Need Disposal of Overstock or Defective Items? ShipByMail Can Help!admin
With a primary business model that is focused on international shipments, it might seem strange to hear that some clients simply want their items destroyed. And yet, this is a reality for a portion of ShipByMail customers: they need items returned from a buyer but prefer not to invest in the additional costs of a return international shipment.
There are a number of scenarios where businesses prefer to have their goods disposed of rather than returned:
- An international merchant needs to retrieve an item from a buyer, but the value of the item is less than the price of shipping. This means that it is more cost effective to dispose of the item than to ship it.
- An item is returned but is prohibited to be exported from Canada.
- An item is returned but is prohibited from being imported to the merchant’s country of
- An item is returned but is simply unwanted.
Whatever your reasons for wanting an item disposed of, they are not uncommon. Many individuals or businesses simply don’t want the hassle of dealing with unwanted merchandise, which carries its own price tag and complications. At ShipByMail , we can handle this for you and save you the burden of paying shipping fees or receiving unwanted items.
The ShipByMail fee for package disposal is $5 CDN. That’s right. We charge $5 to dispose of any package, regardless of the number of individual items inside.
