Some shipping carriers restrict how big the box is that you use to ship. For example, USPS allows a maximum combined length and girth of 108 inches.

To find out whether or not you exceeded that limit, follow these steps:

  1. Measure the three parcel dimensions in inches.
    • Example: 30″ (Length) x 10″ (Width) x 15″ (Height)
  2. Add the measurements of the two smallest dimensions and multiply by two. This is your package’s girth.
    • Example: [10″ (Width) + 15″  (Height) ] x 2 = 50″ (Girth)
  3. Take the longest dimension and add this to the package girth. The result is the combined length and girth of your parcel.
    • Example: 30″ (Length) + 50″  (Girth) = 80″  (Combined Length and Girth)
