UPS Store Suggestions For The Holidays

If you are mailing packages UPS for the holidays, here are some tips.

1. Do not wrap your package in brown paper--sure Grandma did in the olden days, but with high speed belts, the paper can be torn off the package and there goes the label.

2. Use a sturdy box. The box that the product your sending, most likely came on a pallet on a freight carrier. Box your package in a way that it can take bumps and bruises or better yet--have someone at the UPS Store pack it. They have been trained to pack fragile items and the price is a great value considering time and materials used.

3. No guarantees on "Ground Shipping" . It's always better to pay a little more to have it arrive on time.

4. Have your items organized according to how you want them packed.
