Tips for Shipping Electronics:
You can send these sensitive goods safely and worry-free with sufficient forethought and preparation. We have compiled five shipping recommendations for electronics to help you avoid expensive damage and consumer refunds.
Almost all portable electrical devices can be recharged. Powerful lithium-ion batteries offer the recharge capacity required in modern high-tech goods. However, they have a lot more power than regular dry cell batteries.
When it comes to shipping, more power entails more responsibility. The risk of a possible spark or explosion is high during air travel. Batteries must be taken out and packaged correctly in a separate container. It entails insulating and coating them with a non-conductive substance to safeguard any exposed terminals.
Electronics with sensitive components:
Electronics cannot all be delivered in the same manner. Take extra care to protect electronics with sensitive components during shipping from unusual physical circumstances that would not damage standard gadgets.
Products may be sensitive to intense g-forces. In actuality, “g-factors” exist for practically every product. The typical flat-screen television is “moderately delicate” between 60 and 85, whereas scientific and sensitive aviation equipment has the lowest g-factors between 15 and 25. The more important it will be to safeguard gadgets from g-forces, the lower the value.
EMI/RF frequencies can affect the sensitivity of some electrical components. Cover such equipment with aluminum shielding for protection. If not protected, such gadgets would be rendered worthless when they arrive. It is advised not to depend on your local pack and ship location to be familiar with the parameters for each item when sending electronics with unique sensitivity.
Choosing Proper Shipping Material:
When transporting electronics, it’s crucial to utilize the proper materials. The simplest method to expose electronics to potential harm is to take shortcuts or use sub-standard packaging materials. Depending on the kind of electrical gadget you are sending, carefully choose packaging materials like:
- Strong Boxes
- Void Fillers
- Water Activated Tapes
Most distributors frequently choose cardboard boxes as their go-to shipping container when setting up a shipment. Corrugated containers are strongly advised for electronics, nevertheless. A ruffled fluting is sandwiched between an interior and an exterior layer in corrugated boxes. Thus, a robust and reusable container is formed that is more resistant to water damage and collapse than its paper and cardboard competitors.
Electronics typically have unusual shapes. There will be an air gap that has to be filled unless you are delivering an item in its original packing. There are several ways to occupy the space within a shipping container, including:
- Packaging Peanuts
- Air cushions
- Bubble wrap
The paper should not be used as a filler since the material cannot maintain its form and protect the items in the box.
The tape’s water-activated adhesive creates a solid, long-lasting contact with the shipping container. Any tampering will be visible because of the seal’s strength.
Understanding Laws and Regulations:
The necessary rules and regulations each shipper must follow are among the most ignored components of shipping electronics. Check the import laws of the country you are shipping to, even though there are national and international standards. Otherwise, your consumer could never receive your pricey electrical equipment.
Devices will have their shipping specifications that may need to be followed to preserve warranties or other guarantees, in addition to knowing what is permitted in any shipment.
Many additional factors need to be taken into account when exporting internationally. Different countries have different customs and laws. Additionally, the customs office in the destination country may charge a tax depending on the worth of your electronic gadget.
Insurance of Electronics:
The big shipping carriers have a very high level of dependability. The reliability of shipments locally and internationally has increased thanks to technological advancements and tracking software. But mistakes may and do happen. Understanding the need for package insurance while sending electronics is essential, especially for expensive items.
Even while each carrier offers insurance, it’s sometimes preferable to look for third-party insurance from businesses like Custom Crating and Logistics, which provide top-notch ecommerce shipping solutions. Coverage is usually cost-effective with the ability to buy higher limits and insure packages to more countries. Payment also happens much more quickly if you need to submit a claim.
Packing Cords and Accessories:
At the very least, most devices have a charging wire. Other types of equipment could come with a variety of extra attachments. Each component has to be individually wrapped and fastened within the shipping box.
Separating the wires from the accessories will allow you to identify each component for further identification. Your cargo will also be much better organized and protected from harm caused by cords, items, and extras rubbing up against one another.
You can ship any electronic with Custom Crating and Logistics domestically and internationally. Everything is taken care of, down to the boxes and wrapping.
