Does anyone know whether I can ship one of those blue Rubbermaid Roughneck storage bins, either through the USPS or UPS, by simply taping it closed securely all around with duct tape? Or will they only accept a cardboard box?
I need to send a couple of pillows, a set of sheets and some miscellaneous stuff (contents of desk, cables, surge protectors, etc) that my son brought home from college because he had no place to store it over the summer. He pretty much just threw the stuff in plastic bags and stuffed it in his luggage, but he ended up with extra bags at the airport and had to pay $$ to get them home. I'd rather send them back in the Rubbermaid bin so he'll have it to store them in next summer.
I'm pretty sure UPS or FedEx will take the bin unboxed, but I don't know the postal regulations.
