How to Ship Toys and Games


Shipping toys and games can be exciting, whether you’re a small business owner or an individual looking to send a gift to a loved one. However, proper packaging is crucial to ensure your items’ safe arrival. Understanding the cost considerations of shipping toys and games will help you plan your budget effectively. In this guide, we’ll explore valuable tips for packaging toys and games and provide insights into the cost aspects of shipping.


Shipping Toys and Games in 5 Simple Steps


  1. Select the right box: Start by choosing a sturdy corrugated box that can withstand the rigors of transit. Ensure the box is the right size, leaving minimal space to prevent movement during shipping. Avoid reusing old boxes as they may not provide adequate protection.
  2. Protect fragile items: Fragile toys and games with delicate components require additional protection. Use foam peanuts, air pillows, or crumpled newspaper to fill empty spaces and provide cushioning. Wrap individual items in bubble wrap or tissue paper and secure them with tape.
  3. Secure loose parts: If the toy or game has loose parts, ensure they are properly secured. Use small resealable bags or zip ties to keep them in place. Include clear instructions to help the recipient reassemble the toy if necessary.
  4. Seal the package securely: Seem the box with solid packaging tape once all items are packed. Reinforce the seams and corners for added strength. Label the box with clear “Fragile” or “Handle with Care” instructions to alert handlers.
  5. Include necessary documentation: Complete all required customs forms accurately when shipping internationally. Include a packing slip or invoice with the contents and their value to comply with customs regulations. This will facilitate smooth customs clearance and avoid delays.

LTL Shipping

LTL shipping involves combining multiple small shipments from different customers onto one truck, allowing each customer to share the shipment cost. Trust the experts at FreightCenter to give you the best prices and the most comprehensive options for all your LTL freight shipping needs.

Full Truckload

Truckload shipping, also known as full truckload (FTL), is a transportation option for freight that requires the entire trucks trailer space. Unlike LTL shipping, FTL shipping is reserved for larger commodities that exceed LTL weight and size limits, typically weighing more than 20,000 pounds or having dimensions that exceed 12 feet in length, 8 feet in width, and 8 feet in height. We deliver optimized solutions for full or partial truckloads and competitive dry van, flatbed, and refrigerated freight pricing. We can cover your full truckload shipping needs.

Expedited Services

Nationwide Expedited Trucking services move your freight securely and rapidly. Your freight requires fast delivery; our freight shipping experts can get your shipment fast, whether in one large box or a full truckload. Expedited shipping is a transportation option that prioritizes the speed of delivery for freight that needs to be shipped quickly. This can be especially important for urgent situations, such as engine repairs or replacements for critical machinery.

Specialized Freight Shipping

Specialized is a transportation option for items that require specialized handling, equipment, or shipping conditions. Specialized shipments may include high-value engines, oversized engines, or engines that require temperature-controlled transportation. The most reliable Specialized Freight Services rates from all the top carriers are just a few steps away. From white glove service to international shipping, we've got you covered.
