Shipping to Latvia
More and more people are shipping to Latvia making your choice of shipping companies that go there even better than it has been previously.
Preparing your shipment to Latvia
When preparing your shipment to Latvia, you will want to make sure that your shipment is properly secured within the package you have chosen to ship it in. Do not pack something in a box that doesn't quite fit it so that it can potentially get damaged in transit from hitting the sides of the box. On the other hand, you don't want to package it in a box that is too large so that it rattles around in there. Find a box that fits it properly with some extra padding in there to keep it safe while making its trek to Latvia.
Shipping destinations in Latvia
You can ship anywhere you choose in Latvia, with the major cities getting their deliveries a smidge faster than the more rural towns. Some examples of larger cities there include Riga, Ventspils, Ogre and Aluksne. Be sure to check with your shipping company as to if they are personally going to deliver your parcel if in a rural area or if they are going to contract with someone else once in the country.
Tracking your shipping to Latvia
It is a good idea to have a tracking number associated with your parcel when shipping to Latvia. This way you will know where it is in its route as well as when it gets there. You may also want to consider getting some insurance on it just in case something happens to it while being shipped. Insurance is generally not too expensive, about 1% of the declared value as a rule of thumb, but you should check with your shipping company to see what they offer and what their prices are when you are ready to ship.
