How to check the reliability of fragile goods transportation services?

The next thing is to check the profiles of the bidders. You can check the reviews to know other users experience with their service. You can do some secondary research on the company and find out how reliable they are. To know how reliable a transportation company is, you will have to check some of these few pointers:

  1. Experience: How old is the company? You can know this from the profile page. An experienced transporter knows how to transport fragile goods properly. They are better at dealing with customers and exactly understand their requirements. A new company might lack experience, but some do better than experienced drivers. 
  2. Customer Reviews: Read the client reviews to know if the company or the driver can be trusted. With this, you can comprehend the level of service they provide. Also, check for fake reviews. It is difficult to differentiate. But if you spend some time, you can find which company to trust.
  3. Insurance: When contacting the company, ask if they have any insurance cover. If yes, then do they cover your goods too. Knowing this will help with the losses.
  4. Association: Check if they are part of any association like the National Couriers Service. This will assure you of the legitimacy of the business. However, it doesn’t guarantee the level of service. 

After checking the reliability, you can contact them and give further requirements. You can assign the job only when you have confidence in the company.

How to prepare for fragile goods couriers?

Have you experienced getting a botched-up package with labels like fragile, keep up, keep dry? Such nightmares are bound to happen with an inexperienced and unreliable transporter, even if your goods package is correctly labeled. Also, such incidences can occur because of improper packaging.

When buying any fragile item, choose a transportation service fitting the price. If you need to transport an antique Tang dynasty vase but choose a random transporter offering you the cheapest price, you will end up with a broken vase or no vase at all. Find a service provider reliable enough for the job. 

Next, click the picture of the item before packaging as proof of the condition at the time of packaging. Check for previous damages, if any, and make a note of it.

  • Follow these instructions when packing -
  • Pack the fragile items with bubble wrap or polystyrene
  • Secure the items in the box
  • Make sure the items do not have space to move
  • Provide enough padding in between when stacking fragile items 

Fragile items of different sizes, shapes, and materials require different kinds of packaging and also specialists to transport them safely. Items like a grand piano, large paintings, or pieces of china need different kinds of packaging, furniture delivery, and transportation services. Enquire with the transporter if they are capable of transporting your fragile goods.
