Common Shipment Guidelines

When you’re online shopping for your new favorite pair of shoes or grabbing a deal on the latest tech gadget, the size of the box it ships in probably isn’t your number one concern. When trying to decide what size box you’ll need, or something of similar weight and size, it can almost feel like you’re playing 21 questions. Is it larger than an iPad? Can it fit in a shoebox?
