How To Send Mobile Phones Abroad
Looking out for the best logistics service provider that can arrange the transport and make sure the transport will run smoothly is something really necessary when you want to send mobile phone abroad (ส่ง โทรศัพท์ ไป ต่าง ประเทศ, which is the term in Thai). When sending mobiles, you have to ensure that you choose the right courier service and make sure the packaging procedures are carried carefully.
Proper packaging is crucial when shipping items to ensure safe transport. In a situation where you fail to package a mobile phone properly and it eventually gets spoilt, you will find out that the chance of a successful claim would be very low.
Things needed for packaging phones for shipping include the original box of your phone, or a box similar to the original in case you lost the original, a cardboard box, bubble wrap, packaging chips, duct tape and scissors.
How To Prepare A Phone For Shipping
The first step is packaging the phone using the original box. In a situation where you don’t have the box anymore, you will have to get a box similar to the original. After that, you seal the box with tape so it won’t be able to open. The next step is to place the phone in a larger box which is the cardboard box. You will have to pack the bottom of the box with bubble wrap to make a bed for the phone box. Then you fill the remaining spaces around the inner box with packaging chips making sure it doesn’t touch the walls of the outer box. Lastly, seal all the sides of the box with duct tape and attach the label to the parcel if necessary.
Restrictions On Sending Mobile Phones Abroad
While sending a phone abroad, the battery should be removed before packaging. In recent years, it was discovered that lithium-ion batteries used in phones had become a major cause of concern because they’re highly inflammable and can cause a fire outbreak when subjected to high pressure. This is where the Federal Express popularly known as FedEx comes in. FedEx is an American courier delivery service that takes the transport of packages containing lithium batteries very seriously being fully aware of the risks involved. So while sending a mobile phone, it is advisable that you find a fedex branch (fedex สาขา, which is the term in Thai) nearest to you because they comply with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations for transporting such items.
