It may seem obvious, but the method you pack is critical to the overall effectiveness of your shipping. Packing entails more than simply placing items in moving boxes. Packing your belongings, like most things, needs careful consideration and forethought. Everything from how you pack to when you start packing can have an impact on how smoothly your shipment travels.
With that in mind, here are six typical packing blunders that you should avoid at all costs to have stress-free shipping.
Ensure there are no remaining labels from prior shipments on reused boxes. This can lead to miscommunication and result in a delay in your shipment.
Some people tend to use plastic bags when they are short of cardboard containers. This is a bad idea because plastic bags provide very little protection for your goods.
