Corrugated boxes are made of three sheets of thick paperboard, which makes them different than the cardboard ones. These boxes are more convenient for shipping or moving, as they can withstand different content during transport. Not only that, but they are also reusable and recyclable thanks to the durability of the material.Cardboard boxes are made out of thick paper, and they are not necessarily meant for shipping. You can see this type of material is most often used as food packaging or for greeting cards.

There is not much of a visible difference between these three corrugated boxes, but rather, it is only the reason why we use them:
You should ship with wooden boxes on a pallet when you have items that are oddly shaped or more fragile such as plants, pianos or motorcycles. This way, you will ensure that the shipment stays protected during transit.
You can ship one or multiple plastic boxes, inside a corrugated box, previously prepared according to our guidelines.
You can ship multiple boxes either by placing different orders, or within one order, or even on a pallet. You can read more information about this here.
Depending on the size of the boxes you can opt for packing them on a bigger box and send them as one single package, or place them on a pallet if the boxes are too bulky and heavy. This option is suitable when all the boxes or packages will get sent to the same delivery address. Alternatively, you can place an order and select more than 1 box, indicating for each its weight and size.
This depends on the type of service and the courier company performing the shipping. However, in general, with the Standard Shipping Service, the package should not weight more than 30 kg and 70 kg with the Express Shipping Service. For more information regarding these services, we invite you to read our dedicated pages to standard or express shipping.
When using the Envelope service provided by Eurosender, the size of the envelope can be up to 2 kg and 35 x 28 cm.
It is important to have one label on the outside, and on a flat surface of the package. You can have an additional label printed and placed inside the box, in case the outside one gets damaged during transit.
The box should be neither too big, nor too small. If you place small items in an overly large box and miss to fill the voids accordingly, you increase the chances of damage.
