Cardboard storage boxes are an inexpensive, simple and effective way to store almost any non-liquid object within a certain size restriction. They can act as temporary or permanent storage in both homes and in places of business.
Cardboard storage boxes are made out of multiple layers of cardboard. The outer layers are thick and smooth, while the inner layer is corrugated. Besides storage, these boxes, which are usually large and square, are very popular choices when moving from one house to another because they are durable, hold a wide variety of differently shaped items and can hold a lot of weight without tearing. They can be stacked on the floor, a shelf or a rack system, and unless they are exposed to moisture, cardboard storage boxes can continue to be used for many years. They are used to hold unwanted household items, archived files and records in offices and unused inventory and overstock in plants, factories and storage warehouses. While most cardboard boxes are square, they come in a number of different shapes and sizes, including cylindrical and rectangular. Some more expensive boxes can be custom made to fit a certain unusually-shaped product or object.
