uhaul... you can buy them, then the ones you don't use, return them. A lot of other places won't let you return unused boxes.



edit: and if its for wheels... go at least 2 to 3 inches bigger on either side of the wheel and fill with lots of packing popcorn, bubble wraps and other foamies to protect it.

If it is for wheels, hit up a local tire shop and ask if they have spares

They sell different size boxes, see what sizes you need.

Good reasonable rates on shipping too...

Find one of those community newspaper boxes (with the free ones) and pack lots of paper around them.

Saw some at Staples (by brentwood) and they were about $5-8 each around that size.

They're cheaper at home depot though

Ya you're kind of limited with McDonalds but hey, they're free and you can take as much as you want.

Didn't think you'd take my answer seriously haha
