There are two different types of tests to determine the stacking strength of a box. The most popular is ECT or “Edge Crush Test.” You may also see BST, which stands for “Burst Strength Test.”
On the bottom of most boxes, you will find the results which will help you determine how much weight the box will be able to handle. Our boxes have 32 lb ECT and a 65 lb gross weight limit.
Once you have the boxes built, next you will determine what is going into each box. Fillers are used to protecting your property and making sure it doesn't move around during transit.
Once everything is packed and organized you need to tape and secure everything. After packing, gently shake the box to see if anything moves, if not it is ready to be taped shut. Spacebox Storage has a variety of different styles of tape depending on your need:
After everything is taped and secure, you can add Content Labels or “Fragile” labels for items that need careful handling.
