Moving boxes are measured according to their inside dimensions. That means that a box is 16 x 12 x 12″, you are able to fit an item that is 16 x 12 x 12″ inside that box. Keep in mind that dimensions are almost always expressed in inches.
- Boxes are always measured in the order: Length x Width x Height (or Depth).
- Length is always the longest side of the box that has a flap.
- Boxes are always measured without the flaps.
- There is an acceptable manufacturing variance of +/- 1/8".
