Choose custom crating for maximum protection when you’re shipping electronics in Massachusetts.
People who try to save money by re-using old boxes to ship electronics often wind up very sad. Why? It’s because old boxes can be structurally compromised, which means they don’t offer the same level of protection to your fragile items. If your package is dropped, knocked, or kicked while it’s in transit, the old box can fail, meaning your item gets damaged.
When you choose custom crating, you get a sturdy cardboard box or wooden shipping crate designed and built specifically for your electronic items. These custom crates are designed to be the optimal size for your items. If a shipping crate is too big, your items can easily shift inside the crate during transit. This causes damage! That’s why custom crates are built to order, just large enough to contain your electronics and the ideal amount of packing material. Smaller electronic items can be sent in custom cardboard shipping boxes, while larger electronics may require the use of a shipping crate.
Be particular about packing material. Newspapers, styrofoam peanuts, and those little bigs of air that come with your latest Amazon purchase just don’t have the robustness necessary to protect your electronics through the shipping process. Your Massachusetts shipping store will talk to you about foam in place technology, an innovative packaging solution that uses expanding foam to form a protective shell around your electronic items. Your electronics are protected against drops, shocks, and moisture! This shell can be easily removed when your electronic items arrive at their destination.
Document, document, document! Successfully shipping electronics requires clear, legible addresses and the correct completion of freight carrier paperwork. Your Massachusetts shipping store will help you complete this task, as well as fill out any documentation needed for insurance purposes. A range of tracking options provides an extra layer of peace of mind!
