Any Do’s n Don’ts for shipping?

Many! Do not pack any opened bottles in case they leak. Do not pack guns, ammunition, food and anything hazardous including cleaning materials. Do not use an unlicensed company with a cheap rate. If the price sounds too good to be true it is probably a fraud! We ship large volumes and therefore get slightly better rates than most and keep overheads low, therefore our prices are good. If you find a rate much lower than ours, be very careful, there are a lot of cowboy operators that will give you a very cheap price and once they have your things they will find an excuse for doubling your price. Do use licensed professionals. In the USA, you need to have a license from a government division called the Federal Maritime Commission. (FMC) in order to carry out international moving from the USA. Do not use any company that does not have an FMC license. Make sure your boxes are all packed tight and well-taped shut. Make sure your name is on all pieces. Do use a lot of bubble wrap. Do check our references and Google 5 star reviews. Use our labels to stick on all items as well as the outside of your pallet or U Crate.
