Julie: I've purchased a few of these boxes in the past, but don't have one to measure precisely at the moment. Generally, boxes are sized by interior dimensions so that you can know how large of an item will fit inside. For heavy-walled boxes like these, the exterior measurements will be 3/8-in or more than the stated box size. And, of course, shippers round up to the nearest inch. However, that seems like an incredible up-charge for the slight different in size. Given that you have dimensions and weight for the box, use the ups.com shipping estimate tool to see if you were grossly overcharged. If so, open a claim with UPS and see if they will issue a partial refund. Respectfully, Ray
The weight capacity varies with the quality and strength of tape used in assembly. Using the fibrous strapping tape I filled ours to the point where we could not lift it but only move it with a hand truck. I bought a second one to make it more manageable. If you're only moving wardrobe items and tape it well you will fill it before you reach a weight capacity,
Good Morning, I would recommend taking the box back to your local Home Depot and exchanging it for another one that has a bar. We do not sell the bars separately. The bar should come banded to the box, but sometimes in transit and time in stores the bar comes off the actual box leaving the two separated. Sorry for the inconvenience and if you have any more questions please let us know.
Yes, flattened and bundled with the hanging bar at one end.
Around 60 lb we packed.
Yes, it will.
I am so sorry I don't know. Check online, pay for them if they have them and pick them up at customer service. It's very quick and you don't pay for shipping.
Yes, usually they come with the boxes. They are usually on the side or sometimes in the bottom of the box where everything else is.
Yes, I beleve it could be. You would just need to cut the top off.
