Whether you’re shipping a tablet computer to your college student who ‘forgot’ to bring it to school, or shipping an iPad to your parents so they can stay connected to their grandkids, or sending a tablet you sold online to a buyer, you want it to arrive quickly and in good condition. As Boston’s top packing and shipping service, we’ve helped lots of people ship electronic items safely. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Use Original Packing Materials Whenever Possible If you still have the box and packing materials the tablet computer arrived in, use this packaging to ship your tablet computer. After you repack the tablet computer in its original packaging, the next step is to double box it within a strong cardboard shipping carton with appropriate packing materials. This will keep your tablet protected from the rigors of shipping.
Check & Double Check the Shipping Address This is especially important if you’re shipping a tablet computer to a college campus, military base, or assisted living senior home. Having the proper shipping address is essential to making sure your tablet computer arrives safely. If you need to ship a tablet computer internationally, take extra care to get the address correct – the format may be different than you’re used to in the United States, so it never hurts to double check.
Insure Your Package to Cover Loss While the shipping companies do their best, accidents can and do happen. You’ll want to be sure to insure your package adequately so that you’ll be able to replace your tablet computer in the event of an accident. This type of coverage will generally add to the price of your shipment. You may want to comparison shop to get the best deal.
