  • 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.

  • 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 shipping price.
