Box Quality

Our boxes come in various qualities or flute options, which determine how strong a box will be.

A Flute determines the thickness of the cardboard wall of a box, which in turn will determine how much stacking strength a box has - the thicker the wall is, the stronger it will be.  Remember that if the item/s you are wanting to pack will support its/their own weight you will get away with a less strong and therefore cheaper box. (If you are in any doubt ask for a sample first).
