So, the auction is over and you're all set to ship your items. But do you know that a more important thing comes now? Packing and shipping your goods appropriately, in their original condition, is an important task as no one likes to get a damaged parcel. You see a huge assortment of items that are differently sized and shaped. To save you from packaging mishaps, here are a few take-aways for optimum packaging of auctioned goods.
Order Standard Size Boxes
Don't stack packing boxes in hundreds of numbers as you might end up wasting extra space while packing smaller items like watches and medals. Instead, order packs of 10 or 25 in different sizes so that you have the right size for right item.
Ensure Proper Protection
Bubbles, loose fill chips, tissue papers and what not... You must ensure to fill in so much material to protect your packaged item from shocks during transit. Bubble Wraps are a popular and cost-effective source for packaging delicate or fragile items.
Stretch Wraps are the ultimate solution to hold huge loads together while transporting in bundles. Whether it is furniture or any industrial item, stretch wrapping ensures no dust build-up and safe transportation with no tampering.
Sophisticated labeling adds the required final touch to your products. Shipping Labels contain information that is necessary to intimate the users about the packed goods such as expiry dates, contents packed, price, etc.
With the above packaging materials, you will be readily equipped with what is required to ship the auctioned goods, but some awkward flats, talls and longs you may require special packaging boxes and shipping arrangements. It is not about selling your goods but more about how you interact with the receiver at every step of the selling process, including the packaging and shipping.
As many incidences speak of items mishandled during transit causing loss to both the parties, it is important to follow a proper packaging and shipping process.
