What is the strength of these boxes, for stacking purposes? Are they #200?

–Allison 12/30/2013 11:58:13 AM

These boxes are rated 32 ECT.

–Stephen 1/27/2014 7:42:22 AM

We have approx. 100 small boxes and 200 medium boxes left over untouched from our move. Can we return them and if so where and how.

–Joanne 1/13/2014 11:11:58 AM

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.

–Ronald 1/13/2014 1:31:38 PM

How much do these boxes weigh?

–Moriah Joelle 2/6/2014 11:20:02 AM

Our purchasing department notes the weight of this product is 1.15LB each.

–Ronald 2/6/2014 11:42:19 AM

Why are the small and medium boxes less expensive than the book box?

–Sylvia 3/3/2014 2:26:00 PM

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.

–Ronald 4/23/2014 10:27:11 AM

What us the weight max in this box

–Janet 3/27/2014 11:50:16 PM

Our buyer for this product writes: "65 lbs. / 65 lbs."

–Ronald 4/17/2014 1:42:03 PM

Are the handle holes perforated or already punched out?

–Robert 3/29/2014 8:37:06 PM

They are perforated and have to be punched out if you decide to use the handles.

–Ronald 4/17/2014 11:46:27 AM

How much weight can this box hold?

–Debbie 4/3/2014 8:31:55 AM

Hi, Debbie! This box can hold up to 65 pounds. Thanks for asking!

–Savannah 6/7/2017 3:35:17 PM

Can I drop a normal office file box (16X12.5X10) directly into the small box? I need something which is sturdier for a long-distance move. Thanks!

–AP 4/17/2014 8:29:59 PM

Yes. Small box size is: 16-3/8" x 12-5/8" x 12-5/8"

–Ronald 4/21/2014 10:21:24 AM

how many small boxes come in a bundle?

–richard 5/28/2014 4:21:59 AM

Small bundle is 25

–Ronald 5/28/2014 1:47:58 PM

If I buy 25 small boxes for the cheaper rate, and then return the ones I don't use, do I still get the cheaper rate on the ones I keep?

–Dianna 5/28/2014 1:11:26 PM

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.

–Ronald 5/28/2014 1:35:59 PM

If I order online at the 25+ rate and mark pick-up at store, is there a shipping cost if the total is less than $50?

–Leslie 6/7/2014 8:45:15 AM

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.

–Savannah 6/7/2017 3:55:00 PM

Are these moving boxes foldable?

–Barbara 8/30/2014 1:08:38 PM

When unassembled, this box is not designed to be folded. You can force a fold, however, it will weaken the strength of the box.

–Ronald 9/2/2014 9:59:55 AM

Your small box (16-3/8" x 12-5/8" x 12-5/8" ) is recommended for "records". Are these the internal or external dimensions?

–John Crawford 9/22/2014 1:33:05 PM

"Internal dimensions"

–Ronald 10/1/2014 3:44:57 PM

Is there a time limit to returning unused boxes, or will you take them back and refund them as long as I have the receipt?

–Rachel 10/19/2014 10:37:52 AM

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.

–Ronald 10/20/2014 9:33:16 AM

Do these boxes need to be assembled or are they pre-assembled?

–Judi 11/4/2014 4:53:23 PM

They ship flat. You have to open then bend the flaps down and tape.

–Ronald 11/5/2014 9:06:29 AM

To ship the small moving boxes, are there flaps to tape down to cover the openings used for lifting?

–Angela 11/6/2014 2:07:02 PM

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/

–Ronald 11/6/2014 2:29:41 PM

What is the country of origin for these boxes (where they're made)?

–Theresa 12/16/2014 11:15:08 AM

Made in the USA.

–Ronald 12/16/2014 11:38:01 AM

How many fully filled small boxes can be stacked vertically?

–WIT 1/1/2015 11:36:26 AM

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.

–Ronald 1/2/2015 7:56:22 AM

Will these boxes fit vinyl records with ease?

–Kevin 1/4/2015 2:53:17 PM

Our web site information indicates yes this box will work for record albums. Thanks.

–Ronald 1/5/2015 9:17:01 AM

Do boxes have on top and side to write room they go into and items inside?

–Anne 1/15/2015 7:33:48 AM

On the top, yes. On the side, no.

–Ronald 1/15/2015 8:47:13 AM

I need boxes, L 16"x W 12" x H 14" or close

–Ronald 1/15/2015 10:51:22 AM

how many books will one box hold

–Lisa 2/5/2015 12:25:45 PM

Without knowing the size of the books I can only estimate. My estimate would be 15-20. Thank you.

–Ronald 2/5/2015 12:46:08 PM

Are these boxes large enough for vinyl records?

–Adriana Ferri 2/14/2015 11:18:07 AM

Yes, these boxes are large enough to fit vinyl records. Thank you.

–Ronald 2/16/2015 11:10:16 AM

Price? Why did I pay $2.05 for ONE small box at the u-haul centre on Kensington Road? Are the on-line prices not the same as at the prices in the locations?

–Jill 2/16/2015 11:06:02 AM

Our pricing for our corporate owned centers and online store are the same. Our independent dealers can set their own sell prices. Thank you.

–Ronald 2/16/2015 11:24:52 AM

Are the prices online the same as in store?

–Jason 3/11/2015 11:43:00 AM

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.

Thank you.

–Joseph 3/11/2015 11:55:00 AM

How many boxes are needed to move approximately 125 linear feet of books?

–St, Matthias Church 4/7/2015 5:35:59 AM

We recommend using the U-Haul Book Box for moving books. The Book Box is exactly 1 cubic foot.

–Joseph 4/15/2015 11:21:44 AM

I just came from a uhaun un brooklyn Atlantic ave and they were sellung the small boxes for $3. Is that normal pricing for a uhaul "dealer" as the guy behind the counter said?

–I. Thorpe 5/1/2015 12:50:18 PM

U-Haul Authorized Dealers set their own prices on moving supply products. Thanks for asking!

–Joseph 5/5/2015 5:13:06 PM

What is 32 ETC in regard to strength, as in the answer to the first question on the list?

–Leigh Schaefer 6/16/2015 6:51:28 PM

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!

–Joseph 6/17/2015 4:39:56 PM

I saved some boxes from a previous move that were home depot's 12*12*16" boxes. Are your boxes and their boxes the same size and an industry standard and they are just rounding down? If I'm stacking a lot of boxes and using space efficiently it helps if they are the same sizes.

–Alice 6/21/2015 8:40:19 PM

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.

–Joseph 6/25/2015 4:41:11 PM

What is the best small box to hold vhs and dvds separately?

–mindy 6/30/2015 6:53:08 PM

We recommend the Book Box or the Small Box for VHS and DVDs.

–Joseph 8/31/2015 12:26:41 PM

is the small box 12x12 square, and 16" tall, or is it it 12x16, and 12" tall?

–bob 7/22/2015 5:51:22 AM

Our small box is 16-3/8" wide x 12-5/8" long x 12-5/8" tall.

–Joseph 8/31/2015 5:02:39 PM

Can I use moving boxes to ship via usps? I understand moving boxes passed the UPS and FedEx requirements. However, I realized that I bought a lot of moving boxes instead of shipping boxes. Please advise.

–Lan 7/28/2015 1:36:29 AM

Yes, they can be shipped via USPS!

–Joseph 8/28/2015 3:44:37 PM

Approximatel how many standard vinyl records will each box hold?

–Teresa Williams 8/10/2015 6:19:45 PM

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).

–Joseph 8/31/2015 10:42:03 AM

Where can we get the free moving boxes?

–Cindy 8/14/2015 12:05:57 PM

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!

–Joseph 8/17/2015 4:41:28 PM

Is there a special (Recommended) size, gross weight limit and crush strength for glassware? Thanks

–AL GILMORE 4/10/2016 9:58:18 AM

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.

–Joseph 4/11/2016 11:18:33 AM

Are these boxes large enough and strong enough to hold DVD's?

–Jennifer 5/3/2016 11:34:35 AM

Yes, they are!

–Joseph 5/4/2016 9:05:42 AM

Are the boxes pre-treated with pesticide? This is important to me for storage, etc.

–Terri 5/8/2016 6:03:41 PM

No, boxes are not pre-treated with pesticide.

–Joseph 5/9/2016 9:25:15 AM

is there a time limit on return of unused boxes and packing material. It has been almost 90 days since I purchased them.

–tw 5/28/2016 2:22:18 PM

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!

–Joseph 5/31/2016 8:47:00 AM

What's the cost of 6 medium boxes?

–Winsome 7/26/2016 2:26:18 PM

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!

–SAVANNAH 7/26/2016 3:49:27 PM

what is best way to dishes: standing up, or laying flat in box?

–Jureal Henderson 8/12/2016 7:14:08 AM

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!

–SAVANNAH 8/12/2016 11:52:09 AM

Why does the price of small boxes say .99 or @25 boxes it's .73 but them when I find a dealer the price jumps up to $1.50 a box even if I get 25 boxes it's still $1.50?

–Ron 9/18/2016 11:36:55 AM

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.

–TIMOTHY 11/15/2016 9:06:27 AM

What size box would be good to store music cd's?

–Ron D. 11/4/2016 2:07:17 PM

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.

–TIMOTHY 11/11/2016 8:23:23 AM

Why is the price for a small shipping box doubled when purchased in at U-haul compared with paying half the purchase online?

–Jerry Washington 4/17/2017 10:21:47 PM

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.

–TIMOTHY 4/18/2017 3:30:19 PM

Can this be used for dishes?

–Donna 9/6/2017 9:34:22 AM

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!

–Savannah 9/6/2017 11:04:46 AM

Can anyone purchase boxes from UHaul, do you have to be renting a vehicle to buy?

–D. Kerchaert 9/21/2017 10:19:18 AM

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!
