Why Your Business Should Use Custom Cardboard Boxes

Are you a business owner who regularly ships, stores or transports your products? Have you ever had to box your items, and struggled to find a box that wasn’t too big, too small, or oddly shaped? Are you an Australian small business owner? If so, then custom boxes are the ideal solution for your business!

Custom boxes offer more than durability and protection, they also help save you time and money while reducing the amount of packing fillers and subsequent waste your business needs. Gone are the days of ill-fitting boxes or packaging bags, as your business embraces all the benefits of custom cardboard boxes. At Jetbox, we offer a wide range of custom boxes and packing fillers for businesses throughout Melbourne; our expert team are here to help streamline your packing and shipping process!

As online businesses continue to boom, and we see Australian’s ordering more and more products online, your business is likely to be shipping out an increasing amount of orders. This can easily become costly, as standard sized boxes can be costly to ship, especially when you include the additional materials and space needed to fill them. At Jetbox, our custom-made boxes are designed specifically for you and your business products. Read on to find out the many benefits of custom cardboard boxes for your business!

The Benefits of Custom Boxes

  • Custom Boxes Perfectly Fit Your Items

Custom boxes take the stress out of packing your items for shipping. When you use custom boxes, you know with certainty that your items are going to fit perfectly every time. No more worrying about potential damage caused by ill-fitting boxes, leaving your items to move around during transport.

  • Saving Money with Custom Made Boxes

Using custom made boxes save you and your small business money in a number of ways. Firstly, they can be made to fit a certain shipping perimeter; meaning consistent, low cost shipping fees. They also save you money on packaging fillers such as bubble wrap, as the amount of excess space is reduced. Gone are the days of buying boxes too large, leaving you to pay a high shipping fee and using excess fillers. Custom made boxes are the perfect money saver for your small business!

  • Environmentally Friendly

Have you considered the environmental footprint left by your business? When you use custom boxes, you can guarantee the size and quantities you need, lessening the chance of wasting your boxes. It also reduces the amount of packaging fillers you use, creating less waste overall. Jetbox cardboard boxes are easily recyclable too, as well as some of our other products such as butchers paper.

  • Small MOQ with Jetbox

At Jetbox, we offer a small minimum order quantity (MOQ) for all of our custom boxes. We understand that some businesses start small, or only receive a certain number of online orders. To help cater to this, we offer a small MOQ – no matter the size or type of box, you don’t need to worry about large MOQs.

  • Better Protect Your Fragile Products with Custom Boxes

With custom boxes, your fragile items are more secure than ever. In the past, you may have relied on layers and layers of packaging to secure your items, leaving them susceptible to rolling around and becoming damaged. Custom boxes can be made in a number of cardboard types and thickness to suit your business needs, and leave little to no room for your items to move around.

Why Online Retailers Need Custom Boxes

If you own and operate an online business, you need custom boxes. Not only are our custom boxes easily customisable with stickers and other branding as your business changes and evolves, our Australian made custom boxes save you time and money into the future. Easily pack and send your boxes, with no more stress about how much shipping will cost, how many boxes to order, and if your products will arrive safely. With custom boxes, your products are better protected.

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.
