Low Price Packaging Shipping Supplies Are Essential
For Antiques-Collectables-Art. "Cheap, cheap, cheap", Save money, build your business!
Low price packaging shipping supplies can save you a fortune over time. As dealers on eBay and other sites we're often asked by folks "where do you buy your boxes, bubble wrap, tape and material."
We do a lot of shipping, we go through dozens of rolls of bubble wrap and bags of packing peanuts pretty regularly and have for decades. As a result, we've spent a fair bit of time finding ways to cut costs by finding the least expensive packaging material possible. A roll of bubble wrap from one supplier can cost $65 plus delivery and other vendors sell exactly the same type for $35 with FREE SHIPPING. How this is possible is due to many factors, not the least of which is how good one supplier is over another in negotiating volume discounts and how much they actually buy.
What prices are when it comes to packaging, the rule is: The more your supplier buys, the cheaper he/she can sell it. Pretty simple
Low Price Packaging Shipping Supplies, The Basic Things You Can Really Save Money On
Essential Shipping Supplies: Bubble Wrap, Wrapping Paper, Packing Tape, Boxes (inner and outer), Tape Gun, Digital Scales, Box Reducer (a must have)
As much as we like eBay for many things, we've found AMAZON is pretty much unbeatable on price for items with FREE shipping. This seems to hold true even when compared to eBay it
ems offering Free Shipping. I cannot emphasize the importance of FREE Shipping enough, while the cost per box for example might be slightly higher (often not), when you add in typical shipping charges you save a small fortune. This is especially true for larger orders as most box companies, including Uline, use FREIGHT carriers which can add as much as a dollar to the cost of each box.
If you Ship Via USPS, Remember they offer MANY Free Boxes
