Empty IPAD boxes
Empty IPAD boxes Anonymous 04/21/14(Mon)16:54 UTC+1 No.628155 Report

Dear /diy/ community,

I have about 2000 of empty iPad 2/mini boxes (pic related).

Can anyone please recommend something to do with them besides throwing them away.

I've tried selling then on eBay for $20 a piece and eBay keeps pulling my listing.

Any ideas are highly appreciated.

Sell them as a lot of Boxes. 100 iPad boxes for $50 or something, Make shipping extra but be willing to ship anywhere in the world. Put a picture of one of the boxes opened with "This is just an empty box, as it says" in paper in it or something.

resellers would be looking to buy in bulk so
maybe not $20
Sell them in bulk for $20 for ten and you'll unload them fast..

take off a buy it now price and list as a no reserve auction, greedy scum.

Also >>628164, no one is buying the boxes to increase the value of a used electronic. They purchase them and then shrink wrap refurbs to scam retards into thinking they're buying new.

Scumbags that put rocks, bricks, pieces of wood, or 'tablets' of paper into the boxes, shrink-wrap them, and sell them to idiots as iPads, that's who. Selling the empty boxes is essentially enabling criminals to be criminals.

Do as the liberals do.

Throw them into a pile, call it art, and sell it through an art exhibit.

If you can come up with some bullshit excuse as to how it represents "current social paradigms", then you can probably get a few hundred thousand dollars for it.

i burn alot of the rough fraiming lumber and some other stuff but some of the " nicer" woods i would like to try to do stuff with
like today i got a barrel full of white cedar 350 ish peaces of 1/2' by 1 1/4' by 9' and another peaces that are 9 to 19 inches long was wondering if anyone had any ideas in general or if i should just keep burning it

you missed the point completely... do you ever watch those reality shows whee people buy storage units that people failed to pay? they bid on whats inside. if there was a bunch of ipad boxes in there the person who won the bid for the unit would assume they are full.. but wind up with an expensive collection of empty boxes. because they would bid high for it... the point is, it would be a major trollling for whoever bought it

fuck.. why are people so dense

This is not usually the case. In most states the renter can only keep enough for past due rent and fees. If there is extra they have to give it back to the rentee. If they can't find the rentee it goes to the state for "safe keeping".

Here is a typical example of the applicable law, this one is from indiana.

IC 26-3-8-15
Place of sale; owner as buyer; proceeds of sale
Sec. 15. (a) Any sale of the personal property under this chapter shall be held at the self-service storage facility or, if that facility is not a suitable place for a sale, at the suitable place nearest to where the property is held or stored.
(b) The owner may buy the personal property at any sale under this chapter.
(c) An owner may satisfy the owner's lien from the proceeds of a sale under this chapter. If the proceeds of a sale under this chapter exceed the amount of the owner's lien, the owner shall hold the balance for delivery, upon demand, to the renter. If the renter does not claim the balance of the proceeds within one (1) year after the sale, the balance shall be treated as unclaimed property under IC 32-34-1.
As added by P.L.265-1987, SEC.1. Amended by P.L.31-1995, SEC.6; P.L.2-2002, SEC.81.

Translation - unclaimed property (profits) from an auction after 1 year are turned over to the State.
Nothing is stopping the storage company from piling up the late fees for many months before sending it to auction if they suspect the locker has a high value of if they have an excess of vacancies.
