You’ve probably noticed that some of the large cardboard boxes are actually constructed differently than others. They tend to be more durable and can hold more weight without breaking down or bending too much in the process. That’s because they’re made with corrugated fiberboard instead of standard cardboard, which tends to be thinner and weaker by comparison. In order to get the most out of your boxes, check out these three tips on packing boxes properly so you can make sure your items arrive safely at their destination!
1) The goal of packing boxes
When packing boxes, you have a few goals in mind: protect whatever is inside, make sure that it doesn’t move around too much, and make sure that nothing falls out or breaks. You want your items protected and secure so that they arrive at their destination safely. When it comes to shipping a high-value item such as a package of high-end electronics or expensive jewelry, you need to pack your boxes with extra care and consideration. Once people start opening up your package (and by people we mean custom agents) they have access to whatever’s inside; in some cases, there are even special inspections where people unwrap every single item in order to inspect them more closely.
2) What Are You Packing?
A lot of people don’t realize that there is a right way and a wrong way to pack boxes. These tips will help ensure your merchandise reaches its destination safely and quickly. They are also good reminders for how you should be packing items at home, especially when it comes time to move. Here are three tips: 1) Pack heavy items down low, not high up in a box. Heavy items exert pressure downward onto boxes, so make sure they aren’t stacked on top of each other as it may cause them to collapse and crush lighter objects below them.
3) Which is best for your needs?
Use corrugated boxes or cardboard shipping boxes: Both types of shipping containers are made from recycled material and can be used over and over again. However, while corrugated is usually reserved for larger products, shipping containers tend to be a better option for transporting smaller items. Also, keep in mind that these containers are designed to protect packages during transit; if your package gets roughed up during delivery, it’s probably not the box’s fault.
