Consumer Tip: Pak Mail Recycles Packing Materials

March 4th, 2018 by

Clean Styrofoam, peanuts, bubble wrap, packing paper

Pak Mail accepts and recycles clean packing materials — white Styrofoam, both molded and flat sheets, not food containers; packing peanuts; bubble wrap; and packing paper. Please separate by type of material and remove all packing tape.

We combine these recycled materials with new protective packaging products and corrugated boxes in our packing of fragile items for shipping.

Thanks!

Custom-made Boxes and Crates

February 24th, 2018 by

Pak Mail builds custom corrugated boxes & wood crates

Mailbox customer looks at the large corrugated box being prepared for a grandfather clock and says, “Now that’s a big box!”

Another private mailbox renter comments on a very large (80″ tall) wood crate, “I don’t think that’s big enough!”

Our regular customers enjoy seeing our shipping challenges and express disappointment when the front lobby is empty. Luckily, that’s a rare occurrence. This week was a mix of Goodwill auction, estate (the clock), basketball tournament, USAFA, online returns, small business, and gift shipping. Some items ship as small packages with UPS, FedEx, DHL, and USPS; some require a pallet and ship with LTL freight carriers.

We never know what will come through the front door next! It keeps our regulars entertained.
