Christmas in now knocking at the door and this means that the gift-giving season has now started! Yes, the year’s only season where gifts are flying from malls to your doorsteps, from stores to your houses has just begun.
With the advancement of society and technology, you can now send gifts to your friends and relatives overseas through shipping. Worried If the package will be received by your loved ones? Relax! If your shipping company is like NSMS, a reputable shipping agency in the Philippines, you have nothing to worry about. They are the experts! They know how to get these things done.
And to make sure that your package will be received by your darlings and sweethearts, here are some tips!
Time can be your friend or not
What do I mean by this? There are instances that time can be your friend – when you ship early, and instances where it cannot – late shipping.
If you want your loved ones to receive the packages before Christmas then ship now, if you want on the exact date, check your options.
When it comes to shipping, there are no shortages options. Shipping companies have various services available to get your gifts to their destinations on time. But the thing is, if you want to deliver your items faster, your pockets must be ready to put out some dollars.
This is what I’m telling before, if you want your relatives to receive the package before Christmas, then ship it now. You’ll just pay the regular shipping fee. But if you ship your packages, let’s say on the 22nd of December and you want it to be at your Mom’s house by the 24th, and then ready your wallet. You’re going to pay big.
Ground services will take a couple of days to deliver your packages while a flight delivery can take only hours to bring it to its destination. The faster the shipping, the higher the costs.
The earlier you ship, the more options you have.
What do you expect next? Absolutely! COSTS!! What else?
Your least-expensive option will depend on how far the package’s destination is and how soon it will be arrived. Different companies offer different prices for different locations and time of package arrival, so better compare prices of different companies’ services. Check out their websites. For sure they have listed the cost and options on it.
The X factor
Cost is not the one and only thing you need to consider! You may also want to look at pack-and-ship companies. Who are they?
Pack-and-ship companies are those who offer the services of packing and shipping at the same time. They give busy shoppers a respite by actually the packing the boxes. With a lot to do this season, it may be worth a little extra dollar to save you some time.
Let’s say that you have enough time to pack the items yourself, if you are to ship fragile items, it might be worth the peace of mind of having the items packed by professionals rather that you surrounding the box with packing tape. Just leave them to the experts and save time and hassle.
Check your favorite stores now and start shipping! Make your friends and relatives feel special this season!
I love life and all things about it! How about you?
