Default Where to buy shipping supplies?

Im mostly interested in where people buy insulated boxes/molded boxes etc.

Who supplies the insulated boxes that people use?

Some are molded. Some are flat packed.

Just looking for sources.

Thanks

John

They practically pay me to take them off their hands at my lfs. Any reasonable sized store usually have them coming out their ears and end up throwing many of them away

Yeah..I get all my other stuff from kens...bags and ship safe etc.

But I want styro cooler boxes....

Im sure a local retail fish store gets more incoming than outgoing so they will be a source for a few.

And if I want to custom make a box, I already use sheet foam insulation from lowes and just cut it with a razor balde.

I guess what I was looking for is where do people get those big deep molded styro cooler lined boxes. Seems like a bulky item to ship to you before you even use it once...

I know Greg uses the Flat pack kind....

But the molded ones just look so fancy!

If you go to a rent to own store like Rent a center, Aarons they get sheets of styro with their refrigerator's. You can talk to the GM and see when they get their trucks in and if you can take it. They also have bubble wrap on many of the living room sets that come in, ill take that and use it as filler, you just have to cut it down.

Thanks
Joe
