Happenings - December
Shipping is as easy as 1-2-3 at the
59 S Main Suite #3 Moab UT 84532
that hustle-bustle time of the year full of last minute shopping,
wrapping, and shipping gifts to loved ones all over the country.
Dont despair if you feel like you dont have enough
time to get it all done. There is help in Moab, at least for
the shipping part of your Christmas to-do list.
Moab Mailing Center is standing by ready to help you package
and ship your gifts to everyone you love. Whether youre
sending a giant panda bear to a grandchild or a microwave to
your parents, Theresa King, owner of the Mailing Center, will
take good care of your package.
The real master packager here is Rex Holman, Theresa
explains. He can package anything!
Indeed, Rex has had some practice at packing and shipping some
pretty unusual items including a full-sized grandfather clock,
cow skulls, antlers, and even deer meat. One of the most unusual
and frequently shipped items is, believe it or
The tumbleweed is a real challenge, says Rex. Of
course, they want their tumbleweed to arrive back east with
not a single twig out of place. It requires very gentle handling
.more like shipping Waterford crystal than
Rex is up to the challenge, however, and secretly enjoys custom
building boxes and handling delicate or awkward shipping requirements.
The Mailing Center ships UPS and FedEx. They offer over 50 different
sizes of boxes, so youre bound to find just the right
box for your shipping needs. And youll always get fast,
friendly service at the Mailing Center whether youre just
popping in to buy a box to ship on your own, or asking Rex to
package and ship a bicycle to Biloxi! The center carries a full
line of shipping supplies including boxes, envelopes, bubble
wrap and tape, so even if youre doing your own packaging,
you can accomplish one stop shopping there.
Rex and Theresa warn that the busiest time of the season is
December 1 through December 15th, so if you have Christmas packages
to ship, come early. They suggest you allow a week for regular,
ground delivery, depending on where its going in the U.S.
Of course, you can wait until the last minute if you have
to. Both UPS and FedEx offer guaranteed overnight service, but,
of course, you pay for that guarantee, says Theresa.
In addition to packaging and shipping, the Mailing Center provides
post office boxes so people can receive UPS and FedEx packages.
It also allows folks to obtain a Main Street mailing address.
Their mail service includes forwarding mail if youre going
to be out of time for an extended period. The center also handles
bulk mailing and sells stamps.
Theresa started the Moab Mailing Center in 1997 and incorporated
it into her already thriving businesses, Canyonlands Advertising
and Canyonlands Copy Center.
We were already doing some of the work, so it was a natural
extension of our services to the community, explains Theresa.
At about the same time there was a shortage of boxes at
the post office, so we just kind of extended the number of boxes
available in the community. We work closely with the post office
and have a great relationship with them.
The Moab Mailing Center is open Monday through Friday 8 to 6
and every Saturday from 9 to 5. With the Christmas season right
around the corner, now is a good time to give yourself a break
and use some of the hassle-free services available at the Moab
Mailing Center. And year round, its a place of good cheer!
