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!

Chris

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.
