Though the cost and terms of shipping vary and are unique to the courier, the prices are very reasonable. Besides, the terms help in ensuring your package is secure and gets to its destination in good condition.
3)Package the item for shipment
If you want to avoid misplacement of your package or probable damage, then you shouldn’t take its packaging lightly.
Most times, not packaging correctly is the cause of misplacement or damage to parcels. For the package you’re sending, ensure you find out the best type of label to use and place the label on the largest surface of the package.
And if it’s a delicate item, boldly specify this on the label and state “Do not crush”, “Handle with care” or “Fragile”.
This is important as it gives those handling your package an idea on how to carry it to avoid damage. Also, ensure you attach the label is firm to the package to avoid it coming off in transit.
4)Pay and print out your shipping documents
This is the fourth process you need to follow when shipping a parcel if you’ve chosen a courier and agreed with its cost and terms for shipping.
You’ll need to process your order and confirm payment, and print out the shipping documents.
Ensure that you attach any custom document or shipping label provided by the courier company properly to your package for easy identification.
Also, it’s crucial to provide the recipient’s mobile phone numbers. This is to enable the courier company to contact the recipient easily in case of any complications in delivery.
5)Wait for your item to be shipped and don’t forget to track it
The final stage of the shipping process for you is to track it. Once your package is shipped, you’ll be notified, and a tracking ID and a probable date of arrival will be given to you for you to track it with.
Your tracking ID will help inform you where your package arrived last and where it’s currently headed.
You can, and should share the tracking ID with the recipient so both of you can do the tracking, and wait for its arrival.
