Trade shows are stressful events. But many people don’t have to worry about one of the most important details – portable display shipping. If the activities you attend are outside of the city, you may need to prepare for your exhibit to arrive at the venue. However, getting there is not enough! Your exhibit must arrive safely! Here are some tips to make sure your portable display arrives on time and completely.
Delivery Tip # 1: Attach your address label with clear tape.
Accidents may occur when your exhibit is delivered and you cannot control it. However, you can take steps to make sure that your address label is still attached to the outside of the container. If possible, use clear tape to pack labels to apply labels on all four sides. This will ensure that the corners will not be caught on the sorting equipment at the post office or with other service providers. However, it’s important to be careful not to cover any barcodes. If these are covered, it can be difficult for the device to read and may delay your delivery.
Delivery Tip # 2: Include business cards in each of your portable display boxes.
If your trade show requires more than one container delivery, it’s important to include your information in each container. Business cards are a great way to do this. But you should make sure to enter your mobile phone number if it’s not already printed on your business card. It won’t do anything good if someone finds a container and tries to call your office if you are traveling to a trade show.
Delivery Tip # 3: Add a shipping partner to your phone’s contact list.
What will happen if you go to an activity and find that you don’t have a portable display container? If you are like most people, you will pick up the phone and search for what’s happening. Even if what happens if you can’t find the number to your local office, the 800 numbers can let you run around while local contacts may be more likely to help. Add a local phone number, as well as your contact’s first and last name, so you can easily contact someone in the event of a problem.
Delivery Tip # 4: Insurance!
Don’t forget the insurance! Many providers will automatically include a certain amount of insurance, especially if you are shipping something by urgent means. However, it’s important that you ask this amount to make sure it’s enough to cover the cost of repairs or replacements in the event of an accident. Portable displays can be expensive to replace and making sure you have insurance can help reduce the explosion.
Delivery Tip # 5: Add a special identifier to your container.
You may have to wait for your container to be delivered to your display area. But if you have their identifiers, you may be able to convince members of your event, trade show to help you get yours first. Consider finding colorful and fun duct tape or ribbons to tie around your container. This will help make sure you have containers – and no one – before you start opening them out.
These tips can help ensure you’re ready for everything when it comes to portable displays. Use them and you will almost guarantee a successful experience.
