If you would like to safely ship a watch, it is wise to take the steps below into consideration:
When shipping luxury watches internationally, every sender wants to make sure that their timepieces are as protected as they could be. The first step in achieving this goal is knowing which materials to use for the task of packing watches for shipping. At Eurosender, we recommend the following materials:
Now that you have all the right packaging materials, you can proceed with packing the watch. Follow these rules and you will get a bullet-proof package that will certainly make shipping valuable watches a lot less stressful for you.
If you, however, want to use an ordinary box, you have to fill it at least halfway with the cushioning material of your choice. Then place the watch in the middle of the box and add some more cushioning material. When the watch is completely surrounded with the cushioning, it should not be able to move. If it stays firmly in place when you shake the box, you did a good job, which means that you can seal the box. To make the content extra safe, wrap the box (the original or the ordinary one) in bubble wrap.
We recommend that you always keep the original invoice for the items you are going to ship. This serves as a proof of its value and is, therefore, a document that the courier companies normally require if you start a claim procedure.
Shipping luxury watches internationally can seem a bit risky if one does not choose the right courier service or take care of extra protection, but since courier service are getting better and better and packaging materials stronger, sending even more valuable timepieces away in packages is an ever more popular practice. We asked some of our satisfied customers about their reasons for shipping watches internationally.
