So, while you probably can’t drive the delivery truck to the destination yourself, there are a few simple steps you can take prior to sending the package to help ensure a successful delivery.
Shipping jewelry has been a source of frustration within the industry for a very long time. Even with technology continuing to advance there are plenty of times when it doesn’t seem any easier. It's time-consuming to coordinate logistics — and then shipments get delayed. Merchandise can get damaged in transit — or worse, it can be stolen.
Do you dread dropping off a shipment of jewelry because you fear that your package of valuables could be lost, damaged, or stolen?
Maybe that fear stems from the confusion about the options available when shipping a package. After all, there are numerous carriers to choose from and even one of the most widely accessible — The United States Postal Service® (USPS) — has many services with different options.
