With the holiday season fast approaching, The Postal Depot must set out guidelines for our packing/shipping customers to help maintain safe social distancing and reduce and hopefully eliminate wait times for these services.

YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AT LEAST 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE TO COME INTO THE POSTAL DEPOT FOR OUR ASSISTANCE TO PACK AND SHIP YOUR ITEMS.

1. In the Subject line, write “Request for Packing/Shipping Service
2. In the body of your email, please explain the following:
a. How many separate shipments will you have?
b. What is in each shipment (is it fragile, liquid, perishable, potentially hazardous such as lithium batteries, perfume, or mercury? Do you have anything unusual, big, priceless?)
c. What day would you like to come in for help with your packing and shipping?
