Saving Money on Shipping Costs with Custom Cardboard Boxes

Saving Money on Shipping Costs with Custom Cardboard Boxes

As the business world faces the rising cost of living, small and medium business owners need to be even smarter about finding affordable business solutions. While you may have previously found the price of buying boxes fit into your budget, there are even more affordable options – custom boxes at Jetbox. Now before you start thinking, how could custom boxes possibly be more affordable, consider all the benefits cardboard boxes provide; including decreased shipping costs.

Shipping is most often calculated by weight or box size. If you are sending items in boxes that are much too large, you are most likely paying extra on shipping – a small fee which overtime adds up. By creating a custom box that is just the right size, not only are your boxes smaller they are also lighter as a result of less protective packaging.

How to Easily Save Money on Shipping Costs

The cost of shipping is often a large part of a business’s expenses. Rising shipping costs do not help this – but we are here to help combat these rising fees. As we touched on above, shipping is calculated on weight, size or a combination of both. Custom cardboard boxes can reduce the size, as well as the weight, helping you save money instantly. Over the course of a year your business might send hundreds, or even thousands of boxes – and imagine how quickly these savings will add up.

Custom corrugated cardboard boxes can also be made in any design you like. For instance, if you want a dramatic first reveal then you can get your boxes in a Mailing Box style. If you are shipping framed items or books, then Custom Corner Cut Folder Box style of box makes packing much easier.

No more guesswork around how much bubble wrap you need, or having to fiddle with fitting your items into their box safely. Jetbox creates durable, high quality custom boxes for all businesses, and we pride ourselves on creating the best customer experience possible.

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.
