Has this ever happened to you? Let’s say you have some items you need to ship across the country to a family member: a framed photo, a set of fragile kitchenware, and a small vintage alarm clock. All the items a decent amount of value, sentimentality, and fragility to them. Because of this, you know that you’d rather not try to find boxes and pack them yourselves in fear of breaking the items during transit.
So, you load the items into the car and drive down to your local pack and ship store. You walk in and are greeted by a salesclerk. You let them know you need to ship these three valuable items from Phoenix to Columbus. He tells you that they can pack and ship the items for you. Great, just what you needed. However, they get to the price and there is only two prices, one for ground shipping and one for air.
You then ask if there are any other options, to which the answer is “no”. The prices and/or timeline for delivery don’t meet your set of circumstances.
