Big Items, Little Items; Packaging In Chicago

By Sandra Griffin

There are many reasons people would need packaging in Chicago. Around the holidays, Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, people always need to send packages to loved ones all around the country. They will even send packages to friends and family that live across the ocean in London or one of the other European countries. Or they might have family and friends in Mexico or Canada they would like to send gifts to.

It is always a shame when a person sends their friend or family member a beautiful gift and that person calls or writes to them to thank them but then tells them it was broken during shipping. A trustworthy, dependable packing and shipping company could pack the items being shipped with a number of different packing materials to insure that the items arrive at their destination in one piece.

With a variety of materials at their disposal, packaging and shipping companies can insure that whatever a person is shipping will arrive in one piece and without any dings or dents. There are Styrofoam packing peanuts, plastic bubble wrap and heavy-duty brown packaging paper and shredded newspaper or plain papers along with quilted blankets for larger, more fragile items.

Because people want to feel helpful, they are supporting the war efforts by supporting the troops and this means sending them ‘care packages’ with lots of items they need and other items they will enjoy. People are shipping boxes containing hand sanitizer, lip balm, non-perishable snacks, magazines, books, DVD’s, CD’s, calling cards, old cell phones, playing cards and small, portable table top board games. It is best to check with a military or official sponsored website to make sure that the items being shipped are able to be received.

In order to keep everyone safe, there is a fairly extensive list of items that can not be packaged and shipped by any carrier to any individual no matter the circumstances. Things such as paint, acids, or bleach should not be packaged for shipping because they could spill from a puncture they received turning the transportation and become a fire hazard or skin irritant. A small amount of paint or glue from a child’s craft kit would have to be checked by the shipping and packaging company in order to ship it safely.

Having someone who is experienced in packaging various items is much less stressful on an individual then having to try and find everything one needs to do it themselves. The packaging supplies may cost a little, depending on if the counter help uses packaging peanuts or ‘air bags’, and then the only other cost would be the shipping cost to the destination of the package. Everything would be handled by the counter help.

A person could save themselves a little money by finding just the right box, purchasing some packing tape and wrapping the item in some old newspapers, however, this would take a considerable amount of time and effort. Plus, there would be no guarantee that the item would arrive in one piece.

Taking a package or two to the professionals at packaging in Chicago for preparation to be shipped anywhere in the world, an individual will not have to worry about their packages and the contents. Once a professional wrapper is allowed to carefully wrap and arrange the item in a box, there will be no need for the individual to go on a scavenger hunt for cardboard boxes or other items needed to pack up an item for a loved one. The item will arrive in one piece with out damage and the sender will not have to go to a department store to try and find cardboard boxes, which most don’t give out any longer because they recycle them for cash. There will be less stress on the shipping and the receiving ends.
