I want to ship a wide L and I don't have the original box. Has anyone ever purchased a box from UPS or whatever for shipping an L?

Also, what does it usually cost to ship an L via ground?

Thanks

I store my track in boxes. They are 26x26x26 and usually cost about 10$ from a box manufacturer.. One box holds on L in the 'Dusty' stacking method.. You can get away with 24x24, but I couldn't find boxes in that size..

I also ship oversized boxes via UPS for 1/4 scale cars and the weight usually doens't matter when you get that big. Only the distance that you are shipping..

I can ship a box 46x20x12 and I believe they allow up to 70lbs. It usually costs between 30-40 dollars depending on where it is going..

I hope this helps.
