For more unique shipments Parcel Room can custom make cardboard cartons and wooden crates. We make custom cartons virtually in any size and in any quantity. Whether you need one or one thousand, we can produce them in a timely manner. We are currently making cartons for customers all around the US. Making custom-sized boxes has allowed us to offer our customers reduced shipping rates, this will become more important with the new rules in place starting Jan 2015 With our machine it's quick and easy to construct cartons; we can make one box in as little as 3 minutes. Most customers can walk in and walk out with their custom made carton within a few minutes. It's always best to call ahead to make sure, as we never know when we are in the middle of of a large run. For larger orders we ask for more time. Orders can be submitted via phone, fax or the preferred method is via email. In order to determine the necessary size of your custom box, measure the contents and list the box dimensions as Length (L) x Width (W) x Depth (D), we always look at the dimensions as the inside of the box. The material we use adds @ 1/2" to each dimension, so if you need your box to finish at a specific size please make sure you tell us this. Using different types of corrugated cardboard, we can create boxes which can hold up to 120 lbs. If your shipment is heavier than this, consider ordering a crate. When regular packaging just won't do we also offer custom crating. Crating can be an option for items that cannot be packaged within corrugated cartons safely. Crates can be made on site or at our office. On site building is more costly. We try to avoid crates as this can increase the costs for a shipment by a considerable amount; we usually only proceed with crating when the value or weight requires it or if the customer requests it. Items large and small can be crated safely.
