How to build a box
If every item was the same size, box-building would be replaced by box-buying. But with a million combination of products in each shipment, we never seem to need the same box twice. So we have become expert box-builders. First you start with a giant piece of cardboard. You measure and then cut out the unnecessary parts to end up with a template. Using a rolling creasing tool you indent the cardboard so it’s able to bend into shape. Then you bend it into shape. Sometimes you don’t even have to put mobile home parts into the box if you just build the box around the parts. In this case it’s a mobile home tub with a box that took shape around it. Cut out the shape of a lid from another piece of cardboard. Pack material around the product to keep it safe - remember at 4am your box will be in the hands of a grouchy dock worker who doesn’t care if you’re shipping pillows from Indestructaville or vases from the Ming dynasty. Use tape along the way to hold the box in place, but finish off with a banding tool for a ratcheted, unmovable hold.
