  • Arrange couriers for your customer for easy pick-up and transportation handling. 
  • Let customers process their returns online. 
  • Create a separate space for packages that are needed to be returned for quick sorting.

Use the appropriately sized boxes.

Heavy items, such as books, should be placed in small boxes, while lighter items should be placed in more prominent boxers. This allows movers to organize and pack boxes into the moving truck easily. To avoid damaging breakables, pack heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on top.

Establish Online Package Management.
