It’s easy to assume that shipping packages is simple. After all, you just throw your stuff in a box, toss some styrofoam peanuts in there, tape it up, scribble an address on the outside and call for pickup, right? Well, that can work in some instances, but it’s not necessarily the best route all of the time. To avoid breakage, lost packages, heartache and expense, you’ll definitely want to call in a professional Boston packing and shipping company in these three situations:
- Fragile & antique stuff: Furniture, collectibles, artwork and other delicate treasures just aren’t going to make it to their destination in one piece if they’re not packed properly. A lot of times, these items are valuable. That means it’s well worth your while to have a professional packing and shipping company step up and provide durable shipping boxes or custom built wooden shipping crates as needed, as well as the specific type of packing material that’s needed to provide your item with the ultimate in protection.
- High Tech Items: Computers, biomedical equipment, manufacturing machinery, and other high tech items can be cumbersome and delicate at the same time: it’s hard to move and easy to break. Again, these are often extremely valuable items, and they may be vital to the operation of your business! Call in a professional Boston packing and shipping company for safe, insured moves of your valuable high tech items.
- International Shipments: Sending packages overseas, to Canada or Mexico, or elsewhere throughout the world, is easier said than done. Making sure the paperwork is absolutely correct makes all the difference in the world. Each country has its own set of addressing conventions and regulations. If you’re not absolutely sure of how things are done in the country you’d like to send things to, call in the pros – that way you’ll be sure your package actually gets there!
