Brian Regan from The Delivery Magazine, a publication specialising in the Parcel Courier service and distribution stated that many retailers have a tendency to use a larger parcel box than the item itself in order to protect the product from being damaged during transport. However, this means that a parcel box needs to be a sufficient size in order to accept these larger containers.
 
If you have regular home deliveries from shopping online, have more then one user in a household, or require a box for trade/business use, then we advise you to choose the Large or Medium Parcel Delivery Box. However, if you require a mail box for either smaller packages, such as A4 letters and smaller parcels that wont fit through your letterbox, then the Mini Parcel Delivery Box will be more suited for your home.
For more information on any of these parcel boxes, please visit the individual product pages on the Asgard website.
*Please note that the the Lid for the Large Delivery Box overlaps the edge of the unit, and measures at W560mm x D690mm.  Please take these additional dimensions into consideration when installing the unit.
