Packaging and shipping boxes of valuables correctly can make a huge difference in how well they’ll keep through shipping services. Overall, shipping internationally especially will be risky through common providers. Luckily, we have high-quality solutions to avoid damage on your end.
Tips for Effectively Packaging Valuables
Custom Shipping Boxes
The box itself is going to be a major factor in how well your package keeps. Otherwise, you put it at risk of sloshing around more easily. Of course, for a regularly sized box, you can put in additional packing materials. This includes bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and more. All these will lower the risk of damage, but not as much as a custom box would. Eliminating space is the primary reason that custom boxes can be so effective.
Take the Piece Apart
As much as you can, you should try to disassemble the shipped item. This will increase the efficiency with which you can pack the item tightly. Also, this allows custom box-sizing to be more versatile. Since your pieces are smaller, you can plan around tighter spaces in the box and keep them from jostling when moved. Additionally, individual wrapping is always a better solution.
Overshipping occurs when you put far too many items in a tight space. These clash easily and can damage each other. Generally, you want to avoid this as much as possible with your valuables especially.
Monitor the Shipping Boxes and Their Tracking Function
While this isn’t really for avoiding damage in transit, it helps reduce the risk of theft or lost items. Unfortunately, with the bigger companies, you have to hold them accountable yourself.
