At the end of the storage term, Boxie24 transports the packed stored Goods back to the Customer and retrieves the emptied boxes at a date determined by the Customer (within 1-10 working days). The Customer can also use their own cartons up to 82 gallons in capacity.

The right to terminate the contract for an important reason remains unaffected.
The minimum storage quantity is 4 items.
The Customer must ensure that all Goods are packed well (using for example, air cushion film) so the Goods are not damaged (e.g., by impacts, loads, or temperature fluctuations), particularly in the case of sensitive Goods such as glass or porcelain. If individual boxes/cartons are not completely filled, the Customer must supplement the content accordingly with fillers, at his own risk. The Customer is held solely responsible for the packing and securing of the Goods.
Additional items up to the maximum dimensions listed can be transported and stored when they do not fit into a box. The Customer needs to ensure the item is packed correctly for transport and storage. The Customer is held solely responsible for ensuring the secure packaging of the Goods.
