During this festive season, persons are purchasing last-minute gifts to send to their loved ones. Whether you hope to get it in time for Christmas or the New Year, consider these 5 things to ensure your gift arrives safely.
1. Pay attention to your packaging
Our team at 1 Stop Pack N Ship takes great care when handling your packages. We do our best to ensure there is no damage to your items. However, you should properly package your gifts before they reach us.
2. Properly measure and weigh your package
By having the dimensional weight before making an appointment could prevent delays. It will also ensure you receive correct charges for your shipment. Make sure you package your gift item first then take the measurements for a more accurate result.
3. Find out if your gift can be shipped
In your excitement, you may purchase an item that is on the restricted list. To avoid this disappointment, contact us to find out what items can and cannot be shipped. Once you identify the items that are allowed, you are free to make your purchase.
4. Declare all contents in your package
If your package is being shipped internationally, it will go through customs in the receiving country. You will be required to list the items, their total value and the purpose for the shipment. Failure to provide accurate information can result in unnecessary costs and delays.
5. Include a return address
Unforeseen situations can happen and we have no control over them. In such cases, your package may have to be returned to you. By providing a return address both on the inside and outside of your package, it would not get lost.
If you have additional questions about shipping gifts, give us a call or message us. At 1 Stop Pack N Ship, we will be happy to see your loved ones smile.
