Shipping and packaging tips that will help you get your gifts and packages delivered safely and economically. Neighborhood Parcel of Lowell MA can help you make shipping and packaging simple and affordable.

We know that you are busy and don't have the time to fill shipping forms or find the right box for your shipment. We have decades of experience when it comes to both Domestic and International shipping services and we can help you make your next shipment easy and affordable. So here is how you can make your shipping simple and affordable:

  • Use at least two inches of packaging peanuts on each side of your package. This helps keep your items or cookies protected on the long journey from your house to Grandma’s, or even to the other side of the world. 


  • Use packing tape: Don’t use masking, cellophane or duct tape – packing tape is designed to help keep your boxes safe, secure and easy to open upon arrival. Our store has ample supplies of packaging tape.


  • Make sure the recipient’s addresses are visible both inside and outside of the package. Just in case the address becomes unreadable, this extra step can ensure that your package reaches its final destination.


  • Use a new box designed for shipping: You've put a lot of time, effort and dollars into those gifts and packages; don’t trust those precious items to a wimpy box you found in the basement. We have the approved  packaging to fit all your shipping needs starting as low as 99¢.

When I ship my computer, I will make sure to use a lot of packaging peanuts. I don't want anything to happen to it in the process. It is pretty expensive, so I will probably use bubble wrap as well. Jayden Eden | http://www.houstoncarton.com/products.php?pid=4
