• Always use a heavy-duty corrugated box when shipping items. Never use gift boxes or shoe boxes that can be easily crushed.
  • Don't wrap packages in paper or bind them with twine – this can cause them to get caught in conveyor belts or to be ripped during handling. In fact, UPS will not accept packages wrapped in paper or bound in twine.
  • All of The Container Store's packing tape's are approved by UPS and the U.S. Postal Service.
  • When taping a box, seal the bottom with 2" box tape, tape across the length of the box, and seal the end seams. For extra reinforcement, wrap the tape around the girth of the box two or three times.
  • A tape dispenser makes quick work of large jobs.
