    Source of free cardboard box suitable for shipping a folder?

    I need to ship a folder and am looking for a box. I've been riding in the back of shopping centers looking for that right sized box.

    All the boxes I've found are small and wouldn't work.

    I'm thinking maybe rolls of bounty towels or maybe toilet paper would come in bigger type boxes, but I don't know. All I would need to do is to ask the store manager and I'm sure he'll part with one.

    Any suggestions?

    BTW, this would be for a dahon bike.

    I was able to use the box my office chair came in.

    Go to a bike shop.

    They should be happy to give you one and for a small fee they'll probably also package and ship your bike.

    Lalato, thanks for the suggestion on the office chair. I may go to an office depot or staples.

    Chucky, I thought about the bike box, but I'm not sure that I would fit lengthwise. If you remove the wheels, it would work, but part of the attraction of a folder is that you just unfold it and go. I don't have QR wheels.
