Tips to Ensure Safe Shipping with Custom Boxes

Businesses know that it’s smart to invest in custom shipping boxes because of the branding benefits. While that is an excellent reason, what fewer businesses know is that custom corrugated boxes can also help better protect your product during transit. Ultimately, this saves you money by allowing you to cut down on shipping costs, spend less on void fill, receive fewer exchanges or returns, and generally improve customer satisfaction. In order to see a maximum return on investment and ship your products as safely as possible, here are a few tips for creating perfect custom wholesale boxes.

Choose the Appropriate Box Type

Build A Box offers several different box types that are best suited for different products and purposes. Custom shipping boxes are a classic choice for mailing just about anything, but we also offer mailer boxes and literature boxes that can be used for specific product types. Mailer boxes are great for subscription boxes and luxury products. If you want an elevated unboxing experience for the customer and extra product protection in transit, choose a custom mailer box. If you are frequently mailing books, documents, frames, and other narrow objects, our literature box design is perfect. Its shape and tucked edges protect literature products in transit and create a better customer experience. 

Customize Your Box Dimensions

Another effective way to ensure safe shipping is to choose custom dimensions that eliminate unnecessary space. Using boxes that are too big for your products is a hazard when shipping, as it creates more space for the product to move around and potentially be damaged in transit. Having boxes that are created specifically for your product eliminates this unnecessary space and better protects your items as they’re on their way to the consumer.

Utilize Custom Inserts

If you want to be eco-friendly and eliminate your company’s use of void fill altogether, Build A Box can create custom inserts for your product boxes. Our custom corrugated boxes and inserts are 100% recyclable so you can eliminate your use of harmful plastic void fill and styrofoam packing peanuts while enhancing your branding and customer unboxing experience. By sending us one of your products, we can create impressive custom inserts that perfectly fit your items and keep them entirely secure during the shipping process. 

Although what happens during the transit process is ultimately out of your hands, you can take extra steps to ensure that your items get to their destination safely. Customers hold the business responsible for what happens in transit, so creating custom wholesale boxes with Build A Box will save you time and money in the long-run by allowing you to safely ship your items and increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.
