    I'm selling a bass on ebay and need a box to ship it in. I looked on boxes.com but they don't have one large enought. Any ideas on where I can get a large enough box??
     
  2. Go to a music store. They have sometimes the appropriate boxes around.
     
  3. just do what i do...go to your favorite guitar store and ask for a box. They usually have one sitting around, and don't mind giving it to you because they just toss them in the trash when they are done with them...just ask around! Otherwise if they are tightwads, they'll make you give them a dollar or two, but it sounds like it wouldn't be a problem if you were on boxes.com to get a box!

    The boxes they get their bikes in work perfectly.

    And at the music shops, if they don't have large bass boxes, use the keyboard boxes-they work great too.
