    Hello friends,

    I need help in finding a really good, permanant supplier of shipping boxes because some of the suppliers have gone up in pricing WAYYY to rapidly.

    I am only looking for either chick shipping boxes, adult single stalls and adult double stalls. Trying to get any information that I can get to help me and others in the future.

    Please respond here or e-mail with the name and phone number of the supplier, approx cost of the boxes, approx. location, any info will be great : )

    Is there ever a case those Single Stall shipping boxes go as low as like $4 each with just an order of 10 or 15 boxes?

    Thanks

    I used to use Matthew's myself, but they are so slow to respond to emails and the last batch of boxes I paid for Priority and they mailed them Parcel. After the delays in responding to notes and then the delay in shipping them a slower method, I ended up not having my boxes in time for shipments and decided it wasn't worth my time to try to do business with someone like that. I gladly pay more for better service. Just my experience.

    So you use this as your supplier now?

    The price seems a bit overpriced though because in all...they are just "cardboard". The reason I say that is because with all my shipments, I end up with at least 50% of them a little messed up and don't fold the way it should and has extra weight where it doesn't need to and that adds to shipping cost.

    PS: Is that due to the reseller buying lesser quality boxes to save more money, hence lack quality on the boxes?...just wondering...

    I'm not sure about that. I've never had problems with the quality of boxes from either supplier. But getting them is important to me and in a timely manner. It doesn't matter how cheap they are if you don't get a response to emails on how much total is due for payment.
