Shipping Large & Awkward Equipment

July 11th, 2017 by

Pak Mail makes it easy to pack & ship large items

This elliptical exercise machine shipped after the July 4th holiday. Steps for packing a large item like this include:

  • Attach the machine to a sturdy pallet with braces under the legs to keep it from shifting in transit.
  • Stabilize the moving arms with stretch wrap.
  • Build a very large custom-made double-wall corrugated cover and attach it to the pallet with wood staples.
  • Install metal strapping over the box to secure it to the pallet.

Pak Mail ships big stuff!

Pak Mail Prepares Pallets for International Shipping

June 30th, 2017 by

Yes, pallets like this tend to look alike. It’s what’s inside that counts. This one contains broadcast equipment from Matchsports, the company that provided live coverage of the June 25 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. Matchsports arranged the shipping to Australia; Pak Mail ensured that everything was packed securely for safe transit. We did not use wood on this one, so there are no concerns with shipping it internationally.

June 23rd, 2017 by

Pak Mail is a member of the Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce

The June 20th meeting of the Manitou Springs Business Networking Group was hosted by Commonwheel Artists Co-op on Canon Ave. What a fun place to hold a morning meeting! The gallery represents talented artists creating jewelry, wearables, wall art, pottery and mixed media – something for everyone’s budget.

The Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce presented its new branding and logo – Escape & Enjoy. All in attendance received a goodie bag from the chamber. Check out this great little town!

Pak Mail – Busy Season – Part 4

Building a picture crate

Last week’s shipping challenges included artwork that required a wooden crate. We often build them for bronze artwork; sometimes for medical equipment. This crate was for a large, framed historic piece of art from a local gallery.

Furniture shipping

This is the only photo of this project; it was packed and out the back door – one, two three. The table and six chairs were purchased at Consign and Design, a fantastic shop on Garden of the Gods Rd, down the road from Pak Mail. The chairs were packed in pairs and shipped on a pallet with the table. All pieces were protected with felt blankets and styro-lined custom boxes.

Pak Mail – Shipping, Shipping, and More Shipping

June 21st, 2017 by

Busy season for packing and shipping

Being inundated with packing and shipping projects – believe it or not – is a fun challenge. Last week the guys picked up gallery items and household goods, quoted walk-in freight shipments,  packed everything securely, and shipped with our contracted carriers. This was in addition to small package shipping – artwork from the Commonwheel Artists Co-op in Manitou Springs, birthday gifts, and overnight documents. All deadlines were met!
