Holiday Shipping Tips
Updated: Monday, December 10 2012, 03:41 PM EST
Once you find the perfect gifts for folks on your list for many folks the stress shifts to the shipping. This week brings the start of several shipping/mailing deadlines for Christmas delivery guarantees.
Cody Siniard, Operations Manager at The UPS Store in Asheville showed News 13's Victoria Dunkle some tips for simplifying the shipping process.
They include making sure you use the right packing materials. The foam peanuts are better than newspaper because paper can get wet and ruin the gifts in the box.
Also come prepared with your identification, the address for the recipient, and be sure to remember what the gifts are. The shipper must provide a detailed list of what is in the package. "Christmas gifts" won't work.
