Buying an original set box

Any ideas how I can go about buying a box of the original product? The box of my tower bridge is pretty crushed so looking to have a new one

    They are occasionally listed for sale on Bricklink. If you search for the set, it would likely be in the lower price listings.

    How come some of these boxes are listed as "new" ?

    Would it be safe for the box to be "folded" during transport?

    Flattened, perhaps, but I can't imagine any way to fold a LEGO box and not damage it.

    I've bought boxes off Bricklink before with no problems.As long as they are flattened & shipped properly they have arrived in perfect condition.They're listed as new when someone usually buys the set to part out or just want the set & don't want the box,so the box is in new condition.

    It's new.  Except for the fact that it was used.  As in folded open, filled up with stuff, tape sealed on both ends.  Shipped halfway around the world, put on at least one if not ten shelves, handled multiple times, eventually loaded into a vehicle,moved again, at which point the seals were opened,it was emptied, and then finally the box was flattened along its seams and stored. 

    But it's in new condition by bricklink standards.  :-)
