R/C Boxes

Just a quick question, What does everybody do with the boxes that their cars come in? Is there any sense in keeping them? Is the car worth more if you sell it with a box? It seems like the boxes are taking over my hobby storage room.

+1 on keeping the boxes (and manuals). Resale value is higher and I like reading over and over those printed in the box.

I tend to keep them and put stuff in them for storage, just keep parts for that same car in it or tire storage so my pit box doesn't all clutered up.

try corrugating your boxes if they are taking up too much space......this way you can have 10 boxes take up the space of 1....if that
