You'll probably have to buy a box if you can't find one. That said, our village recycling happens at open bins behind the city hall, so if I need a box I go look in the bins to see what is there already before I head to the Container Store or U-Haul to buy a box. But considering availability, I would suggest you go to U-Haul and find one of their flat TV or mirror boxes and ship in that. UPS vs USPS vs FedEx, do you have online accounts with any of them? You can get a discount by paying online and printing the label yourself. The next bet is to pay online and go to a shipping store and let them print the label you've already paid for and ship for you. Or just take it to the post office and send it the lightest rate. I think UPS can sometimes beat the post office on those prices. It's the size, not the weight, that will bring up the cost on this.

Be sure to pad it enough so it arrives intact after all of this work!
