Where can I buy cardboard shipping boxes for wheels?...TFerguson

Does anybody know where I can buy the special shipping boxes that are made for a bike wheel? They are about 6" in the center and taper down to about 1" at the edge. They are smaller than the UPS and USPS "oversize" box limits.

Thanks,
TF

Go to a bike shop, they should have boxes laying around, or you can go to those trucking places where they rent trucks for people to move, ask them, they will either have it, and send you to a place where they sell it....your best bet is the bike shop though...help the info helps

Take the skewers off and put them in a bike box. I just shipped some wheels out last week and it worked fine. Just separate them with some cardboard and fill the rest with newspaper.
And how much was shipping?...TFerguson

In separate wheel boxes, you can ship both wheels for about $12.50.
