2016 Holiday Shipping Deadlines

With Thanksgiving having come and gone, the holiday shipping season is officially upon us. This can certainly be a stressful time of year making sure gifts for out-of-state friends and family make it on time. If you’re planning on shipping gifts this year, stay ahead of the game by knowing the particular deadlines for each carrier so that your gifts arrive in time for Christmas.


Knowing the shipping deadlines is important but here are some other tips to help you breeze through the holiday gift giving season.

1. Get It Done Early: This will save you time, money and headaches. The longer you wait, the longer the lines are going to get. Moreover, the closer you get to Christmas, the more you will have to pay for expedited shipping.

2. Trust the Experts: If you’re planning to send gifts that are fragile, large, awkward or valuable, it’s best to leave the packaging to the experts. Pak Mail has over 30 years of experience packaging items of all size and fragility. Don’t let poor packaging techniques ruin the perfect gift.

3. Protect Against Theft: To avoid having packages stolen from the front steps, add Signature Confirmation to your shipment or have it shipped to a place of business.

Lastly, contact or visit your local Pak Mail for any other shipping needs you may have this year. Whether it’s specialty packaging, international or expedited shipping, the experts at Pak Mail can ensure your packages arrive on time and intact for a joy-filled holiday.
