How to measure a cardboard box?

We have many different types of cardboard boxes from single wall and double wall to export and postal boxes.All our cardboard box measurements are displayed as follows:

Length x Width x Height.

Our sizes shown are always the internal dimensions, which makes it easier when choosing the box you require as you will know the minimum box size you need.

Length – Take the base of the cardboard box and measure the longest side from corner to corner.

Width
 – Take the base of the cardboard box and measure the shortest side from corner to corner.

Height
 – Take the side of the cardboard box and measure from the base to the top.

To determine what size cardboard box you will need, firstly take a tape measure and measure the size of the items you wish to box up. This will give you your minimum box requirements.

If you are packing more than one item in one box, don’t forgot which way up you want to stack them in the box. Also remember which side you called length, width and height so you don’t struggle when you come to pack them.

You might also want to consider if you need to protect your items with either bubble wrap or some loose fill chips, so it cushions your items during transit.

If you have any queries please feel free to call one of our sales team on 0845 8800 355.
