Have something with an awkward shape?  Something really big?  Something so fragile and/or valuable that it needs extra protection for shipping?

Come to Pak Mail Anderson Mill.  The professional boxers here can handle any of your packaging requirements.  In fact, we’re so good that one of our competitors (who shall remain unnamed) actually had us make two custom boxes for them in the last two weeks!

We think that’s the best compliment and recommendation we could get.  When the competition turns to us for custom packaging, you know we get it right!

So stop by today and bring us your awkward, ugly freight.  We’ll get it to it’s destination in great shape!

Fragile Shipping

March 3rd, 2016 by

Fragile Freight

Anyone can put a sweater in a box and send it off to grandma for a birthday present.  But when it comes to fragile and/or high value items, you need to turn to the pros at Pak Mail Anderson Mill.

According to a StellaService study, one in ten ecommerce packages arrive damaged.  Many studies peg damage rates overall at 5-7%.  If you’re a large manufacturer, you can take those loss rates into account in your pricing.  But if you are a small company or an individual that can add up to a lot of risk.

Fortunately, we have a solution!  While “stuff happens” and sometimes there are circumstances you just can’t prevent or control (for example, we recently had a damage claim because the FedEx truck our package was on was in an accident), the experts at Pak Mail Anderson Mill boast a claims rate of significantly less than 1% of all shipments.  In fact, Pak Mail franchisees across the country are acknowledged in our industry as being the best at packing thanks to our extensive training the care we take in all we do.

Bubble wrap, peanuts, double boxing, Styrofoam lining, crating – we know how and when to use every method of packing to ensure your treasures get to their destination in good shape.  Click here to see examples of items we’ve packed and shipped over the years.

So – why trust anyone else when you can have the best?  Stop by today and let us take care of your packing and shipping needs.

Beware Of “Porch Pirates”

December 12th, 2015 by

Don’t let this happen to you!

Package Theft

 

 

 

 

 

This is the time of year when gifts are flowing through the shipping systems and onto your porch.  With people sending gifts to farflung family members and ordering online for themselves there is a significant increase in packages being shipped.  And a concurrent increase in thefts.

Read about it here.

Keep your treasures safe.  Consider renting a mailbox from a store like Pak Mail Anderson Mill.  We will sign for your packages and keep them safe until you arrive to pick them up.  Another alternative, if your employer allows, is to ship to your workplace.  That way the packages aren’t on your porch.  And check with the people you’re sending to.  If we can ship your gifts to their workplace, you even save money as the carriers charge less for commercial deliveries than residential ones.

If none of these options work, considering shipping with a signature required.  There is a fee for this and if the recipient isn’t home they’ll have to arrange delivery, but it’s well worth it over the alternative, especially for expensive packages.

Stop by Pak Mail Anderson Mill and we’ll help you decide the best course of action!
