Protect Your Product When Shipping: 6 Tips
Your products are vital to the success of your company. That means you want to protect them. Using quality packaging materials and procedures to pack your products is a great place to start, as bad packaging can lead to a damaged product.
Check out these tips to help protect your products when shipping:
Use Quality Boxes
The first step in protecting your product is about the box you ship it in. You may think it goes without saying to use quality boxes, but you will want to follow this step first. We recommend corrugated boxes they are designed to be strong and withstand the shipping process.
Choose the Proper Box Size
Your items may be large, fragile or oddly shaped. That makes it very important to choose the proper box size. You want to avoid extra air-space in your box so your product doesn’t move too much when being transported.
Use Packaging Supplies When Necessary
Your products will probably need a little extra love in the form of packing peanuts or newspaper sheets. These packaging supplies will keep your products safe and snug within your good quality boxes.
Seal Your Package
Use high-quality packing tape to seal your box. You don’t want tape that will give out on you over the course of the shipping process.
Secure Your Package in its Shipping Crate
Whether your packages are traveling out via cargo hold, shipping crate or truck, you will want to make sure that everything is packed properly, so your product is secure and arrives at its destination safely.
