“Normally, I’d be driving to Upstate New York for my nephew’s birthday. My sister throws a big party every year, it’s a thing. But with things are how they are?” Caitlyn shrugged. “These presents are going to have to show up without me.”
Tips for Sending Packages to Children
The number one priority when sending any gift items to children is ensuring that the gift arrives in good condition. While kids’ toys are often built for rough handling, the fact is that being dropped, knocked, or exposed to the elements during shipping can damage them.
“I’m sending my nephew a Kindle tablet. He loves to read and I want to encourage that,” Caitlyn said. “And some stuffed animals and LEGOs and a few other odds and ends. I didn’t know if I should box everything individually and then rebox the whole thing, or if the boxes the toys came in were okay inside another cardboard shipping box – it’s more than I want to deal with. So I came down to the local packing and shipping company in Massachusetts and said “Help!”
The best packing and shipping company in Massachusetts makes shipping kids’ toys – and everything else – super simple and stress free. Their friendly, knowledgeable staff pack everything according to industry best practices. This means your items are safe and secure throughout the shipping process, so they will arrive at their intended destination in great condition.
How Much Does It Cost to Ship Packages?
“I really had no idea how much it costs to ship anything,” Caitlyn said. “So I called my local pack and ship store and told them what I had. They were able to give me a ballpark estimate that made it clear it was totally worth letting them handle the stress of getting everything boxed up and sent out.
What was really convenient and helpful was how they also walked me through all of my insurance options. I never really thought about insuring a shipment – I never did that before – but it did give me peace of mind. And they helped me pick the best shipping method to ensure my nephew’s presents made it to his house with time to spare.”
