We purchase gaylord boxes of all varieties, and make a point of duly compensating our clients for their products. The only requirement that we hold is that the boxes have to be in usable condition. Simply fill out the seller form below, and we will be in touch in the very near future!
Gaylord Boxes and Beyond
Our products can vary greatly in price depending on our customers’ needs. The cheapest and most abundant options are the 2 and 3 wall gaylord boxes. These boxes are made primarily out of recycled materials, and are capable of carrying between 500-1,000 pounds. While they are the most inexpensive option, they are certainly not lacking in quality. These packages are easily the best option for lightweight inventory shipments, and amalgamating large amounts of inventory. On the other hand, the 4, 5, and 5+ wall alternatives provide consumers with the largest and most durable option. These boxes are capable of carrying up to 2,500-3,000 pounds in a single load. The rarity and carrying capacity of these particular containers makes them marginally more expensive, however their strength and durability justify their price.
The Strength of Corrugated Cardboard
Every corrugated box is comprised of two main parts, linerboard and fluting. The linerboard is simply the smooth interior and exterior surface of the box, while the fluting is the wavy cardboard texture between the linerboard. Fluting can come in 5 different varieties: A, B, C, E, and F. The thicker flutes (A & C) provide the greatest stacking ability, while the thinner (B, E, & F) provide amply cushioning for the box’s inventory, and help to reinforce the thicker flutes. The strength of each box is determined by the Edge Crush Test (ECT) and the Mullen Test. The ECT measures the stacking strength of corrugated board, which is how much pressure a box can withstand from the top to the bottom before it is crushed. The strength of any box is relative to the box’s linerboard and fluting, so the larger ply boxes are significantly stronger than the lower ply boxes. The Mullen Test gages the bursting strength of corrugated board, which is the amount pressure required to rupture the wall of a piece of corrugated material. Again, the greater the ply of a particular piece of cardboard, the more pressure it can withstand.
