Hey guys. I'm after quite a few cardboard boxes. I was hoping for ones the size of a fridge, but if they are half the size that's fine too. I probably need around 30 give or take.

Anybody know where the best place to buy them is? Based on WGTN.

Thanks

I tell you what - if you buy me a new fridge, I'll let you have the box for free.

Are you wanting free discarded boxes, or are you prepared to pay for them?

We've just moved. I can't help you with fridge sized boxed, but we've got a lot of tea chest-sized ones. They're yours if you want them (we're in Island Bay).

It will however involve the destruction of my little fort:

That deal sounds too good to be true.

@mdf

When lying on their side, how long and wide are the tea chest boxes? Specifically that Storage King one/s as it looks bigger

Not at home to measure, but the storage king website says its 43cm x 41 cm x 60 cm. 60 cm is the height, so would be that wide lying down. Not big enough?

Just from checking their website, they have a "port a robe" option that is 60 x 48 x 110; might be closer to what you need.

Yeah Storage King looks like the route I will take, either that or I will have to say sorry and break up your fort... PMed anyway.

Couriering yourself off somewhere for a holiday ?

 

Or disposing excess bodies ?
