Parcel delivery to Sierra Leone
Because the Republic of Sierra Leone is on the coast in West Africa, you have the option to ship there via ocean cargo freight liners, as well as air mail and road freight trucks. Typically you will find the air mail and the road freight trucks to be better options for you when shipping parcels as a rule of thumb, but this may not necessarily be the case with your specific goods that you are trying to ship there. It is best to check around for both the price quotes and for their time estimates as that may influence your decision as well. And no matter what, be sure to check the reputation of the company you are thinking of going with yo make sure they have a good track record of getting parcels delivered on time and without damage.
Parcel preparation when delivering to Sierra Leone
Before you send your parcels out the door to the Republic of Sierra Leone, you will want to make sure they are packaged appropriately. This means that you need to choose a box or package that fits your goods securely so that they do not shift and rattle around much while in transit. You also need to make sure that your paperwork is in order before you ship your items. If you are missing paperwork, your parcel will get flagged once it gets to the Customs office upon arrival to the country and it is a bit difficult to straighten out once it is out of your hands, although it can be done.
