Packing and Shipping Reduces Damage by Ayla Padgett
Ask anyone what the most stressful time of their life. Is it high school? College? Getting married? Most people would answer the most stressful time of their life is actually moving from one place to another. I watched a Judge Judy episode just this week about damage during a move. A realtor hired a moving company for the buyer to move her things into her new condo. Well, she gets to the new condo and her things are damaged: holes in the mattresses, rugs ripped or fraying, and glassware shattered. If we don’t hire a company, we have to package all of our items ourselves and we carefully play Tetris to get everything to fit into the moving truck, praying that the potholes and speed bumps we hit don’t jostle anything too much. What if there was a way to take this stress out of our lives, to not worry if our packaging will hold? Well, there is! Ship Smart takes the stress out of packaging and shipping and makes moves seamless.
I think most of us fit into the same category, we are not professional packers or movers. We have no idea what is the best material to wrap china in or the best way to roll up a rug to avoid stains or rips. This is where Ship Smart comes in. With on-site packing options for fragile items and on-site furniture prep and loading, there is less anxiety for the customer. The items are then transported to one of Ship Smart’s warehouses. With 300 warehouse locations nationwide, your items won’t have to travel very far. Once at the warehouse, the items are secured snugly and safely onto pallets. Securing the items to the pallets allows the items to be consolidated and reduces the risk of any item being lost or left behind. It also allows the pallet to be moved with industrial equipment, eliminating the risk of damage from improper handling.
Ship Smart is perfect for any move. Need to have the items moved in a really short time frame? No problem, they offer expedited shipping. Live in a rural area with only one gas station and there are more cows than people? Not an issue, they ship to any town, city or state! Only shipping a small number of items to a college dorm? Don’t worry, they offer small move options!
The absolute best part of using Ship Smart is becoming a part of their family. They are dedicated to their customers and provide superb service. Packages can be tracked any time by calling the office. Not only is satisfaction and safety a priority with every move, they are guaranteed. No payment or deposit is required until items are packed and weighed. The flexibility of Smart Ship’s services gives them an edge up on other moving companies and allows them to match specific services to you. You and your items are the top priority, and Ship Smart proves this with each and every move they do.
