I'm moving! :) - February 3, 2011, 06:25 AM

dont worry little ones... i'm not going far. AND NO i dont need your backs to pick shit up.

1. I need boxes... hit me up if you have some empties for me!

2. What is the best way to "move" a tool box that scales at over 400lbs empty?

If you need me... i'll be at The Reserves at Fairfax Corner I know some jeep donkeys are there... anyone here live there?

Working at a shop for a while the best way from my experience is a flat bed tow truck or a large lift gate, and plenty of chains/straps.

I have some old corrugated cardboard boxes.

If you know your cardboard boxes, you'll realize that these are the well built corrugated ones that last forever - not like the flimsy crap they put out nowadays.

These boxes are in high demand. Several members on other cardboard box forums have inquired about them already. I'd keep these boxes myself but am upgrading to rolling stainless steel crates.

If you want them let me know, I have someone flying in from Tulsa to come take a look at the boxes this weekend.

$25/box

When I moved my lathe (1000 lbs) I used a 2 ton engine hoist to put in the back of a std box truck.

If you were anywhere near Springfield I can get you a bunch of boxes from work. Other then that absolute best place to find boxes are bookstores. They are always getting tons of stuff in and their boxes are ussually good size for moving and sturdy.

I always go to the abc store and find out what days they get their shipments. I then went every week and got as many boxes as I needed. They are also small enough that you can not over load them and make them to heavy to carry.


I moved my fully loaded tool box in the back of my pick up. It was a pain to unload however.
