Why should I buy boxes from the Shipping Desk instead of somewhere else?


Certain containers and boxes used for shipping on campus vary in size and quality, and are sometimes not constructed of materials that are safe or sturdy enough for shipping.  Also, shipping carriers (UPS, FedEx, DHL) have special requirements if you are insuring your package for shipment. 


What are the prices for boxes and shipping materials?
