Joel Altsman and Pak Mail Anderson Mill win the coveted MVP award.

Joel Altsman and Pak Mail Anderson Mill win the coveted MVP award.

We had our Pak Mail Convention last week in Atlanta.  It was a great time of meeting new people, reconnecting with old friends, absorbing fantastic content, and interacting with important vendors.

Each Convention has a time of handing out awards.  I was totally blown away with an award I won.  It’s the Pak Mail’s MVP award.  The big deal is that it’s sanctioned by the International Franchise Association (IFA) as their Distinguished Achievement Award “in recognition of outstanding individual performance and for contributions that have enhanced franchising’s distinguished place in a free economy.”

As one of franchising’s highest awards, it’s also known as the “Frannie” and can only be won once.  What an honor it was to be recognized for our commitment to providing the best customer experience in the packing and shipping business.

Here’s a picture of me (center) receiving the award from Pak Mail CEO Alex Zai and COO Angela Gomez:

How NOT To Ship

February 13th, 2014 by

Here are some funny photos of how not to ship.  Of course, if you bring your items to us, we’ll do it right!

Why Choice Is Important

January 10th, 2014 by

By now you’ve all heard the horror stories about Christmas delivery delays.  The biggest culprit, by far, in this mess was UPS.  It’s been all over the national news and the internet.

Unlike many of our competitors, we offer a plethora of carriers to move our packages.  Because we constantly monitor carrier performance, we were able to see the UPS debacle looming before it hit and we severely limited our use of that carrier during the holidays.  Bacause of our proactive stance, we are proud to report only one instance of a late package – and that one was the postal service, over whom we have no control and never make any promises about delivery time.

So, the next time you need to ship something – across town or across the planet – stop by and see the pros at Pak Mail Anderson Mill.  We’ll be sure to take good care of you.  At Pak Mail, you’ve got choices!

This is why you should let us pack

January 3rd, 2014 by

The picture below is of a package we received that was sent to one of our mailbox customers.  There was obviously not enough fill material to ensure the integrity of the box.  Hopefully, the contents weren’t damaged, but we’ll have to wait until he picks it up to find out.photo

When you let the “professional boxers” at Pak Mail do your packing for you, this simply doesn’t happen!

Happy Veteran’s Day!

November 11th, 2013 by

On this day, we honor our military and thank them for the sacrifices and commitments they have made to protect our freedoms.

Here at Pak Mail Anderson Mill we’d like to say thank you as well.  If you’re an active duty member of the military or a vet, just stop by today, show us your military ID, and your UPS, FedEx, LSO, and DHL shipping is 15% OFF!

CFSAnd don’t forget – our deployed military has to pay for phone calls home.  We have partnered with Cell Phones for Soldiers to help alleviate this burden.  Bring us your old cell phones and we’ll get them to this wonderful organization.  They use the proceeds from recycling the phones to provide free 60 minute phone cards to our deployed military.  We include one in every APO/FPO package we ship out.

Door To Door Delivery

Gotta love the post office!  This video brings the idea of door to door delivery to a new high (or low, depending on your perspective)!

Why USPS is not a business

Here’s an interesting blog post about the post office and the cause of some of its woes.  Take a read HERE.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this as well!

Pak Mail Partners With Cell Phones For Soldiers

September 12th, 2013 by

CFSPAK MAIL ANDERSON MILL HAS PARTNERED WITH

CELL PHONES FOR SOLDIERS

TO PROVIDE TROOPS WITH FREE CALLS HOME

Pak Mail Anderson Mill and nonprofit Cell Phones for Soldiers Inc. are asking Austin residents to help troops call home by donating gently-used cellular phones. Although the military landscape is ever changing, as many as 290,000 troops are serving in the U.S. military overseas around the world. By donating to Cell Phones for Soldiers, Austin residents can provide troops with that precious connection to loved ones back home.

Austinites can donate their phones at Pak Mail Anderson Mill at:

13359 N. Highway 183

Suite 406

Austin, TX 78750

Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded in 2004 by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist at the ages of 12 and 13. The charity has since provided 181 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and women stationed around the world. Funds raised from the recycling of cellular phones are used to purchase prepaid international calling cards. On average, Cell Phones for Soldiers distributes 12,000 calling cards each week to bases around the world, care package programs, deployment ceremonies and VA hospitals.

“Each year we have been humbled by the amount of people and organizations like Pak Mail that take the initiative to support our troops,” said co-founder Brittany Bergquist. “The communication gap between those serving and their families is a crucial need that Cell Phones for Soldiers is committed to addressing for years to come.”

Donated phones are sent to Mindful eCycling for recycling. For every donated phone valued at $5, Cell Phones for Soldiers is able to provide two and a half hours of free talk time to deployed troops.

Approximately half of the phones Mindful eCycling processes are reconditioned and reused. Phones and components that cannot be refurbished are dismantled and responsibly recycled to reclaim materials, including:

  • Gold, silver and platinum from circuit boards
  • Copper wiring from phone chargers
  • Nickel, iron, cadmium and lead from battery packs
  • Plastic from phone cases and accessories
