HSN Excess Packaging in Shipments
I received a shipment today with 4 mugs in tins measuring approx. 4 x 5 inches. These were packed in 4 separate boxes measuring approx. 13 x 13 inches square and FILLED with styrofoan peanuts which were then packed into an approximately 2 foot square box. Those 4 tins could have been wrapped very well in bubble wrap and ALL could have still fit into ONE 13 x 13 inch box!
What a waste of resources and materials and now I have to dispose of all this excess cardboard and styrofoam. Essentially I was shipped a box of garbage that my town is now responsible for wasting THEIR resources to recycle. The styrofoam will end up in a landfill because neither my town or county recycles it. This is unacceptable from a company that should know better.
I will not order from HSN again.
I have been getting my shipments in just one box. no damage thank god. I’m also happier.
I agree, if they could 1) put multiple items in the same box and not pack like they are shipping overseas, I believe the shipping cost would be MUCH cheaper. The shipping charges sometimes stops me from buying the item.
Unfortunately I’ve had my fair share of damaged items due to inadequate packaging from HSN and other sites. So I was very impressed by the packaging of the fragile Disney/HSN Alice items. Every cup, teapot, plate, mug, etc. arrived in perfect condition. Many of these items are totally sold out and can’t be replaced. Thanks HSN! Sure do appreciate it!!!
Think the reason for this is extra security for the customer and HSN in regards to products not getting damaged during shipping. Can not count the times I received damaged goods (Not HSN) upon delivery.
I always take non-recyclable packaging materials to one of those postal/shipping stores for reuse.
