Currently, I am employed in receiving for a warehouse company that works with everything from pallets of goods to envelopes of products, and everything in between. Knowing the importance of packaging and sending items correctly is crucial, as in the end its more efficient and keeps overall costs down, as time is not spent reorganizing tipped product or dealing with broken or damaged goods. The methods behind shipping are not usually on the forefront of everyone's mind, but they affect every aspect of modern life and the costs associated with it. The ability to provide secure and precise transportation is an invaluable asset.
Within the next few years, I am getting married, finishing my Bachelor's degree, and moving to another state. Between all those life events, moving is the one that I am dreading the most. Researching moving costs and companies is stressful and trying to keep track of which company can move which items at what time and for how much can turn into a full-time job. Many companies are very cut and dry about what limited services they offer, but having the ability to pick and choose different options, between full service, white glove packing and moving, all the way to do-it-yourself drop-off services, is a huge plus when it comes to moving, whether it's for your business or personal.
ShipSmart sets themself apart from other moving companies by packing items into boxes or crates, whereas many other movers will simply wrap items in moving blankets and bubble wrap. The majority of the time, your items will probably be safe and delivered in the same condition that you last saw them in, but packaging items into crates adds that extra layer of security and peace of mind during an otherwise stressful move. Included in that extra layer is the actual security of being highly rated by the Better Business Bureau and licensed by the Department of Transportation. Not only can they pack up your house or dorm room, but ShipSmart is also able to transport and handle sensitive and delicate equipment, antiques, furniture, and artworks with a variety of crates and packing mediums. They have moved life-saving equipment for hospitals and delicate machines for NASA, and they know exactly how to pack your favorite chandelier or your grandmother's antique dresser. With over 19 years of experience and over 300 locations, they are able to ship items often deemed too large for standard shipping companies, at a reasonable rate, and can even guarantee a delivery time.
When it comes to your transportation, shipping, or moving needs, ShipSmart is the smart choice. Those that enjoy the control can pack their own items and drop them off at one of the many ShipSmart locations nationwide. Anyone who wants the full package, there's the white glove service, where trained professionals come and pack up your items, and will even unpack them at your new location. In the end, you know that with ShipSmart, your items are their top priority.
