Packing Boxes for Sale as a Business Enterprise

If I ever wanted to go into business I would probably start with one of two ideas: medical uniforms, or packaging and shipping supplies. You see, medical uniforms are always in high demand. You know how you go into the pediatrician’s office and all those cute scrubs just automatically make everyone a little bit happier? They are usually shiny and crisp looking; Sylvester the Cat or mustaches or Pooh Bear, not a stain in sight. These people have to buy those. They have to maintain a standard, you see. They have to look sharp, and friendly, and like they care. What does any of this have to do with packing boxes for sale? Not a whole heck of a lot, when you are looking at them together. But when you are looking at them as two separate, possible business enterprises it starts to make a little bit more sense.

Just like medical uniforms are in constant, high demand, so are packaging and shipping supplies! If I could offer packing boxes for sale in bulk, I think people would really respond to that. How many times, when you are getting ready to move, do you dread having to spend all that money on packaging supplies? If you buy any of it from a local department store you are sure to overspend, and forget about the actual moving stores. They upcharge like crazy! You probably wont wind up leaving yourself enough time to order online, either.

Packing Boxes for Sale

Enter: your local packaging and shipping supply store, with packing boxes for sale, packaging tape, moving blankets, you name it. On your way home from work you can go and pick up a bundle of boxes and set your mind at ease. I could even put together a moving bundle, with different size boxes, and tape, and bubble wrap, and those little divider things for cups and vases and stuff. And tall, skinny boxes for lamps because, let’s face it, moving lamps is a huge pain in the B-U-T-T. The crucial part is making sure that the prices are competitive to what is going on online. I bet moving companies would even start to purchase from a local store, at least in a pinch.

Of course I know that there are already stores that offer packaging and shipping supplies, but those are usually shipping stores, and they won’t offer everything necessary for packing up a whole house, and you certainly couldn’t buy it in large quantities.

So, yeah, I’ve got some thinking to do. The local college has a really great physician’s assistant program, and I could probably get signed on to provide them with their uniforms for the students. Or I could put up a sign that says “packing boxes for sale”.

Large Shipping Boxes At Your Disposal

What does anything have anything to do with large shipping boxes? Well, let me tell you. The answer is: big stuff. That’s right, I said big stuff. Because isn’t it just the truth that when you go the post office they only have boxes sized small, smaller, and smallest? What about the large shipping boxes? You usually have to go dumpster diving for those babies, or put a notice up on Facebook (“Hey, friends, anyone got a big box they don’t need anymore?”). It’s like the USPS thinks that large shipping boxes are overrated. It’s like they want to discourage you from sending anything larger than what they have to offer. I mean, I can’t say that I blame them. Of course if you were in charge of handling those things and moving them around and loading and unloading and shuffling about you would want to make sure that the size was pretty compatible with your energy and strength level. Naturally, “large” wouldn’t fit into that equation.


When it comes to needing to ship something large, you probably want to just start out at a shipping store. The prices are more or less comparable, even cheaper than going directly through a major shipping company. The best part is that when you arrive you have your pick of large shipping boxes. They have all manner of packaging and shipping supplies. Stuff for posters. Bubble wrap and brown paper. Wrapping paper and birthday cards. I try not to go to the post office at all anymore. I always wind up forgetting something and have to postpone the entire errand. If I start out by going to a shipping store I can be sure to have access to anything I may have forgotten. Like tape. I’m always forgetting tape. Or large shipping boxes! If I want to ship some pillows I don’t want to have to scrounge around for some second hand box that makes no sense. I don’t want to have to vacuum seal them either so that they can fit in a smaller sized box.

Of course, you should be prepared that when you are shipping something large the cost is going to reflect. Depending on where you are trying to send something you might even find yourself needing a new pair of pants after you get the total (unfortunately, pants are not something they generally offer at a shipping store).
