Ship It Out Safely
If your business involves delivering products to customers, you want those items to arrive on time and in perfect condition. You want a painting to get to its owner unscathed, the table you hand-made to arrive without scratches, or the fine antique china you're selling to show up in one piece.
And if you're planning to move all your prized possessions from one residence to another in a personal move, of course you will want to take the same care when you choose appropriate shipping boxes (single wall, lightweight, heavy duty or corrugated), moving blankets and other moving supplies and packing materials.
The secret to success when it comes to transporting goods successfully is using quality packing and shipping supplies that are right for the specific job. Using the right combination of packing peanuts, Bubble Wrap and moving boxes for a particular job can make all the difference. To find information on packing and shipping as well as all the packaging and moving supplies you need, look no further than eBay—your complete shipping store.
Packing and Shipping Tips
Shipping materials from one location to another should seem like a no-brainer, but there is actually much more to it than putting items in shipping boxes and slapping mailing labels on the front. First, make sure the cardboard boxes you choose match the size of the items you are shipping. A small item should go in a small shipping envelope or box, a large item should go in a large shipping box, etc.
Secondly, cushion the goods appropriately. For a breakable or oddly shaped item, use plenty of bubble wrap, packing paper, packing peanuts or tissue paper to keep it protected.
And thirdly, you need to use packing tape that will keep your package properly sealed and protected. And the right tape dispenser will make the 40th box as easy to seal as the first. Shipping labels that clearly display the address are also a must. You'll find everything you need on eBay to pack and ship like a pro, whether it's shipping bags, bubble and poly mailers, postage scales, letter folders, and postage meters.
