Sources for Really Large Boxes?

January 11, 2006

Really large cardboard box.Does anyone know where I can find refrigerator boxes, or really large TV boxes. I have called Lowes, Home Depot, independent appliance stores, several big stores and NO ONE has any refrigerator boxes they can give me. Does anyone have any other ideas? I need them for my daughter's Birthday party.

Why don't you try the Dollar Store or Dollar General. They restock quite often.

I work for a plumbing/HVAC wholesale distributor- we don't have boxes the size of refrigerators, but we do have plenty of really big boxes. At our store, all you have to do is ask- we will gladly give you some for free. Our company dosen't have stores in TX, but hopefully your local plbg distributor can help you.

Where can I get giant boxes, like refrigerator boxes, for a cardboard tank I'm building? I'm a kid so I would need to be driven wherever I go.

Please try to find some in the Peekskill, NY region. It would be much appreciated! Thanks!

You can contact a stoe like Home Depot who sell refrigerator or even stoves to people. I think Best Buy also sells these items. If they are delivered to a person's home the truck driver normally brings back the boxes to the store. I am not sure what they do with them. A lot of stores now break them down and recycle them. I would go to Best Buy and see if the owner of the store will set aside one or two of these large boxes for you after they make a delivery.


You may need to go there right away to pick them up before they are cut down and recycled. When I was younger you could go to the back of many stores and just pick up boxes. Now they do not allow this and recycle them.

I hope you know you will probably need a van or a pickup truck to pick up these large boxes. This size box is also heavy and will probably need at least two people to load them.

As information; most of the large stores sell all of their cardboard and they use a strapping machine to bundle it. You will see their bundles awaiting pickup in the rear of their stores but it may still be possible - not sure about that.


I do know that smaller furniture stores will usually accommodate a request like this if you find out their delivery dates.
Google furniture stores with your zip code and see if any stores are near you. Smaller stores have refrigerator, stove, bed, and other appliance boxes and usually just dump them in a large area behind their store waiting for later pickup.
