Shipping Boxes And Their Uses

From the very first mail delivery here in Canada in 1693 to our present day age today, we have mailed and shipped our letters and packages in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Our goal is to get it from point A to point B, and we need it to arrive to its destination safely.

That’s where the Cactus Containers shipping boxes come in. Eliminate the guess work, and let Cactus Containers cater to your shipping box needs. Whether it’s heavy, fragile, large or uniquely shaped, our shipping boxes are built to accommodate exactly what you are looking for.

What do you need to ship? Here are a few shipping box examples:

Is it a bicycle? Bicycles are large and uniquely shaped. We recommend a full overlap carton shipping box simply because it is especially resistant to rough handling. It is ideal for items that are tall in height and have narrow widths.

Is it a musical instrument such as a guitar or violin? Although guitars and violins are both fragile and uniquely designed, shipping it with the correct shaped shipping box will assure a safe and secure delivery. For added protection, custom foam inserts shaped precisely to the contour of your musical instrument will cradle and withstand any bumpy handling that may occur.

Is it a very heavy furniture or appliance? We recommend using a double cover (DC) shipping box. This is perfect for very heavy items that would be too difficult to lower into other type of boxes. Because of its bottom cover, it allows you to place your very heavy item into the shipping box with ease.

Is it for your entire business or household? Give us the exact dimension, whether it’s only 10, 100, or 1000 shipping boxes, and we will be sure to provide not only the accurate measurement, but the precise shipping box shape, cardboard strength and structure according to your requirements.

These are but a few examples, and the possibilities are endless. Ship your items with ease and let Cactus Containers customize your shipping box needs. For free estimates, call 1-888-776-8000 or email
