Pail Box for Plastic and Steel 5 Gallon Pails

Among the boxes that we stock is our item # VCI48358.  This box will fit a 5 gallon plastic bucket or a 5 gallon steel pail.  In order to fit the plastic bucket (pail)  in the box, the lid would have to be fitted on the pail.  With the steel pails, there would be some extra room at the top of the box, however, it would fit a 5 gallon steel pail and lug cover or a 5 gallon steel pail with a dish cover and a ring.  It would also fit our tighthead pails.

As with all of our stock boxes, it allows a low cost option for purchasing a smaller quantity than if you were to have custom boxes made.

We can, of course, have custom boxes, either printed or unprinted, made for you.  The quantities vary according to the size of the box.  Contact us with your needs and we would be happy to provide a quote.

Things to note:

  • Convenient
  • Low cost
  • Small Quantities
  • Low $250 minimum
  • Avoid the additional handling charge from UPS – Currently UPS charges $8.75 for “any cylindrical item, such as a barrel, drum, pail or tire, that is not fully encased in a corrugated cardboard shipping container”.
