- 20L" x 16W" x 10H"
- 17L" x 17W" x 17H"
Most boxes larger than the recommended range tend to fall apart and/or are easily damaged during transit. Swap.com will not be responsible for any item(s) that are damaged during transit due to poor packing or using an over-sized box. For detailed instructions how to pack your box see here.
