Boosting Sydney Businesses

Whether you’re an established business or a start-up aiming to make a strong first impression; effective packaging solutions can be vital for success.

Packing boxes are generally cost effective, sturdy, lightweight, and their versatility is invaluable. With different sizes available, businesses can accommodate a huge range of products. And by using the appropriate packing boxes, you can optimise storage, reduce shipping costs, and improve overall efficiency.

One of the main functions of packaging is to protect products during transportation and storage. Using protective packaging materials like bubble wrap adds extra cushioning to keep your packages safe and secure and helps ensure goods reach their destinations intact. A commitment to product integrity enhances your brand’s image and builds customer trust.

Cardboard boxes and packaging are indispensable for a huge range of businesses, including manufacturers, wholesalers, warehousing and distribution, ecommerce enterprises and possibly businesses just like yours.

At Boxes for Business, we offer a wide selection of new and second hand boxes, along with a variety of packaging materials. Our range includes small mailing boxes, up to large packing boxes for bulky items, as well as packaging products like packing tape, pallet wrap and mailing envelopes.

Our products not only protect your goods, but also optimise logistics and boost your customer’s satisfaction, which can foster repeat business.  We help you stand out in a competitive marketplace, which can fuel your business growth and drive larger profits. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Make the smart choice and equip your business with the right cardboard boxes and packaging supplies today!

Sustainable Solutions for a Greener Future

In our rapidly evolving world, where commerce and consumption thrive, it’s imperative for us to pause and consider the environmental impact of our actions. Fortunately, there’s a simple yet effective way for businesses to have a significant positive influence: embracing eco-friendly cardboard boxes and packaging. By practising the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle, we can collectively contribute to a healthier planet.

Shipping boxes, which are an essential part of many business’s operations, play a significant role in this endeavour. Cardboard is made from renewable resources and is both recyclable and biodegradable. And by choosing packing boxes made from recycled materials, or embracing reuse by using second hand boxes, businesses can further reduce waste, conserve resources, and actively reduce their carbon footprint.

What’s more, eco-friendly packaging alternatives such as biodegradable bubble wrap or void fill are popular choices for cushioning and protection Australia wide. By opting for these alternatives, businesses can effectively safeguard their products while being kinder to the environment.

Adopting the use of eco-friendly cardboard boxes and packaging not only demonstrates a commitment to sustainability but also resonates with environmentally conscious consumers. By aligning your business with sustainable practices, you can enhance your brand reputation and attract like-minded customers. Just imagine, environmentally friendly options can be both a responsible and profitable choice.

Make a conscious decision today and be part of the solution, where business and sustainability go hand in hand and help create a greener and more sustainable future for generations to come.

Together, we can make a difference.

Choosing the right product FAQ

How do you measure a box?

We go by internal dimensions in order of Length x Width x Height.

If the box was assembled, the length refers to the longest internal horizontal measurement, the width is the shorter horizontal measurement and the height refers to the inside vertical measurement of the box. Easy, isn’t it?

Will your boxes be strong enough to pack my items?

It depends on what you’re packing, and how you’re storing and sending the boxes out, once packed. In general,
(a) Sturdier cardboard will provide more vertical support.
(b) Thicker cardboard will provide more side impact protection.
(c) Packing boxes to their capacity reduces the risk of boxes crushing when weight is placed on top. Some of our packaging supplies, such as void fill and butchers paper, are capable of filling empty space.
(d) If packing solid items, such as cans, they can support themselves and will therefore provide extra support for the box, if other boxes are stacked on top.
(e)The more boxes, or pallets of boxes, you’re stacking on top of each other, the stronger the box needs to be.
To make your choice easier we’ve given a rough guide on our website as to the strength of each box, as well as the thickness of the corrugated cardboard and number of layers of corrugation. This information should help, wouldn’t you say?

Are your second hand boxes in good condition?

Yes. Many second hand cardboard boxes have been used before, so they will have some wear in comparison to a brand new box. However, all our second hand boxes go through our careful selection process to remove any boxes not suitable for resale. This helps ensure the boxes you receive are in good condition and should help ease any uncertainty you might otherwise have had.

Do you have any plain second hand boxes?

Yes, sometimes we do. Alternatively, we classify some of our second hand boxes as ‘Almost Plain’, which usually means they only have a small code or a label on the side. Would you like to know how to make some of these boxes appear totally plain? Simply put your own label over the top of the existing label and it looks the same as a plain box. All our new cardboard boxes are plain, so you can also choose from any of them.

Can I come over and see what boxes you have available?

Yes, we’re here to help. However, to save time we recommend browsing our website first, to narrow down what you need. We suggest making an appointment, or calling before you come, to make sure someone is available to help you. We’ll happily attend to you as soon as possible but sometimes we’re busy performing other duties and we don’t want you to have to wait around too long.

Do you have any boxes that will pack a certain size or quantity of my products?

It’s important to know the size of what you’re packing. Are you able to stack your items together, in the way you want them to go inside the box? If so, measure the outer perimeter and that will give a good indication of the size of the box you need. You can then check out our website to help you find the right box.

We can't find a box to fit our goods, do you have any other products that might do the job?

Yes, we have a range of packaging supplies suitable for packing many items. Would you like to find out more? Check out our product pages; in particular our supplies on a roll, such as single face corrugated cardboard, protective foam or bubblewrap which are great for effectively wrapping and protecting a variety of items.

Our current packaging tape keeps peeling off our boxes. Do you have any tape that will stick?

Most likely. Some cheaper tapes don’t stick well to cardboard, especially recycled cardboard, because the adhesive in the tape is lower quality. This can be very frustrating. It’s likely that the tape you currently have is a cheaper variety. We recommend choosing a packaging tape with premium quality rubber solvent adhesive, which sticks much better to cardboard. It may cost more initially, but you’ll have far fewer problems in the long run.
