Shipping jewellery internationally, especially precious jewellery, can quickly become a headache! It can be a very stressful process, but thanks to this article and our tips, you will find the best way to ship your jewellery internationally!
Here are some of the best tips and advice to make your international jewellery shipment as safe as possible.
How to pack jewellery for shipping?
When packing your jewellery, do not forget that the treatment received by postal services in other countries and during the transportation is not the softest. It is very important to choose a high quality material packaging to avoid any problem or breakage. A sturdy box will do the job!
My tips here is to add padding material like bubble wrap to fill up empty space in the box or to wrap your jewellery in a paper or something that will hold it still during the transportation to avoid any sound coming from the box.
The goal is to avoid any empty space in the parcel for the jewellery not to knock around the box (this could cause damage to your product and also draw attention to your parcel).
Firmly pack your jewellery in its box and always double your packaging just in case: put your box in another box or carton and seal it with tape.
Shipping jewellery: discretion needed
Nobody needs to know what is inside your boxes. The best way to send your jewellery internationally (or not!) is to hide the brand imagery or any piece of advice that could reveal information about the value of what is inside the parcel.
Use a neutral container to ship your jewellery internationally and keep the outside information to the classic shipping and client information to avoid any temptation from any potential robber.
Insurance when shipping jewellery
One of the best advice to give you: insure your parcel!
For high value items such as jewellery and even more when this is for an international shipment, the importance of the insurance shall not be forgotten. My advice here is to take extra precautions for your shipment to ensure safety.
Secursus is one of the best insurance online (covering up to 80,000$ against loss, theft and breakage) and will give you in a few seconds a very good quote for the insurance of your shipment.
The courier you choose and the service you choose will determine how long it will take for your jewellery to arrive at its destination. I am sure that you agree that the fastest, the better. But do not forget to opt for a very serious courier like Fedex, DHL, UPS for exemple. They will offer services like signature-on-receipts which is very important to avoid having your parcel stolen by anyone as proof of reception is needed.
You can easily get a quote online to find the best prices to send your jewellery. You can use comparators such as Parcel2Go or MyFlyingBox for example: they are comparators that will give you the cheapest prices for your shipment!
Indeed, do not forget that shipping internationally is usually more expensive than shipping locally.
