Customers come to Peterborough Camera, Copies & More for all sorts of reasons. They need our shredding services, photo printing, camera repair, or packing and shipping services. We also do a whole lot more, but today, we’re going to focus on packing and shipping. We’re sure you know it’s more than just putting some items in a box and putting a label on it, but there’s probably quite a bit you don’t know about what goes into packing and shipping.
In this article, we’re taking a closer look at five things about packing and shipping that people don’t know or often overlook.
The goal of packing and shipping services is to ensure that your items arrive at their destination safely. For oversized, fragile, or unusually-shaped items, custom packaging is the best way to keep items safe in transit. This includes custom-sized boxes, foam inserts, packing materials, and padded envelopes. Our experts in packing and shipping know exactly what to use to protect your shipment in transit.
Shipping items internationally can be a complex and confusing process. There are regulations about what you’re allowed to ship, customs forms, and other documentation that you need to work around. Rather than trying to figure it all out yourself, rely on the expertise of our packing and shipping experts. They will guide you through the process and help you find the most cost-effective solutions.
Purchasing Packing Supplies
Most of us don’t have a wide array of packing materials lying around. You might have the odd sheet of bubble wrap or padded mailer, but that might not cut it depending on what you need to ship. We have everything you need all in one place. Boxes that are just the right size, bubble wrap, packing peanuts, labels, everything.
Clear and precise labels ensure that your package ends up at the right place. Properly formatted address labels make it easy for the shipping company to send your package to the right address. Additionally, we also provide address verification to ensure that the recipient’s information is correct, reducing the risk of delays or delivery errors.
Tracking and Insurance
Finally, using professional packing and shipping services also gives you the option of purchasing tracking services or delivery insurance. You can check where your package is to ensure it arrives on time or give the recipient a heads-up about its ETA. Additionally, purchasing insurance gives you peace of mind that your shipment is protected against loss, damage, or theft.
