Every year, there’s all kinds of headlines letting people know when they absolutely, positively must have their packages shipped in order to have them arrive in time for Christmas. And as we learned this year, sometimes Mother Nature trumps the freight carrier and delivery service’s best plans. Snow, rain, and severe weather can stop planes from flying, trucks from driving, even rail service.
With that in mind, let’s talk about Valentine’s Day. Let’s talk about Valentine’s Day if your sweetheart lives really far away – on the other side of the country, perhaps, or even overseas. You want to send them something special to celebrate this romantic day – getting and receiving gifts, after all, is one of the pleasures of being in a relationship – and you really want to make sure that your gift gets there in one piece and on time.
That’s where your South Shore shipping store comes in. You do your part: go out, find the perfect gift, and bring it to Boston Pack and Ship. They’re the South Shore’s best shipping store, and they’ll help you get your gift packaged properly. They use strong cardboard shipping boxes that won’t collapse and the very best packaging materials selected specifically to provide your gift in the ultimate in protection. Sending fragile surprises is much less stressful when you choose foam in place technology: this innovative shipping system encases your gift in a styrofoam shell that protects it from shock, drops, moisture and more. Good to know if you’re shipping your sweetie a tablet computer!
Here are some other Valentine’s Day shipping tips: Ship sooner rather than later. This is one time when it’s much better to be early than late. If you don’t want your sweetie peeking, label the package with a “Do Not Open Until Valentine’s Day” sticker. That always works. Shipping early means a last minute snowstorm won’t wreck your plans!
Next, check and double check your sweetie’s address before sending the package. You can be all stealthy about this, and try to pretend you’re James Bond, secretly investigating a mystery, or you could say, “Hey, sweetie! I’m sending you a present and I want to make sure it gets there. Can you tell me how I should address the box?” We recommend the latter method.
With this information, you should be set to make your sweetie really happy on Valentine’s Day!
