Packaging & Shipping Tips for the Holiday Season
1. New boxes are the best, used corrugated boxes can lose 60% of their strength in one use.
2. If you want to reuse a carton, make sure the carton is fully intact, no holes, tears and has not been previously crushed.
3. On a used box make sure to remove any existing labels and addresses.
