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.


Packing for Shipping

February 7th, 2017 by

Shipments arrive safely when properly packed.

Domestic US shipping involves more than choosing the right carrier – UPS, FedEx, USPS, or freight. Packing for shipping requirements vary and are based on the following factors:

  • Size – length plus girth over 166 inches
  • Weight – total weight over 150 pounds
  • Fragility – antiques, electronics, artwork, glass
  • Orientation – item must remain in upright position
  • Value – high-value items require additional packaging

Pictures speak a thousand words.

  • The keyboard needed to remain upright throughout its journey.
  • The blanket-wrap freight carrier required a crate for the large, fragile glass table top. The table and chairs will be wrapped in blankets for transportation.
  • The small parquet table was wrapped in protective blankets and secured with Styrofoam. It shipped as a small package with FedEx Home.
  • The USAFA graduate‘s trunk and totes weighed 235 pounds and shipped as freight on a pallet.

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!
