Save Money Shipping Toners By Reducing Dimensional Weight

Toners are light, relative to their total volume.  To reduce the packed dimensions and chargeable weight, remove the toners from the over-sized shipping boxes and tape them together in sets of 2, 3, 4, or even 6.  

Below is an example where the chargeable weight was reduced from 28 lbs to 18 lbs by correctly packaging the toners.   

Generally there is a $5.00 fee for each box that the warehouse repacks in this fashion, so if you want to save, instruct your shipper to do it for you.


open the box

remove the toners

put them together

tape across them so that they are tight

tape over the joints between the toners to completely secure together

tape the shipping label to them
