Large box

Anyone in the bay area know where I can find a box 7ft long 2 or 3 feet wide? I need to ship out a dinan xpipe.

Should have posted earlier I just threw out a big box cause it was taking up too much space.

Maybe u should sell me the x pipe. I'm local

Why not package it like DINAN do? With the blocks of wood on each end, and wrap the rest in package paper?

When I got my Dinan midpipe from another member, he packed:
1. a lot of bubble wraps to cover all exposed surface area
2. cover up resonators and tip areas with cutout boxes with packing tape.

I received it no damage.

I think showing the actual product shape with protections, UPS/FedEx guys don't throw around because:

1. Since they already know what it is, they lose interest playing football with your pipe.
2. They can't put other heavy boxes over the midpipe. Most likely your pipe will be alone or at least on top of other boxes (not the bottom).
