Get Your Package Ready

  • Seal your box with plastic or nylon tape at least two inches wide. Don’t use duct tape.
  • Wrap items separately and use cushioning material. Get packaging tips.
  • Keep in mind, there are additional rules for special-care and prohibited items.
  • You’ll need to know the dimensions and weight of your box.

Get a Label

  • See how much it will cost.
