Shipping a trade show booth isn’t like shipping Christmas presents. Luckily, there are shipping firms that specialize in trade show shipping. Here are a few tips for choosing the right one.
Ask about preferred carriers. The trade show you’re attending may work with a preferred carrier that can offer discounts to businesses exhibiting at the show.
Ask for referrals. Ask trade show organizations, colleagues and professionals in your industry, and other companies who’ve used trade show shipping firms before.
Look for experience and skill. Look for a shipping company that understands the special requirements involved in shipping trade show booths and specializes in logistics as well as transport.
Know exactly when the booth with arrive. Your employees need adequate time to unpack and assemble your booth before the show, and you may not be able to do this the night before.
Give yourself time. With everything involved in planning to ship your booth to a trade show, you’ll need to select a vendor and arrange the logistics in plenty of time.
Get the quote up front. Ask the company you choose to provide you with a written price quote that covers all transportation services, weight costs and transportation time.
A lot goes into getting your booth safely to the trade show and back home again. Do your homework and select a shipping company with the experience and skill to do a good job. If you do, you’re more likely to see your booth ship smoothly and arrive on time.
