College Student Shipping – Home or Abroad

Colorado College Student Shipping on a Pallet

Shipping a student from Colorado Springs

Student shipping from Colorado College or UCCS  – home for summer break, to a new college for extended classes, or abroad for intensive studies – is easy with the right help. It’s a small move of the accumulated stuff after a year in a dorm room or small apartment.

Make the necessary shipping arrangements before final exams and clear the plate for studying, final projects, and, of course, socializing. Start the process by organizing. Ask some questions.

  • What can be recycled? Organizations like Discover Goodwill of Southern and Western Colorado thrive on donations of gently used clothing, household goods, furniture, and electronics. Old cell phones can be donated to Cell Phones for Soldiers.
  • What can be discarded? Get rid of the items that are no longer useful and cannot be donated or re-purposed.
  • What is absolutely needed for the final few weeks at school? This is anything that can be safely packed in a suitcase. Everything else can be shipped ahead. Pak Mail can also pick up, pack, and store all of the non-essential items, and ship them when the final boxes are ready.
  • What items require special packing? It’s a definite no-no to pack electronics in the middle of clothing. Leave those items for the professionals.

There are several ways to ship a student… their stuff, that is. If there are three or four boxes, UPS or FedEx (DHL for international) is probably the best option. If there are more boxes and a myriad of sports equipment, shipping them all together on a pallet with an LTL truck carrier is more cost effective. US Air Force Academy foot lockers are best shipped on a pallet.

Get an estimate, arrange for pickup and shipping, and get on with studying.

What Happens When the Crew Gets the Flu?

March 5th, 2017 by

Ship happens!

Bad news: The flu hit Pak Mail Colorado last week, adding a bit of craziness to what turned out to be a very busy six days.

Good news: We took turns catching it, including the grandkids. That helped.

Good news: Daily operations — small package shipping (UPS, FedEx, DHL, USPS), mail sorting, packing and shipping quotes — all went smoothly, even through solo shifts. Our customers are awesome and very understanding… THANK YOU!

Prepping Headboard for Custom Boxed Freight Shipment

Good news: Some of the freight shipments left the store during the week. Saturday we all tackled the remaining freight shipments and one painting for FedEx Ground (small package). Happy to say they’re all packed and ready for shipment on Monday! Two of the freight shipments are shown here; more pics to follow.
