Too Many Boxes, Not Enough Time?

find-a-box-size

When you spend any amount of time working in the Sales office at Davpack, you quickly find that the most common question you’re asked is something along the lines of: Do you have any cardboard boxes measuring this long by this wide by this high?

Now, all of our boxes are on the website, with internal dimensions, but we’ve divided them into different groups, so that those looking for a particular style can find them more quickly. And, quite frankly, if we did just put every single one onto a single page and have done, it would be one very intimidating page – we have, after all, an awful lot of boxes from which to choose.

Introducing…The Davpack Easy Box Finder
We’ve pulled together 935 of our boxes (at time of writing, but that number is almost sure to rise again soon!) – that includes our standard 0201 single and double wall boxes and most of our postal boxes, plus all those ones with lids and flat ones and tall ones and long ones and so on – and given you the means to narrow them down based on your ideal length, width and height.

If you click here, you should see exactly what I mean.

So, for example, if your dream box was one measuring 310 x 210 x 70mm, you could start by selecting all our boxes with a length between 300 and 399mm. That immediately narrows our choice from 935 to 190.

Next, from those 190, we select boxes with a width of between 200 and 299mm. We’re now down to 121.

Finally, from that 121, we select those with a height of up to 99mm. That’s got us down to a far more manageable 28.

Scroll down and we quickly find some very good options:
One of our Econopost postal boxes (APPB13) measures 310 x 215 x 80mm – that’s pretty good!

It does come in a pack of 50, though, and if you don’t need that many boxes, how about a pack of 10 Colompac crash lock boxes (ACP141205) measuring 313 x 235 x 74mm?

Finally, if you can spare 5mm under on the length, there’s always one of our single wall boxes (ASW192), which comes in at 305 x 215 x 80mm.

With so many sizes to choose from – and, after all, we do have probably the biggest range of in-stock cardboard boxes available online in the UK – chances are that you’ll find something near enough to be suitable.

Of course, if you can’t the right box, and you don’t mind waiting a few extra days, there’s always our custom cardboard boxes service – your size, your specification, your quantity, usually delivered in just 7-10 working days.

Incidentally, just because we’ve introduced an online box finder, it doesn’t mean we don’t want you to call in and talk to us anymore – so, if you prefer the human touch, our friendly and knowledgeable Sales team is here from 8.30 till 5, Monday to Friday. Just call us on 01332 821200.
