HI all. I need to ship my pelican storm case and would like to put it in a cardboard box. The case is 48x18x7". I've tried uline and other online merchants but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for, any ideas?

You don't need a box to ship it. If it's just

the empty case, take it to UPS and have them wrap it in their plastic wrap and stick a label on it. I shipped one this way. The Pelican case is strong enough, it's not going to get damaged

Should have said that my ev2 will be in it.
Dan, the AA EV2 is underated. Fantastic gun. Pellican cases are among the best.

A cardboard box around the pellican case may protect against scratches on the case but who gives a crap about scratches on the case? I've shipped a lot of guns and even a pellican case in shipping needs interior reinforcement. Put accordian (multi folded) cardboard at the butt and barrel of the gun. Reinforce the top and bottom of the gun with rigid foam. On the outer latches of the case put zip ties instead of padlocks as the design affords. Yes, the latches are strong but you don't need cardboard to insure locking if you do this and you don't need cardboard to ship if you do this. Fedex will accept this package with a sticker on the outside. Don't need saran wrap or cardboard to ship. Don't know if other carriers want plastic or cardboard around it or not.

Try early in morning. Or ask when best time is to get some.
They have lots of large boxes they bale up during the day.
You can cut one to size to fit.
Dumpsters behind strip malls may work too.

One near me will give you boxes and they are about the right size but you have to get there before they hit the recycler.

My local UPS store made a cardboard box to fit my rifle and case when
I shipped it. Cut to size.
