Celebrate World Book Day with PackageHopper
Are you ready to share your love of reading ahead of World Book and Copyright Day? Each year, on April 23rd, celebrate the scope of books by reading your favorite novel or sharing one with a friend.
In today's digital age, it's easier than ever to access a vast library of books worldwide. However, sometimes nothing can replace the feeling of holding a physical book in your hands. If you have a friend or loved one across the globe who loves books, chances are they may be missing out on some popular books unavailable in their country. Do your part in sharing the love of reading by helping them get their hands on some great reads this season. With some know-how, you can package and send books to international locations with PackageHopper. In this blog, we'll cover the steps to follow to ship books internationally and some trending book recommendations for 2023.
Select the Proper Packaging
Before you send your book, it's important to choose the right packaging to ensure it arrives at its destination in good condition. A padded envelope or a cardboard box is usually the best option. If you're sending multiple books, consider using a larger box and packing materials like bubble wrap to prevent the books from shifting around. Once your package is received at our PackageHopper facility, we'll ensure it's ready for international travel upon inspection.
Have the Correct Address Ready
When addressing your package, be sure to include all the necessary details, including the recipient's name, address, and phone number. Check the country's import regulations to ensure that your package is not prohibited or subject to customs fees.
Use PackageHopper to Select Your Ideal Courier
When sending books internationally, choosing a reliable courier service is essential. Some popular options include DHL, FedEx, and USPS. With PackageHopper, there's no need to spend large amounts of time on research to compare prices. After you enter your package information into our Shipping Rate Calculator, you will be presented with several courier options to choose from. Once you've made your selection and printed your shipping label, all you have to do is bring your package to a designated drop-off location, and your recipient will be reading before you know it.
