Racer Boxes In Vancouver: Tips for packing the Perfect Package

As a wholesale box manufacturer in Vancouver, the team at Racer Boxes knows how crucial it is to pack a box properly. After all, businesses not only need to ensure their merchandise arrives safely, shipping costs can quickly add up due to size and weight.

Shop before you ship

Depending on the shipping service you use, different costs may apply for certain products, such as books, DVDs, or manuscripts. Also, most offer special rates for small businesses provide discounts for shipping and other services. It’s important to find what works best, especially if volumes are high and growing. Note that Canada Post doesn’t have residential surcharges, something that might be significant to a company doing regular business in such areas.

The right box for the job

The bigger the box, the more it will cost. Shaving a few centimetres off each side can drop the cost by up to 10% depending on the carrier. But remember the box can’t be too small either. Without room for packing materials, a product can arrive damaged. The trick is to find a box that is just right, leaving enough room on all sides for cushioning.

Pack smart

When it comes to packing material, not all products are created equal. A fragile vase will need more packing material on all sides than a book. The former might require extra padding on all sides, while the latter might just need a bit of bubble wrap. Take this into account when choosing the right sized box.

Get organized

Sometimes size can be reduced through efficient organization. For, example, if multiple boxes need to fit inside a larger one, play with solutions to manage space—don’t just toss everything inside.

Fold to save space

While it’s essential to have shipping materials on hand when necessary, a surplus of packing materials can impinge on space—or even require separate storage. This can eat up any savings on wholesale purchases, which is why Racer Boxes offers small-batch delivery as an option.
