Debbie! This box can hold up to 65 pounds. Thanks for asking!
They are perforated and have to be punched out if you decide to use the handles.
Our buyer for this product writes: "65 lbs. / 65 lbs."
UHaul made the decision to reduce the sell price of our most popular boxes. One of which was the small box. By doing so, it created exactly what you have pointed out. It's really not that our book box is priced high. It is not. It's that our core boxes have been lowered.
Our purchasing department notes the weight of this product is 1.15LB each.
Please go to uhaul.com. Then click "Locations". Once there enter your zip code. Select the "Box returns" box. Then click "Find Locations". The results will display the return locations based on your zip. You will need to take your receipt with you to the location.
These boxes are rated 32 ECT.
