DATE: 04/24/12

Now that Amerijet (www.amerijet.com) offers small package to-door service to Mexico, we wanted to help you get the most out of this service. In this post, you’re going to get useful tips that will help you choose the perfect box for packing your shipment. By choosing the right box, your goods will be better protected as they’re transported to their destination. With that in mind, what should you look for when choosing a box for shipping to Mexico?

  • The right size—Size is an important consideration for selecting a box. Generally, you should choose a box that’s large enough to allow for 2-3 inches of space on each side of the contents in the package. This is space that you’ll fill with packing materials to further protect your shipment.
  • Ensure the box has no tears or holes—If you’re reusing an old box, verify that it doesn’t have any holes, tears, rips, or gashes in it. In other words, it should still be in like-new condition.
  • Check weight ratings—Cardboard boxes have weight ratings. You should make certain the box you plan on using can accommodate the weight of the goods you’re shipping.
