Is Kübox safe for international shipping?
Yes. Made mostly of paper, Kübox crates are not subject to ISPM export regulations, and therefore don’t need the special treatment that wood crates require to prevent contamination. Additionally, Kübox shipping containers can be opened and resealed for customs examinations without the need for any crowbars or potentially dangerous tools.
How do I build a Kübox shipping box?
Our shipping crates take only one person to assemble, with no need for special tools. Your Kübox containers arrive with all parts nested inside for simple transport and storage. To assemble, remove the corner hubs and open the lid. Remove the 4 small cardboard spacers from each corner, and take the end-walls and panels out of the container. Insert the end-walls into the base of the
Kübox and fit the panels into the base and the end-walls of the Kübo container. Pack your items inside the assembled Kübox, securing them with padding materials. Close the Kübox by placing the lid on top of the 4 cardboard walls, place the four corner hubs on the top lid, and secure the lid by inserting two plastic pins per corner hub. Your Kübox is now ready for shipping.
How do I keep my Kübox crates closed? Do I need tape to reinforce for shipping?
Once the Kübox is assembled, two resistant plastic pins are inserted into each of the corner hubs to secure the box together. No tape is required.
Can Kübox help reduce the risk of injuries?
Kübox’s modular design allows for easy assembling and handling. There are no splinters, nails or clips, and no crowbar is required to open the container, reducing the risk of injuries.
Can Kübox be used for storage?
Before being assembled, Kübox knocks down to just 7 inches high, therefore you can store up to 10 Kübox crates in the same space used by one large wood. After being assembled, Kübox can be used multiple times for shipping and for storage.
Are Kübox crates reusable?
Kübox is specifically designed to be used more than once, enabling an eco-friendly alternative for shipping crates. From all the wood containers and pallets produced every year, only up to 27% get recycled. Most of them end up in landfills (59%) and the rest get combusted (14%). This is why we believe reusability is a higher calling than recyclability.
Are Kübox containers waterproof?
Kübox containers are not waterproof, but using plastic stretch wrap can make them water resistant.
