We advertise Any Size, Any Quantity and will provide it (within certain physical limitations, we can’t make an RSC (regular box) 2000 x 2000 x 2000, though we could make up a box that would enclose this size making it in multiple pieces hand gluing them together).
Though the feedback I get is that in lower quantities the boxes are more expensive than the customers expect so let’s set some expectations.
RSC – Regular Slotted Container
The magic figure is 250 square meters. Below that board area we use stock board. As we use the whole sheet the pricing is based on the efficiency of how much of this sheet we use and the cost to set up and run the machine. The benefit of using stock sheet is that we can make them fast when required and you can get the quantity you want. The down side is that they are more expensive than boxes above 250 square meters where we order the board made to size.
As a guide the following boxes have the quantity required achieve 250 square meters of board.
- 100 x 100 x 100 2500
- 200 x 200 x 200 750
- 300 x 300 x 300 325
- 400 x 400 x 400 185
- 500 x 500 x 500 125
By no means are regular boxes made out of stock board uneconomical as a large proportion of the boxes we make are from stock board. Note that 100 boxes are far more economical that 50 and 50 better than 20 and many people ask us for 1 but when quoted we get few takers.
There are always many ways to attack a problem and our stock range often gets our customers out of trouble or satisfies a need.
At Boxes To Go we are happy to help.
