“I guess I can say I’m pretty lucky,” Stephanie said. “When this whole shut down situation started, my little business was just getting off the ground. We’d literally only opened our doors six months ago. But our customers have stood by us – and since we’ve opened our online store, sales have actually outpaced our projections!”
Transitioning to e-commerce was not without its challenges for the Boston small business owner. “There’s so much more to shipping than throwing everything in a box and slapping a label on,” Stephanie said. “If you do that – and that’s how I started – you wind up spending way more money than you need to. Your packaging choices really impact your budget – not to mention how satisfied your customers are going to be with their purchase.”
Reasons to work with a Massachusetts Packing & Shipping Company
“Until this happened, I didn’t even know packing and shipping companies were a thing,” Stephanie explained. “But it turns out lots of Boston small businesses outsource their shipping to professionals because it just makes life so much easier. I’m a one-woman shop. Everything that has to be done has to be done by me – and shipping takes a lot of time, attention to detail, and did I mention time? It made a lot of sense to find the right professionals to help me choose a packaging solution and get my orders to my customers.”
The best Boston pack and ship company is here to support local small business owners. We help companies on an on-going basis, or as needed during busy times (like the holiday season or stay at home orders), or for individual special orders that need a little extra care.
“Is working with a Boston packing and shipping company cheaper than doing my own shipping? Absolutely,” Stephanie said. “Yes, I do spend some money – but I free up time I can use to focus on my own business. Just the time involved in getting boxes and supplies – I’m so glad to have that stress off of my plate!”
