Where do you find a box big enough to ship a saddle?

I've shipped several saddles at the UPS store. They provide the box and everything. Certainly more pricy than getting your own box but it's sure convenient.

Walmart had a 24" X 18" X 18" for about $2 that might work. Pirate Ship is a good website to buy cheap shippng labels. They sell USPS and UPS labels. They sell them cheaper than USPS and UPS.

I actually had this same problem, took my barrel saddle to UPS store it was going to cost about $130 to box and ship, it's cheaper if you get your own box, pack it and take to UPS store because then you are only paying shipping.  I found a shipping box that was large enough at U-haul so after measuring my saddle I knew what size I needed which was the Extra large box.  If you find that it's too tall I just scored the sides and bent the flaps down so that the measurments for shipping were smaller.  You are paying for the size and weight of packed box.
