- Weight and fragility - when you are shipping spare parts for your Cadillac, don't mix brake pads with headlights. It might seem logical now but we solve this problem several times a week and it doesn't matter how properly you pack it because handling by carrier and gravity will sooner or later cause that brakepads will take a look where are bulbs hiding..
- Length and volume - if you combine in one shipment samurai sword and rubber ball for excercising, belive me, it doesn't match. The volume of shipment will reach limits of postal services or will inflate shipping price a lot because huge light package equals expensive shipping.
