Are You Selling on eBay and Amazon?

At Express Cartons we partner with many businesses that sell directly to customers, by providing a wide range of either standard sized postal boxes, or bespoke packaging items.

Getting the postal packaging right for businesses selling on eBay and Amazon is important, for a number of reasons.  Firstly, packaging is a cost to your business, and therefore something you need to minimise, especially given the fees charged by eBay and Amazon already eat into your profitability.

In addition to cost, availability of packaging is vital.  If you are running any kind of business that ships items frequently, you do not want to suddenly run out packaging material as it will directly affect your ability to fulfill your orders.

With our 20 years experience in business, we know how to help companies deal with theses challenges in the following ways

Selecting the Right Size Boxes for Packing

Conventional wisdom says that you should get the biggest moving house boxes available. Big removal boxes allow you to pack everything you have into as fewer boxes as possible, right?

There’s certainly an argument about getting large house moving boxes. Perhaps the biggest size you will need is an 18 x 18 x 18 shipping box. These boxes are ideal for packing bedding, for example. Bedding is often voluminous, but light – and that is the key to which size boxes for moving house, because if you filled a 18 x 18 x 18 box with all your books, there is a very good chance that you – or your removal company – will not be able to lift it,
