    I am looking for a source to get boxes for my #10 cans. I know when purchasing, the cans come in a box that hold 6 cans. I disposed of the boxes and now that I am moving, I need boxes to store the cans neatly in. I saw the measurements on another website, 18.5" x 12.5" x 7.5". Has anyone purchased case boxes for #10 cans lately? I need the boxes now, so if I can get shipped quickly or pick-up locally that would be the best.

    It's an odds on bet that your local supermarket carries #10 cans for commercial customers. Or, maybe the pizza shop that buys tom sauce by the case?

    @Brokor if you have any of the #10 can boxes, could you measure to make sure those measurements that I posted are correct. I measured the cans and mathematically I am questioning those measurements that I posted.

    I did exactly that, and measured the external dimensions because I do not remove my cans *unlike some people* ;)
    The link I gave should work, but you have to order in bulk (15-25 boxes) still reasonable. U-Line measures dimensions from the internal dimensions of the box. Should be 18"x12"x8" This is what I would use, personally 18 x 12 x 8" 275 lb. Double Wall Corrugated Boxes S-4896 - Uline

    I would not have took them out of the box but I had a spot between the wall and a floor to ceiling shelf. I could stack them 5 deep from floor to ceiling. Most never noticed, it was the best hidden in plain sight spot.

    Once you have confirmed the necessary dimensions, try a U-haul store! They sell very heavy duty boxes for movers. It's been years but I seem to remember not being outraged by the cost! Best of luck on your move!:D

    Since I got the measurements from B, I found the boxes on Amazon. I got free delivery with prime.
