    Transporting boxed coins

    Ok, newbie question here,

    I am about to get my first box of halves and I was beginning to worry since the box is really heavy and bulky and I am not as strong as I would love to be. Also it's one thing to carry a box of nickels quite another to carry a box of halves. I am wondering from the bank to the credit union how are other CRHrs transporting their boxes. I was thinking maybe dufflebag or luggage but that would make more than a couple of people's interest perk up. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hugs and Smiles,
    Garoulady

    I use a small black nylon "helmet" bag.... folded up in my hand when empty, just big enough to hold a box of halves. I also place my bag of coins in it to dump. I use the merchant window, and at my usual dump banks it is on the end by the entry / exit door. Even when "full", I'm not walking through the entire bank with my non-descript black nylon bag. I keep the bag zipped up, and when I'm next in line, I unzip. (the bag) Take the unzipped bag up to the window, and only then do I take the coin bag out. I only do 1 box at a time, so this has worked for me... One of the handles is starting to tear, so time to find a new bag... HH

    I carry them to my car. A box of halves weighs 25 pounds.

    Messenger bag when I am walking coin around. Weekends I use my car, as I am driving around the burbs, weekdays I am trekking from one bank to the next in the city.

    What Namster said. 25 pounds is not a lot.

    Start exercising more. I know 5 ft tall girls that can carry 2 box's. actually one little teller picked up 2 500 dollar bags I was dumping with ONE HAND! That was pretty impressive.

    Being a cashier for over 20 years can wear a person out. I have severe tennis elbow and carple tunnel in my left arm and having carple tunnel in my right arm. I can carry 25 pounds but when I get those nerve pain in my left hand. ::hisses in pain:: feels like someone is shoving a hot needle down the length of my ring and middle finger and I can't grab stuff with my hand. Right now I do a lot of work with my right arm.

    I do love the idea with the helmet bag. I am thinking about taking some old blue jeans, doubling them up and sewing my own carry bag. Figured that would work. Would have to hand sew it but that would be something to do while I wait for my coins to come. ::goes searching for patterns::

    Thanks for the ideas.

    I take one of the canvas bags in and put two loomis boxes in it. Fits perfect but doesn't actually help carrying them other than keeping the boxes together. When I had to reroll my coins and kept them in the original box for transport the bags helped out a lot keeping everything together.

    Talk to TallGuyBry.

    He created a boxed coin caddy a few months back.
    It might help you out.

    There's two kinds of people in this world;

    People who make excuses and don't get things done...

    And people that get things done.

    Pick one.

    Sincerely,
    Guy who watches his 5'1" Fiancee carry $1k in coin like its nothing.
