How to Ship an Electric Juicer

Ship an Electric Juicer

A raw food lifestyle is all the rage at the moment with an increasing number of individuals discovering the phenomenal health benefits of incorporating more raw foods into their diet. Juicing probably is the most effective way of extracting the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals (phytonutrients) found in fruits and vegetables.

Proponents say that juicing is better than eating whole fruits and vegetables because your body can absorb the nutrients better. They add that juicing can reduce the risk of cancer, boost the immune system, help remove toxins from your body, aid digestion, and help in weight loss. This makes electric juicers highly popular these days.

Electric juicers can be expensive, ranging from $50 to $400. Thus, proper packing precautions must be observed when shipping these devices.  Here are some tips on how to properly pack and ship electric juicers.

Just like most kitchen appliances, the best way to ship an electric juicer is by double boxing in its orginal packaging. The manufacturer’s box is usually designed to protect the appliance inside with sufficient padding and cushions. Make sure that all parts of the juicer cannot move around inside the original packaging. If there is movement, fill any empty spaces with additional bubble wrap or crumpled paper. Also seal and reinforce the original box with packaging tape. If shipping as a gift, you may opt to wrap the box in gift wapping paper and attach a gift tag with your greetings and the recipient’s name.

If the original box is not available, wrap the juicer in several layers of bubble wrap and secure with tape. Place it inside a box with a layer of packing peanuts at the bottom. Fill the remaining empty spaces on the sides and top with more packaging materials to prevent the juicer from moving. Close and seal the box with packaging tape.

Prepare a slightly larger cardboard shipping box for double boxing. It should be big enough to accommodate the boxed electric juicer with extra couple of inch of spaces on all sides, top and bottom, for packing materials, Lay some packing peanuts at the bottom of the box and place the juicer on top. Fill the sides and top with more packing materials to keep the inner box in the center. The outer box should be well packed to keep the inner box from moving.

Close the outer box and seal with tape. Make sure that both top and bottom flaps are reinforced with packing tape to prevent them from burtsing open while in transit.

Address and label the package with “Fragile” and “This Side Up” before taking to your local post office or shipping company.
