International Shipping Company
Millions of people around the world ship products to different destinations every day. This has been made possible by shipping companies. There are many shipping companies in the market. However, there are very few that can be trusted. If you are planning to ship something to a foreign country then it is crucial for you to research the best shipping companies in your area. You should only look for companies that have experience with international shipping. Your local shipping company cannot always provide you with the services you need, so always choose a company that has international shipping experience.
International shipping is most commonly used to send gifts and other similar items. However, they are an important part of international relocation. If you are thinking about moving abroad, then you may be moving a large shipment. If you are someone who wants to take everything, keep in mind your items come in all shapes and sizes. Where many companies might limit your international shipping to a certain limit, 1 Stop Pack n Ship let you ship uniquely sized items to all parts of the world. 1 Stop Pack n Ship will help you pack items of all types and sizes.
Types of Items we can Ship
When it comes to shipping items to another country, there are certain rules and regulations that have to be followed. Before shipping an item, the first thing you should do is understand the concept of international shipping. You should have an idea about the Customs policies and rules and regulations of the destination country. 1 Stop Pack n Ship can help you package and ship items including furniture, medical equipment, computers, electronic appliances, artwork, accessories and many other items.
International Shipping and Customs
Anything that is sent from one country to another has to go through Customs authorities in both countries. There are certain countries that don’t allow thinks such as valuable art or jewelry to pass through Customs, so you have to be very careful. You need to research the matter and be knowledgeable before you start the process. 1 Stop Pack n Ship has been in the moving and shipping business since the 1980s. We know how to deal with the Customs authorities in a professional proper way. We will make sure that your items get the proper releases from Customs in as little time as possible.
Calculating the Cost for your Shipment
It should be kept in mind that international shipping is different from local shipping in many ways. There is more paperwork and the process takes longer. Calculating the price for an international shipment isn’t as simple as it is for a local job. For small parcels and packages, the price can be fixed according to the weight of the parcel but if you opt for a professional shipping company that packs and loads, the price can change. In addition to the weight, the cost depends on the nature of the items. High value and fragile items cost relatively more compared to other shipments. It is always smart to discuss the items and shipping process with 1 Stop Pack n Ship so that you can get a good quote for your international shipping.
