5 Tips to Assure Your Parcel Safety

Whether you’re a small business needing to ship and distribute products throughout the world, or if you’re an individual sending a gift to a loved one – you want to make sure that the parcel arrives safely. Here are a few tips to guide you.

 Tip #1: Secure packaging

Securely packaging your parcel for transit is absolutely vital. It’s important to take into consideration the many stages of transit that your item will go through on its journey – it will be sorted by machines and loaded on to a van for delivery alongside dozens of other items, big and small.

At Parcel Ireland, we take care of the packaging and ensure that it is secure.

Tip #2: Label your package correctly

Once you’ve got your item all packaged up, it’s important to make sure that your shipping labels are securely fastened on to the item. You don’t want to risk these labels coming off, as this could cause problems during transit and may result in the item being severely delayed or even lost. Place the labels inside a poly-pocket and secure them with packaging tape.

The labeling is included in our service mix. Thus, you can be sure that no mistakes will be made.

 Tip #3: Do not send forbidden items

This goes without saying. Many individuals, however, are not aware of the restrictions specific to the country or to the courier companies

At Parcel Ireland, we make sure to stay up-to-date with the requirements of each country. We will communicate those to you during your booking.

 Tip #4: Book with a reputable courier

Before selecting your courier, do some research to make sure that you’re getting the very best value for your money. Taking the time to find a reputable courier means you have that extra peace of mind knowing that your items will be handled with the utmost of care and will be in safe hands during transit
