With less than a week remaining until Christmas, is it too late to ship holiday gifts? Not necessarily, say the major delivery companies. You still have time, although it’s important to understand that the longer you wait to ship your holiday gifts from the South Shore, the more money you’re going to pay.
Additionally, as we all know, the weather is unpredictable. While all the delivery carriers do their very best to make sure holiday packages arrive on time, a major snowstorm or other weather event could slow things down. For that reason, you’ll want to visit your South Shore shipping store as soon as possible.
South Shore Shipping Secrets: Packing Presents Properly!
The holiday season is the busiest time of the year. More packages and parcels are shipped during December than the rest of the year combined. This means the infrastructure of the shipping system is stressed to the max. You want to make sure you pack all of your presents in stout, strong new shipping boxes: using a recycled box now significantly increases the chances that your gifts will be crushed or damaged.
Another great tip to make sure your presents arrive in one piece is to use the proper packing materials. First of all, wrapping paper is not a packing material: crumbling up extra wrapping paper to cushion your gifts is a recipe for disaster! Come to Boston Pack and Ship, your South Shore shipping specialist, for a full selection of shipping materials, including peanuts, bubble wrap, kraft paper shreds and more. Strongly recommended for electronic and super fragile gifts: foam in place technology, which cushions and supports your gifts inside a durable styrofoam-like shell.
The holidays can be a super stressful time, especially if you feel like time’s running out on you! The friendly team at Boston Pack and Ship are here to put a little Merry back in Merry Christmas! We’ll help you pack your presents properly and get them shipped where they need to go!
