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.

Pak Mail Welcomes 2017 With Gratitude for 2016

January 19th, 2017 by

Grateful for Packing and Shipping

Last year provided quite a ride and lots of reasons to be grateful.

  • My four siblings and I transitioned our elderly parents from their home to assisted living. Both Mom and Dad are still enjoying each other’s company after 64 years of marriage.
  • Senior downsizing done with love.

    The box truck we acquired in Spring 2015 blew its engine within the first month. Our mechanic replaced the engine and had it running like new in no time. The lift gate makes the large freight jobs easy!

  • New paint and furnishings freshened up the retail area of our store. Customers provide lots of fun comments and kudos.
  • Our Pak Mail franchise is now part of a larger franchise — Annex Brands.
  • Pak Mail 232 has been in the same location since 1996! We will celebrate nine years of ownership at the end of February 2017.

Thank you to our customers! Some customers have been with us “forever,” some joined us recently, and some are yet to require our services. Whether it’s a private mailbox and a safe place to receive packages, notary services, a small gift shipping to Aunt Millie, documents shipping overnight, a custom box with protective packaging, or a large shipment requiring a pallet, rely on Pak Mail.

Thank you!

Chris

Pak Mail – 2016 Toys for Tots Drop-off Location

November 30th, 2016 by

Holiday Giving – Drop off new, unwrapped toys at Pak Mail Colorado from now until December 15.

Toys for Tots was founded in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR, in Los Angeles, California. Five thousand toys were collected that year during the campaign before Christmas. The first toy was a handmade doll.

Almost 50 years later, in 1995, the Secretary of Defense approved Toys for Tots as an official activity of the US Marine Corps and an official mission of the Marine Corps Reserve. The 2012 Toys for Tots campaign distributed nearly 16.8 million toys to more than 7 million children.

The local Toys for Tots coordinator contacted us to join the 2016 campaign. This is Toys for Tots’ 100-year anniversary and  Pak Mail Colorado’s fifth year as a Colorado Springs Toys for Tots drop-off location. The program’s mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys and to distribute them as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. Their goal is to provide these children with a message of hope and to help them experience the joy of Christmas.

Providing a convenient drop-off location for Toys for Tots fits in well with Pak Mail Colorado’s other community service projects: Cell Phones for Soldiers and Styrofoam and packing peanut recycling. Giving back to the community is what it’s all about.

There are several ways to get involved; see the Toys for Tots Call to Action. The ultimate success of the annual campaign depends on local community support and the generosity of folks who donate the toys. It’s an honor to play our part. Thank you for doing your part to help families in need.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our family to yours!


Packing and Shipping Collectibles

March 8th, 2016 by
packing and shipping collectibles - Yoda

Jim with Yoda

A breakfast networking meeting with folks from the Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce was the beginning of a delightful day. Upon my return home, my husband Jim invited me to stay home for the day. Perfect!

First on the agenda was clearing my mind. A brisk two-mile walk and then fiber spinning did the trick. Spinning tends to empty my mind of clutter and focus it on a specific task. Today the rhythm of the wheel and the creation of yarn from fluff – llama, wool, and mohair – pushed me to look around at the collections acquired throughout a 40-plus-year-and-counting marriage. Then I started thinking about some of the treasures we ship for our customers – assortments of sentimental photos, stamps, coins, antique dolls, porcelain figurines, and a high-value Star Wars® prop.

This reverie brought to mind packing and shipping collectibles in our Pak Mail store. Books, photos, letters, and other non-fragile items may only need protection with acid-proof paper or simple poly bags. Kachina dolls are packed with lots of packing peanuts and then double boxed. Lladro® or Hummel® figurines and pottery are wrapped in bubble wrap, floated in peanuts, and boxed or double boxed, depending on the value and/or sentimentality. Intricate and very fragile porcelain pieces are floated in mini-peanuts surrounded with bubble wrap and then floated in standard packing peanuts and double boxed. High-value collectibles like Yoda are secured in custom crates.

The shipping method is based on package size and weight, fragility of the item, total number of boxes, value, and destination. Smaller items ship with UPS, FedEx, US Priority Mail, or DHL (international only).

Simpich Dolls

Simpich Doll Collection

Larger items or larger quantities of boxes ship with various freight carriers. The small move of household goods that included Yoda was shipped to Hawaii via ocean freight.

It was nice to have a day to reflect and create, and see how it all ties together. See you in the store.
