Before your trip to Pak Mail – especially if it’s part of your “honey do” list – be prepared with the following shipping information:

  • Address and phone number of the recipient (must be a physical address for UPS, FedEx, and DHL).
  • Contents of the package (if already packed and sealed). Save time and let Pak Mail pack for you.
  • Value of the items.
  • When you would like the package to arrive.

You will be asked if the package is safe to leave on the porch. Due to reports of porch theft this time of year, we recommend a delivery signature on most packages. We can also ship to the recipient’s work address.

Merry Christmas!
