Good Scales for Determining Shipping Rates

Published by:

We needed a scale in our office that could weigh letters and parcels accurately for postage and shipping labels. We got a couple of NCI shipping scales to use due to the volume of letters and packages we were sending out every day. It sure saves time doing it at the office and having the post office and various shipping carriers pick up everything instead of having to have an employee drive everything to the various shippers. The scales we have are very accurate. You can check a letter to make sure it is not over the weight limit, and you can weigh a box weighing 150 pounds. We do not ship anything that weighs that much. I’m glad, because I would have to lift it!

A good scale in the office is a must if you are shipping anything that can have a variable weight. Continue reading

Deals for SIM Card Only

Published by:

I need to get a new sim card from a new phone provider, because I am no longer going to do business with the company that used to provide me with phone service. I signed up for a contract with them and it became clear only a few months into the contract that it was not right for me. However, I was not able to get out of it previously without paying an exorbitant amount of money to do so. I am checking for SIM only deals because I already have a phone that I want to use with my new phone provider and I do not want to have to buy another phone.

I am pretty excited about getting a new phone provider because being under my previous contract was a bit of a nightmare, and it felt like it was never going to end there for awhile. So it is quite a relief now that it is finally over with and I do not have to worry about it anymore. I am going to try to save money with my new provider and get a similar level of service. I want to have a good amount of data, but not too much. I am not sure exactly what would be right for me and so I am going to try to look over my history on my phone and see roughly how much data I have been using on a monthly basis. That should give me a better idea as to what to look for in a new provider. I am not going to settle for a deal that I am not happy with, so long as I have the opportunity to find better deals out there. So I am pretty confident that I will find one that works.

The Anxiety of Tech Support

Published by:

Working as an help desk outsource agent has been one of the best decisions that I decided to make. I can admit that I often make poor decisions when it comes to important choices that have to be made. I have long tried to find a place where I can put my skills to good use. I don’t have a great deal of education at my back but I do have a lot of skill that I have gained over the years from working odd jobs. Finding a job that doesn’t require you to have a degree has become more and more difficult. Thankfully, tech support centers are always hiring and ever since I have been able to work comfortably from my own home, I have really begun to enjoy all that it has to offer me. The flexible hours that outsourcing allows for is another great perk. I feel very lucky that I was able to find such a great, reliable company.

Being able to work comfortably has changed my life. I don’t know anyone who actually enjoys working within those sort of caustic environments, they offer little in the way of inspiration of creativity. The job itself is one that is meant to shoulder the brunt of the worst of the calls while sending more complicated issues further down the line. As a customer support rep. you are technically the first line of defense. You help with those issues that are readily solved while handling the to day customer service issues that customers seem to be experience. In the process, you filter out those customers who are more aggressive with empathy statements. It’s a process that in no way is fun but it can be a process that is rewarding its own, unique way. I do enjoy solving problems; I just wish I had better customers!

Getting Internet for a Travel Camper

Published by:

Satellite Internet Service Provider - SkyWay USA rural broadband ...The wife and I have started thinking about getting an RV. To be exact we are looking at the new Airstream Land yacht. Actually they call it an Interstate. It has a Mercedes chassis, they make trucks in case you did not know. This is not a lot different than driving a large van to be honest. That is what I want. I do not want something that requires any type of Commercial Driver’s license, which is the case for some large RV models. This is like driving a car pretty much. I am looking at satellite internet reviews and wondering exactly how hard and how expensive it would be to get internet for a little RV like this one.
