It would seem that the world is very small today. And all this because most of us use the Internet, so we can quickly “move” from one end of the world to the other. In addition, from one country to another, we can move quickly through airplanes, and what’s more the cost of such “travels” are not very large.
Certainly when we ask our parents or grandparents what it looked like a few dozen years ago, they will tell us quickly that everything was completely different, and above all longer. A simple letter, sent from one country to another, took many days to reach the recipient from the recipient. Today? When we send an email, the recipient gets it after a few seconds, no matter in which country he lives. Similarly, the case looks like when we send parcels to other countries. A dozen or so years ago, it was very time-consuming and today, it takes only 2-3 days.
Because none of us likes to overpay, let’s think about what we can do to not overpay for international shipments. First of all, do not order the first better courier, whose phone number will fall into our hands. Competition on the courier market is huge today, so courier companies must “fight” for customers, often through lower prices. Therefore, individual offers may significantly differ in terms of “price”, and this difference may even reach 50-60%. Therefore, before we decide to choose a courier company, let’s compare their prices. The best and the fastest we can do it on the Internet, where there are several price comparison websites for courier services.
When looking for the cheapest transport company, we will quickly find out that the price for the service depends largely on the weight of the package and its dimensions. The cheapest packages are standard sizes (the sum of all sides of the package, should not exceed 170 cm), as well as the parcels with the lowest weight. Therefore, of course, if possible, try to arrange the shipped goods so that the parcel sizes do not exceed the required dimensions. Similarly, the case looks like weight. If only something unnecessary from our pack can be rejected – let’s do it. For sure, we will save on this.
There is another way to reduce the costs associated with sending parcels to other countries. Negotiations are this way. We can always try to reduce costs for the courier, especially when we send parcels quite often. Do not be afraid of it, because it can really bring us additional savings.
Is it possible to send parcels from one country to another relatively cheap today? Fortunately, yes. Let us only apply to the advice given, and in our portfolio will be a lot of cash, which we can spend on any purpose.
