Shipping in general, especially when it comes to overseas shipping can be quite difficult to get right, especially if you’re a business that’s barely starting out. Well, no matter how hard you may think it is, there are ways you can consider in order to understand how it works and also save money and time when shipping just about anything. Therefore, in the paragraphs below, we’ll take a closer look at how you can ship a wedding gown to your clients so that it gets to its required destination fast and in one piece.
The right shipping company
One of the first things you need to keep in mind is that it’s very important to learn about the shippers that service your destination and the days you can use them in order to ship your goods to where you want them to get. Get in touch with the shipping service’s coordinator, let him or her know exactly what you want to ship, how many packages you want to ship and when. Depending on how much you want to ship, you may also be entitled to discount, so don’t be shy to request it.
Label it properly
Okay, so you’re sending a wedding gown to your clients and so far everything’s going great. However, you also need to consider labeling the box in which you’re going to ship it so that it says “wedding gown”. The text needs to be written on the box in big letters all over and don’t forget that you also need to write down the client’s phone number on the box. Since delivery people are also people like you, they’re certainly going to take good care of the box so that it doesn’t get thrown around which may damage the wedding gown.
Insure the package
Last but not least, it’s very important that you insure the wedding gown for as much cash as you can. This is something that’s generally going to depend on the shipping service you use, but there shouldn’t be a problem to actually insure the package for a few thousand dollars.
As you can see, shipping a wedding gown overseas is not that difficult and you just need to keep these tips in mind. If it’s not possible to insure it using the shipping service of your choice, you may want to look for a third party to help you with that.
