Yes, you may purchase your own boxes if our kit will not arrive in time for you to pack up. Keep in mind that the higher ECT and burst rate (see examples below) for the boxes you are buying the better they will hold up to loading, unloading and stacking them while in storage.
Shipping Box Requirements:
You may purchase shipping boxes wherever they are sold. Please note that moving boxes are not adequate for shipping needs.
When using your own boxes you will need to calculate the boxes total inches and the billable weight to ensure the boxes are within the UPS guidelines, and freight is billed correctly. If you underestimate the weight and dimensions of you boxes there will be additional charges assessed.
- Billable weight can be calculated by doing LxWxH/166
- Total cubic inches can be calculated by doing L+ (2x Width) + (2x Height).
Note: Pricing will vary for shipping depending on the dimensions and weight of each box you use.
