Benefits of Working with a Shipping Center
Visiting a shipping center for your packing and mailing needs offers you
the utmost in convenience, providing cost-effective shipping options that
will save you time and money.
- Working with a packing and shipping center means you can get everything
done in one place. You won’t need to spend time and money driving
to the store to purchase boxes, then traveling to the post office to ship them.
- The right box size and packing materials are essential to ensuring your
package reaches its destination safely. Your shipping center has everything
you need to properly pack any item to reduce the risk of damage during shipping.
- Chelsea Mini Storage’s onsite shipping center allows you to package
and mail business inventory right out of your secure storage unit quickly
and easily from a single location. Alternatively, if you’re planning
a move, you can ship items you’ve placed in storage right to your
destination, rather than requiring your movers to pick them up at an increased cost.
Smart Packaging Tips
The key to ensuring your items reach their destination safely is proper
packaging. At Chelsea Mini Storage’s onsite shipping center, we
offer a wide variety of boxes, packing materials, and shipping options
to minimize effort and maximize benefits, whether you need to mail a single
item or are preparing a large shipment. You can reach our storage facility
by phone at (212) 564-7735 for more information about shipping, mailbox
rental, and self storage options.
- Although recycling is a great concept, using boxes that are past their
prime can put shipped items at risk. When packaging items for mailing,
only use new or like-new boxes. If the box you plan to use is ripped or
water-damaged, recycle it and purchase a new one.
- Avoid boxes that fit your items exactly, as this leaves no room for packaging.
Use a box with one to two inches of clearance on all sides of your item
to accommodate peanuts or bubble wrap.
- Placing small items in a box that is much too large increases the chances
that they will shift and break when handled. Mailing a box that is too
large will also cost you more money in terms of interior packaging and
