Ship Important Items: We Pack It Up, You Pick It Up

Life is full of big moments, and big questions:

  • You’re flying from one city to another for an event. Is there a secure way to bring along your valuable product samples without lugging them through the airport and paying a fortune in baggage fees?

  • You need to deliver a big presentation. What’s the best way to make sure the manuals, electronics and heavy sound equipment arrive intact and on time?

  • Your parents are downsizing. What’s the best way to ship priceless family heirlooms?

  • You had a shopping splurge while on vacation. What’s the best low-stress way to ship paintings and fragile objects?

  • You’re in the middle of a wedding-planning whirlwind. How can you make sure all the separate pieces come together from across the country?

By combining pack-and ship-services with Hold at FedEx Location, your toughest shipping-related questions become no-brainers.
