Pictures of Used Boxes Help Buyers and Sellers

Having pictures of boxes has been the plan since launch.  People tend to have a hard time visualizing box sizes from types and dimensions alone.  They need a point of reference – how big is the box compared to a person or a common object?  We’ve had mistakes made by both buyers and sellers because of incorrect assumptions about box sizes.

Hopefully, no more.  I am happy to say that the first batch of box pictures is up on BoxCycle and is integrated throughout the site – from listing to buying (click box name to see picture).  All boxes pictured are typical used boxes sold on the site. 

This should help sellers figure out what, say, Moving Box – Small means.  It will also help buyers who aren’t familiar with moving boxes and may think that something like a 12″ shipping box would be large enough for moving (it isn’t).
