Driving through Boston looking for a FedEx Office that will accept to ship my used cell phone to my mom overseas. Most of the staff had no clue how to handle Lithium batteries while others simply refused to help me. I ended up at Neighborhood Parcel of Tewksbury and I was very happy when they helped me ship my phone, they packaged it, completed the export documents and all I had to do is sign!

Cell phones are very expensive. With the latest flagship models like iPhones and Samsung Galaxy north of $1,000, you’re probably looking to sell your old model to help offset the cost of your shiny new investment or hook up your old friend and family member overseas.

Once you decide who is worthy of your old phone, it’s time to ship it. If this is your first time shipping a cell phone, you might not be sure of the best way to get your old device to its new home. With each of the different types of shipments requiring different packaging and shipping rules, the whole process can feel more than a bit daunting. A cell phone, for example, must be packaged carefully because it contains a lithium-ion battery. Call us or stop by so we can take the mystery out of shipping!

How to Safely Package a Cell Phone

The last thing you want is for your cell phone to get damaged or broken during the international shipping process, so proper packaging is a key to safe delivery. Choose a cardboard box that will is rigid (we have them in stock), strong, and will fit the phone well. A box that is too big will leave too much room for the phone to move around inside and cost more to ship. A box that is 10″ x 4″ x 8″ is a good choice for shipping your cell phone.

The phone should be wrapped in two or three layers of bubble wrap as the first layer of protection and anti-static foam. Make sure you wrap the charger or USB cable seperately for the phone in bubble wrap as well.  Around the bubble wrap, place a layer of paper, packing chips, more bubble wrap, or cardboard pieces so the phone doesn’t shift around in the box during transit. 

Cell phones contain lithium batteries which need extra precaution. Cell phones are designed to keep batteries grounded when attached, so do not remove the batteries before shipping.  It’s also important to ensure that battery terminals are not exposed during shipping.

Tip:  Turn the phone off before packaging to help prevent your phone’s lithium battery from causing a hazardous situation during shipment.
