Mailing Box

Our Mailing Boxes are one of our most popular packaging options. Made using our White 3E board, our Mailing Boxes, also known as Custom Die Cut Gift Boxes, are perfect for shipping a range of items! The standard stock mailing box has an internal size of 220 x 155 x 76mm so you can easily package and ship any item of small to medium size. We commonly see small businesses use these boxes for shipping jewellery, books, glasses, candles, small gifts, and more! We can also custom make these boxes to suit your requirements – you can get an instant quote online here!

The inner pieces of the box are self securing, allowing extra protection and security for your items. Don’t forget to protect your items with bubble wrap or bio-fill during transit!

Regular Slotted Carton

As the name implies, this style of box is what comes to mind when people think of a moving or packaging box. With flaps on top and bottom, these boxes are easy to assemble and provide a lot of durability. Ideal for transporting large or heavy items, Regular Slotted Carton boxes are convenient, easy to store and simple to assemble and make the shipping portion of your business a breeze!

Jetbox offers Regular Slotted Carton boxes in any custom size to suit your needs. Available online now.

50 Litre Carton

Our 50 Litre Carton boxes are as strong as they come! Used by businesses and home movers, these boxes are sized at 465 x 360 x 300mm and can be purchased individually or in bulk. One of the larger boxes we have available, our 50 Litre Carton boxes fold in the same way as a Regular Slotted Carton box making it easy to assemble.

If your business ships out large items, or big quantities of products, then our 50 Litre Carton boxes are perfect!

80 Litre Carton

Is a 50 Litre Carton not big enough for your business needs? Look no further than our Australian made 80 Litre Carton Boxes! Made using the highest quality corrugated cardboard, these boxes come in at 580 x 385 x 335mm and are one of our most popular boxes by far.

Durable, sturdy and easy to assemble and prepare – if you ship large quantities of products, or create uniquely shaped items that require extra space and padding, an 80 Litre Carton box will protect your items no matter where they travel.

Corner Cut Folder Box

Corner Cut Folder boxes are ideal for shipping items that are long and flat. Some examples are frames, sheets of paper, artwork and other items that simply don’t need a tall box. If you are shipping anything that is shallow or flat packed, a custom made Corner Cut Folder Box will provide all the necessary protection.

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.
