The festival of Halloween is less than a few weeks away. And yes, it may not be possible for some of us to visit all our loved ones at once, especially if we are too busy. Thus, it would be smart choice to send presents instead on Halloween. It can be the fastest and the most cost-effective way to make them feel special.
Pack your gifts like a pro
At first, choose the right size of the box to pack the gift. The more a piece can move, the more likely it is to break. Thus, it is recommended to choose a box which is just an inch or two bigger than the gift. But make sure not to over-stuff it. If you do, the contents are likely to bust out before reaching their destination. Check the bottom of the box so that it can take the weight of the gift.
When sending multiple items in a single box, make sure you bubble-wrap each of the items separately so that they don’t clank against each other. Before sealing the package, give it a gentle shake. If you feel or hear something moving, add extra padding of newspaper.
Smart shipping tips
A box is a common thing which is available with every individual. It can be from items purchased online or from someone who gifted you something in the past. Try out those boxes for wrapping gifts. Strip off the old labels, bar codes, so the package looks like a simple newly purchased one. If you’re sending any electronic item, do not forget to remove the batteries.
To make a package waterproof, line it with a garbage bag. Cover the box firmly with the bag. And finally, the zip code must be written clearly. Wrong zip code can land the package back to your doorstep after some weeks. Stick an extra mailing label inside the box in case the exterior one becomes illegible. Workers from the postal service can sometimes open the box to look for this backup label.
Remember, when choosing a postal service, always sign up with a company which has a reputation and is well established with freight forwarding services. It means you’re hiring a company with a platform of total forwarding system.
Weight plays a major role while sending gifts. The charges may be different based on the weight and size of the parcel. Some of the postal services can even offer discounts on these two aspects, so choose one which does not cost much. But make sure not to compromise the quality of service and risk the gifts.
Gift your loved ones creative and memorable Halloween items no matter where you are. The postal service is always there for you to reach out to different countries and cities.
