Got something big, bulky, awkward to ship?

If you have something “unshippable” that you need to get across the state, across the country, or around the world, bring it to Pak Mail! (Or call us for free local pickup.) Nothing is “unshippable” for us. (Well, almost nothing!) We specialize in the large, odd-shaped, unusual and/or high-value items that everyone else tells you [...]
