DATELINE: BRAINTREE, MA…A Tiffany lamp, your grandmother’s antique rocker, or a full-length mirror with a mahogany frame. When sending delicate, yet awkward sized and often irreplaceable pieces like these, your packaging options are few and far between. You can do your best with the packing materials you buy at the post office or a supply store and pray for safe delivery or you can use a small load specialist like Boston Pack and Ship that offers customized packaging and crate services.
As a small load specialist, Boston Pack and Ship specializes in shipments of less than 1,000 pounds—parameters that can cover a lot of different items. To safely ship such a wide range of parcels, Boston Pack and Ship creates customized double wall corrugated cardboard packaging for its retail and corporate customers. In addition, the Braintree-based company has an on-site workshop for it to build customized wood crates. Tailoring these containers exactly to the dimensions of the shipment dramatically reduces the possibility of damage during shipping.
“This service is particularly attractive to customers because we can also pick up the item for shipment at their home or business, transport it securely in quilted padded blankets back to our shop and then create the appropriate sized packaging or crate. So not only do they not have to worry about finding the right size container or packing the shipment by themselves, but they don’t have to transport it anywhere for delivery. In fact, we can make arrangements for most shipments, including international deliveries, in just one telephone call,” said Joe Fell, co-owner of Boston Pack and Ship.
In addition to customized packaging and crates, Boston Pack and Ship employs foam-in-place technology to ship expensive electronic equipment like computers, monitors, and other hardware. A high-strength film protects the item you’re shipping, which is then “locked” in place with a foam spray, essentially creating a customized encasing that prevents movement of any kind and securing the shipment.
“The foam-in-place technology is generally used by manufacturers to ship out their company’s products and is not usually available on a retail basis. We use it because when you ship out-of-state and internationally, your only true measuring stick is whether the shipment gets there in good shape. Using the foam-in-place technology and custom packaging and crates is about as close to a guarantee as we can offer,” said Fell.
Boston Pack and Ship offers multiple U.S. and International shipping options—ocean or air—to help lower costs. Door-to-door and door-to-port delivery—with full, declared value—is available. Pick-up of shipments for delivery is made by appointment.
