We hate to be the ones to break it to you, but Christmas is right around the corner. As of this morning, there are less than 90 days until Christmas. If you want to make sure your holiday gifts get to their destination with plenty of time to spare, the time to start planning, selecting, and shipping starts now.
This is especially true if you’re shipping gifts internationally, or shipping gifts to loved ones in the military stationed overseas. Shipping to these destinations can take significantly longer than it does to ship a package from Massachusetts to New York or even California!
Three Tips To Make Holiday Shipping Simple
Buy With Shipping in Mind: If you know you’ve got to send a X-mas package to the remote Tuscan countryside, up a roadway that’s bumpy at the best of times, don’t buy fragile, handblown wine glasses. A little common sense will help you avoid a lot of headache, and your recipient will love a durable gift just as much.
But if you can’t help yourself, make sure to go to your South Shore shipping store. They’ve got the best in custom shipping boxes and amazing foam-in-place technology to keep fragile items cushioned in a protective shell the whole time they’re traveling!
Double or Triple Check Your Address: Incorrect or illegible addresses are the leading cause of misdirected and lost packages. Double or triple check your recipients’ address before you send your package. A few minutes on the phone will help you avoid tremendous disappointment. Not sure of how to write out the address for an international package or a shipment to a military member? Don’t worry – a member of the Boston Pack and Ship team will be happy to help you out!
Choose the Best Shipping Boxes: Shipping boxes are more important than you think. Don’t trust your holiday gift to recycled boxes. Boston Pack and Ship will hook you up with durable, strong shipping boxes at a reasonable price. When your packages arrive safe and sound, you’ll know it was money well spent.
