Why You Need Custom Boxes for Your Business

Reason 1: Custom Boxes to Help you in Cutting Costs

Custom boxes can help you save money in a variety of ways. Firstly, by creating a box that perfectly fits the dimensions of your items there is no need for excess packaging materials such as bubble wrap, shredded paper and the like. Less packaging materials = more money in your pocket!

Secondly, you can create boxes that fit into cheaper shipping price brackets. If your courier charges based on size, then this is a perfect opportunity to review these size parameters and design your box within a cheaper, or even the cheapest, size bracket.

Lastly, custom boxes can be made with your desired cardboard thickness, and in the size most suited to your specific product. This means better protection, helping to prevent losses and damages due to faulty or flimsy boxes. Australia faces extreme weather on a regular basis, and you need boxes that can withstand these conditions. Save money on refunds and replacements by investing in high quality, durable custom made cardboard boxes!

Reason 2: Time is Money – Save Time and Invest back into your business with Custom Boxes

Custom boxes help to free up not only online time during your everyday, but also time spent shopping and choosing your packaging boxes. When you have one or two reliable and consistently sized boxes, you can create a routine: you know exactly how much packaging you’ll need each time, how long it’ll take to pack and how quickly you can assemble the box itself.

Reason 3: Increase Efficiency

As mentioned above, custom boxes can help you easily plan and prep your orders. Store your boxes flat pack for easy storage, set up a packaging station with your custom made boxes and suddenly preparing orders is more efficient than ever!

The ordering process also becomes easier once you know your box measurements, as ordering through Jetbox is an efficient and simple process!

Reason 4: Improve your Customer Experience

By providing your customers with high quality, durable boxes not only do you ensure the perfect first impression you also help build a positive brand awareness. At Jetbox, we offer custom made boxes with printed designs – allowing you to reach more people simply by having your brand on your box! This printed design can be a logo, a message, art work – anything you want.

How To Pack Your TV Box

We understand that packing TV’s without the original packaging can be a stressful task.

Every Jetbox TV will be supplied with more than enough bubble wrap to wrap any size TV!

To put your TV box together, follow these instructions:

  1. Please start by taping the bottom of the box – pre-fold the flaps to make it easier to close.

  2. Use a blanket to cover your TV before applying bubble wrap.

  3. Lay it down (if the manufacturer recommendations specify that you can) and wrap it in bubble horizontally.

  4. Then wrap again vertically ensuring the corners, front and back are covered well. Tape up the bubble so that it doesn’t come undone.

  5. You can then slide the TV into the box, make sure it fits snugly and close the box with some strong tape.

Bulky Item Delivery Terms & Conditions

Some of our products are large, heavy and bulky and require extra care or special shipping. If your order requires a forklift we will advise before delivery, and if no forklift is available upon delivery a surcharge will apply.

Bulky deliveries that require hand delivery (but no forklift) to the first floor or above and require stair or lift access will also be subject to a delivery surcharge. If you advise at checkout that your delivery is above the ground floor, we will be in touch regarding the surcharge. This surcharge is from $50 per pallet.

Over & Under Runs

Manufacturing processes require machinery to work at quite high speeds. During production, some sheets may be damaged and need to be replaced. In some instances, we cannot replace the sheets at that time and you will be met with a slightly lower Quantity than ordered. This amount will be credited to you.

In most cases though, there will be overruns, as the machinery cannot come to a complete stop in an instant – we require a gradual slow down, which will give us more cartons produced, than what are ordered. These overruns are payable by the client. And taking them also helps save on recycling, which is more sustainable and better for the Environment in the long term.

If you require EXACT Quantities, we may have to make some boxes in a different grade than ordered, to make up your order in the Exact Qty required. These requests will also Incur higher unit costs. This cannot be avoided, as we must consider the recycling processes and costs involved, in helping to reduce our carbon footprint.
