Let us help answer some common questions about the beachbox_text service!

How big is my BeachBox?

The BeachBox has about 2.6 cubic feet of space and is approximately 20” wide and 23” long and is about 13” deep.  It is a great size to store many items you will want to keep here on the beach and still be able to keep the BeachBox portable.

Is my BeachBox airtight and waterproof?

The BeachBox is virtually airtight and watertight. Keep in mind that odors will not be able to escape. If you put wet clothes in your BeachBox they will not dry and will mildew. If you leave an opened citrus candle the smell will permeate the Box and everything in it. If you leave the BeachBox in the rain the contents will not get wet, however, if you throw the BeachBox in the ocean it will eventually seep in.

Does the BeachBox have a weight limit?

The BeachBox can handle just about anything you can place in it. However, we do ask that you try and keep the weight to what an average adult would be able to carry. Please remember, like a treasure chest, the Beachbox needs to be portable.

What shouldn't I store in my BeachBox?

Anything that is illegal in the US or North Carolina.

You can put almost anything in your BeachBox. The main thing to remember is common sense.
Wet clothes will smell and mildew and a scented candle will smell and permeate the Box and get in your clothes. Unsealed food will spoil and smell. Remember that your BeachBox is like an enclosed  treasure chest or locker.

Where do you deliver?

On the barrier islands known as the Outer Banks. Primarily Corolla, Duck, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head. Special arrangements will need to be made for Hatteras Island and Ocracoke.

How do I secure my BeachBox?

You BeachBox comes with security seals to ensure your BeachBox is secured. There is also a place to put a small lock if you choose to do so. Please remember if you place your own lock in your BeachBox we do not have a spare key/combination and it is your responsibility to be able to open your lock.

Do/will you open my BeachBox?

We prefer not to. What you have in your locker is your business. We will only open a BeachBox in an emergency if it is effecting other BeachBoxes or our facility, or if we are ordered to do so by law enforcement authorities. Other than those exceptions we not open a BeachBox.

How much notice do you need for delivery?

48 Hours notice. We appreciate as much advance notice as possible so we may make proper arrangements, so it is never to soon. If we have less then 48 hours notice we will do our best to get it to you as quick as possible.
