Importance of Choosing a Reliable Shipping Company

It is always vital to recognise the importance of getting a good shipping company, particularly if you live in a country like Ireland, which is an island. There have been countless horror stories through the years of people shipping from Ireland getting packages late, goods not been delivered in time for Christmas, items upon delivery being damaged, packages going to the wrong address, receiving the wrong packages and in some cases packages just going missing entirely.

This unfortunate list of mishaps has blighted people in Ireland for many years due to our island location and has made the question of finding reliable shipping companies in Ireland even more important. You could say this importance has increased particularly in recent times with the huge increase in goods purchased over the internet and the rise in emigration.

Tips when you are shipping from Ireland and looking for reliable shipping companies:

  • How reputable are the shipping company? Have they been known to underperform for other people in the past – look for testimonials?
  • Where you are shipping from will be a big factor in the overall cost of the freight; whether it be personal goods, excessive baggage or even a car.
  • When do you need the item shipped? Different shipping companies in Ireland will provide varied lengths of time on delivery service, depending what country you are shipping from.
  • Does the freight company ship the type of goods you need moved? Is there size restrictions, weight cost additions, etc.

 

Other things to bear in mind; some providers will request that someone has to be there to sign for the item between business hours Monday to Friday. Others maybe a bit more flexible when it comes to this and may deliver outside of business hours and maybe even on Saturdays. You should research this before hand and make sure that someone can commit to be there to sign for the package/container, otherwise you may have to take a lengthy trip to a depot to collect the item or delivery would have to be rearranged.

When you are shipping from Ireland internationally you have to do your homework and find a quality service, as otherwise you could be left disappointed. For most people the two main factors will be cost and time when choosing reliable shipping companies in Ireland. You need to properly research the type of goods you need shipped and where you will be shipping them from and when exactly you need them to arrive.

For larger items like cars, there is obviously a little bit more to consider in the shipping process but a lot of this stress can be reduced and often removed entirely if you get the right shipping provider.
