How Event Planners Can Keep Shipping Costs Down
January 3, 2014
It’s the bane of every event planner’s existence: The budget. Event planners are always trying to find the best deals for fast shipping in Burlington, Oakville, Milton and Toronto. Their livelihood depends on staying on budget, while ensuring the show goes on.
Here are a few tips when trying to get the best value for your shipping dollar:
Look at the Little Guys
The biggest shipping companies don’t always provide the most value.
Smaller and independent companies may be willing to do more to earn your business. They want your repeat business and referrals. Which leads us to….
The biggest savings come from companies who want you to come back. If you can establish one company as your go-to, or even deal with the same person each time, you’re going to get more wiggle room on pricing. They will also be more willing to go the extra mile on rush jobs.
Make sure you have a clear idea of exactly what you need from your end, to make sure your shipping company knows exactly what you need. For example, check with your facility to find out how exhibitors should deliver or ship their exhibits prior to the show.
