Vancouver Box Manufacturer Offers Simple Damage Reduction Tip

Vancouver box manufacturer offers easy advice to reduce the costs of shipping damages

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - December 14, 2016) - As a Vancouver box manufacturer and printer, Racer Boxes creates boxes for clients who ship all kinds of items across the country and around the world. Reducing the cost of shipping damage is a problem for virtually any business. However, there is an incredibly simple solution that can significantly improve the chances that your goods arrive unscathed -- a fragile notification. For more, go to:

Clearly printing fragile, along with key symbols and instructions, is the first step to reduce shipping damages. In some circumstances, you may also want to specify the contents, such as glass.

Often people shipping your product will handle objects according to the perceived contents. VanMoof, a company that creates technologically advanced bicycles, made news earlier this year, when they came up with a crafty trick to stop their bikes from being damage -- they began printing "Large TVs" on the shipping boxes.

Just like that, shipping damage to the bikes deceased by 70-80%.

Bex Rad, VanMoof's creative director, said in a post on Medium that, "Your covetable products, your frictionless website, your killer brand -- they all count for nothing when your delivery partner drops the ball."

Although not everyone may agree with the strategy, Racer Boxes is a box manufacturer that can build and print something that will keep your contents safe.
