What is a Surplus box? Surplus boxes are new boxes which are overruns, overstock, or misprints that have been declared obsolete that would otherwise be sent to the paper mill for pulp. This is why they are so affordable.
What is a Used box? Our used boxes are gently used. We sort through what we receive and only sell what is in great shape.
Who do you sell to? Carton Service Co. is open to the public M-F 730am- 400pm PST. We welcome commercial and retail customers. No need for an appointment.
Do I have to be a commercial business to get a discount on your boxes? No. Pricing is dependent on quantity sold. It is amalgamated. Meaning, if you buy 100 of one size and 150 of another size, you will receive the 250 column pricing for all of the boxes.
Do you have a minimum order? No. We are happy to sell you one box as long as we don’t have to use a forklift and move 5 pallets to get to it. :)
Do you offer local truck delivery? Carton Service Co. offers local truck delivery to companies in the greater Seattle area with a minimum order of $300. A delivery charge may apply. Outside of our shipping area we will use your preferred common carrier and ship freight collect.
Do you buy boxes? We buy unused corrugated boxes depending on size, strength, printing and quantities at a premium above recyclers. We buy used corrugated boxes when large quantities and certain criteria are met. Our interest in buying boxes is limited to the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. We welcome a phone call or an email for a quote.
How do you measure a box? Boxes are measured Length X Width X Height and they are always measured on the inside.
What is a corrugated tray? These are corrugated trays that were going to be used mostly for bottles. For example a tray of water bottles that you would buy at the grocery store or Costco. We sell tons of them to nurseries as walk out trays for plants and more. Sometimes we carry self locking trays. And on a regular basis we carry the type that need stapling to put together (we also sell heavy duty staplers for this process). The trays are all surplus and a very good deal. See our list of Corrugated Trays.
Please let us know if you have any questions or want us to send you a picture of what we have in stock. See our Products and Pricing Page for details.
