If you are shipping gifts or other items to family, friends, or customers, it can be helpful to have various options at your disposal. If you go directly to the post office or a franchise shipping store, you only have their shipping option to choose from. By going to an independent shipping store, you have the choice to ship your package using DHL, UPS, FedEx, or USPS. In addition, they can help you with packing your items so you can have peace of mind that they’ll arrive safely.
An independent shipping store has all the shipping materials needed, including the box, packing materials, tape, and shipping labels. They can also make certain the address you are shipping to is valid and typically offer insurance so you can protect valuable shipments from loss or damage. Independent shipping stores can offer multiple options to get your package delivered in the timeframe you need and in the most cost-effective way.
An independent shipping store that handles USPS will also have postage stamps so you can conveniently pick up what you need in one trip. Many people also find that having a private mailbox at a shipping store is beneficial and preferable to a PO Box. Private mailboxes give you a more secure place to get your mail and packages (including UPS and FedEx packages), so you don’t have to worry about them sitting in an unsecured mailbox or on your front porch where they could be stolen.
