First of all shipping a laptop in the mail or any electronic device should be a fairly straight forward process. The only things you'll need are a properly sized box, (we'll get to that next) packaging material, and tape to ensure it's all closed up. Anything else from there is most likely not needed but can be used for good measure. We have tons of people contact us at Quick Laptop Cash for how to properly ship their laptop in so let us try and clarify exactly what should be done when preparing the computer for shipping.
What Box to Ship it with?
The first thing you have to pick is what size box is going to work for you. If you're sending a 10” laptop versus a 17” laptop the size of the box and amount of packaging material you will need is going to be far different. Fedex and UPS both say there should be around 2-3” of packing from the laptop and the box in every direction. If you don't have this barrier or there is no packaging at all UPS and Fedex will almost instantly deny your claim due to negligence on your part. The last thing we want to happen is a laptop show up with a broken screen or damaged plastics because it just wasn't packaged right, we pride ourselves on paying the most for used laptops and don't want to see a problem from just the shipping.
What Packaging Materials Should You Use
We highly recommend to either use anti static packaging peanuts or bubble wrap. Either of these packing materials works great for ensuring the item will reach it's destination unharmed. If there is not sufficient packaging and there is a problem with it being broken or damaged during shipping UPS will not cover the claim so we highly recommend getting it packaged well by someone professionally or by using our supplied box and shipping materials. We'd love to help you sell a computer but it must first arrive in good shape so we can get you all the money you deserve.
If you don't want to deal with waiting for a box shipped from us in the mail or are too worried about the packaging Fedex offers a very safe and secure laptop specific shipping box. These boxes are top notch and we have NEVER had a problem with them so they're the safest bet if it's a valuable laptop. You can find the box at this link here (link)
Where Can You Drop Off the Package?
Once you have it all boxed up and ready to be sent out where can you drop off your box for shipment? Quick Laptop Cash uses UPS exclusively so for drop off you'll need to either schedule a pick up or the easier and quicker option is to go to your local UPS shipping center and drop the box off with it's free pre-paid shipping label attached! Also any private shipping center will be able to help you as well with getting it sent off but a UPS store is still the preferred method to get it sent out as fast as possible.
