    I need to ship some pachinkos and can't find the right size box that I can use with USPS. Any suggestions? Thank You! ~Leah

    You can try and get a gently used box from a bicycle shop. The boxes that unassembled bikes are shipped in are large enough.

    I had a vintage shipped to me in a bicycle box once.

    It came demolished. The delivery company laid the box on it's side and stacked other boxes on it.

    Reward hopper, shooter tray, ash tray, trim around the finger rest, numerous ball tracks, various other things, and even the cell... all broken.

    Lucky I got my money back!

    My preferred: https://www.uhaul.com/MovingSupplies...e-Box/?id=8728

    36"x21"x10"... might be a tight fit... depends on the machine.
    Woof!

    This is what we use. But you can only get them in bundles of 5. Leaves plenty of room for padding (We like 1" white foam)

    100 machines and counting...

    Thanks for your help. There's no ULine store in Austin and the shipping cost for 5 boxes is $119 so not a viable option unfortunately.
