5 x Bookyard custom designed heavy duty shipping box for 20" (2009 onwards) and 21.5" iMacs shipped in compact form for cost effective shipping. Each box kit comprises a 300GSM, double wall, steel staple stitched shipping box printed with fragile and this-way-up legends, hand-holds, and a set of four custom configurable corner inserts made of tough, flexible and durable polyethylene foam. The inserts feature recesses to hold mouse, keyboard and mains cable. The finishing touch is a spacer inserted into the hole in the iMac leg to hold the leg away from the side and base of the box.
The external dimensions are as follows :
Width : 620mm
Depth : 257mm
Height : 580mm
This box can securely support the 20" and both the pre-2012 & post-2012 21.5" iMacs due to the unique configurable foam inserts which feature tear off blocks. Full instructions are included.
These boxes were designed for our own use to safely ship refurbished iMacs and both the box and the inserts are considerably stronger than the original Apple shipping boxes. This is version 2 of our box design with 50% stronger cardboard, a larger gap between the iMac and the base and front of the box, and completely redesigned inserts providing support for the thinner, post-2012 iMacs as well as re-inforcement for the carrying handles. We use polyethylene inserts because it is so much more durable than the polystyrene inserts used by Apple which are brittle and can fracture and crumble. This shipping box can be used again and again and again.
Please note that iMacs are very fragile and this box cannot guaranty against damage in transit. This box has been designed to be strong and protective but The Bookyard cannot accept any liability for any product damaged while being shipped in it. For regular use we suggest you check with your courier to ensure they will provide insurance cover when shipped in this box.
