Things to Look for in a Wholesale Box Manufacturer

So you’re starting to look at buying cardboard boxes, and need to choose a wholesale manufacturer. When starting to look, you need to keep an eye out for a few things. Firstly, they should have an easy to use website that clearly states the products and prices. Secondly, are they easily contactable for questions and queries? If not, consider how you will work with them. And lastly, a website with an information page or news page is a big green flag. These businesses care about helping educate all business owners and are both knowledgeable and passionate.

How to Choose the Right Cardboard Boxes for Your Business

One of the most important parts of choosing your perfect box is price. Getting a quote can be time-consuming, and require some back and forth. This isn’t the case with Jetbox. When you visit our website, you have access to our free online custom cardboard calculator. It’s available 24/7 and allows you to instantly update your measurements and quantities to find the perfect quote to fit your budget. 

If you have a more complex order or one of especially large quantity, we will work with you to swiftly provide a quote that suits your needs. 

When choosing the box design, there are a few things to ask yourself. What are you going to use your boxes for? Are they going to be stored for a long time, shipped, used to create a positive brand image, or all of the above? Your answers will determine the box style, cardboard grade, and other crucial factors. Jetbox has a wide range of boxes to suit any need.

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.
