Helpful Tips When Shipping During The Holidays

As we reach the month of gift-giving, we want to help you make sure that your gifts reach your friends and loved ones in good condition. Here are some practical shipping tips when sending packages during the holidays.

The U.S. Postal Service also suggests that you also include a copy of the address inside the package in case the box is damaged or accidentally gets opened during transit.

2. Plan ahead - As shipping times vary per location, it's important to plan ahead if you're sending out gifts overseas or across the miles. The United States Postal Service offers Priority Mail Shipping which can be an option for speedy and affordable way to ship your gifts.

3. Last-minute shipping options - If you have a last-minute gift to send out, explore your shipping options with various shipping companies as well as the United States Postal Service. Their Priority Mail Express shipping may be an affordable way to ship last-minute items.

4. Protect your package - To make sure your gift makes it in one piece, be sure to choose the proper box and remember that it may get smashed and shifted so you may want to use a heavier box. When packing your box, don't use duct tape or string as it may get caught or break off. Lastly if you're sending electronic items that have batteries, be sure to remove the batteries from within the item and wrap it separately inside the box.
