The holiday season is almost here. Getting cards, gifts, and packages to everyone on your list on time doesn’t have to be a stressful endeavor – and you don’t have to spend hours standing in line at the post office! Here are the three things you need to know about holiday shipping:
Holiday Shipping Tip #1: Start Shopping Early
Before you can ship your cards, gifts and packages, you have to purchase them. Don’t leave your shopping until the last minute – especially if you’re the sort of person who likes to find exactly the right present for the people you care about the most. You don’t have to wait for Black Friday to start your holiday gift shopping!
Holiday Shipping Tip #2: Consider Shipping When Choosing Gifts
Knowing that you have to ship a gift can impact what you choose to give someone. Extremely fragile items are often difficult to ship; large, unwieldy and heavy items can be expensive to ship. Some items can’t be shipped, due to the rules and regulations of the destination location – you can’t ship citrus fruit into California, for example – and other items, including firearms, can only be shipped in compliance with strict freight carrier rules.
Holiday Shipping Tip #3: Pick a Packing & Shipping Service for Stress Free Holiday Shipping
Skip the stress and miss the lines at the Post Office by going to Boston Pack and Ship for your holiday shipping. Experienced professionals know how to pack fragile, delicate, and one of a kind items to survive being shipped. Working with a packing and shipping service will help you save money because they can help you find the most affordable way to ship your gifts and still have them arrive on time. Absolute necessity if you’re shipping gifts internationally, including soldiers deployed overseas and students who are studying abroad.
