Jackson Pack N Ship makes getting your kid to college is easy. Sending your child back to college can be an emotional hurdle, but it shouldn’t be a hassle.
Trying to get everything together for dorm life is a challenge. Inevitably, we miss something that will be needed. Pack well ahead of time and will get most of the items into boxes and ready to go. It gives a window of time to make a mental checklist and figure out what is missing.
Shipping in boxes is a lot easier and faster and more reliable than having them jammed into the back of a friend’s car. So the first tip is to contact Jackson Pack N Ship and have your boxes shipped back to school.
In addition to the tip about shipping your college stuff to school, here’s a short list of the top 10 things that may be helpful in the dorm, and which are frequently forgotten:
The holidays can be challenging for grandparents who won’t be sitting by the tree when kids open their presents. If you can’t be there, you can still make sure the kids feel your presence. When selecting gifts, focus on the personal and meaningful; steer away from the latest toys that they will use and set aside before you see them again. The following suggestions can help you start new traditions and create lasting memories for your grandchildren.
Texts. IMs. Facebook. Twitter. Email. Our computers offer us a multitude of ways to communicate with our grandchildren. But while instant communication is convenient, and can be great fun, many kids — especially younger ones — still get a thrill when the mailman delivers something special for them. Unlike email or texts, “snail mail” gives kids a tangible reminder of you that they can hold in their hand, enjoy over and over again, and even take to school for show-and-tell. That beats a tweet every day of the week.
1. Start an annual tradition of sending each grandchild an Easter Basket, Halloween candy, Valentine Day heart, and a specially chosen ornament for the family Christmas tree. You might try to get ‘I thought of you’ gifts while you’re on vacation – the proverbial t-shirt and souvenir.
2. If you can’t see the kids in December, send them something special they can enjoy with you when you do get together. Add to their excitement about an upcoming spring or summer adventure by sending a package with everything they’ll need. A backyard camping kit might include a tent, sleeping bag, canteen, and flashlight; a beach package could combine sand toys, a beach towel, a child-size chair, and cool sunglasses.
3. Many older kids seem to have everything they need, and it’s tough to keep up with their tastes in music or fashion, so send them something money can’t (entirely) buy — the promise of an all-day, one-on-one experience with you. Surprise your grandchild with two tickets to a basketball game or Broadway-style show, as well as gift certificates to their favorite restaurant and arcade. To build their anticipation, include a small souvenir like a team cap or shirt, or the soundtrack to the musical you’ll see. Even the most jaded teens will appreciate the special time you’ll spend together.
4. Art supplies are a perennial favorite for kids of all ages, but grandparents don’t always get the opportunity to see the enchanting works their favorite young artists create. To solve this problem, include several oversize, self-decorated, self-addressed, stamped envelopes with your art-supply packages. Write your grandchildren a note, with your own artwork in the margins, encouraging them to create some new pieces for your home and to send those drawings or paintings to you.

Got a Buffet Table, Chair, Dresser, or Desk that you want from here to there? We are ideal for pieces that are too small for a moving company – too large for a UPS or FedEx Ground service but it’s just right for us! Folks who sell furniture love us. Families who have generational furniture to pass along love us a lot.
How does it work? After careful consideration, the packaging required to provide safe delivery is determined. The item is palletized firmly and securely, (see also Cargo page) ready to board a semi-truck. Palletizing has a unique feature that adds safety to anything shipped . . . the item stays in the upright position the entire trip. Pallets are loaded onto the truck to make their way to final designation. When the shipment arrives to the terminal near the delivery point, the recipient is given a call to arrange for delivery. The truck arrives, backs into the driveway and unloads the pallet. Drivers are usually kind to move the shipment into a garage before leaving. The recipient waves good bye and unpacks the very cool furniture.
Running a pack and ship business is a lot like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.
A life size antique wood hand-carved Indian made its way inside Jackson Pack N Ship. As a rare piece, his presence was needed at the Spiritual Journey Tribal Gallery in Stanton CA. Hitch-hiking was out of the question so he made his way to our store for packing and shipping, a lot less hassle for him.
During his short stay in the store, he endured a lot of looks and stares. He was anatomically correct so an appropriate looking scarf was used around his waist giving him an authentic Tarzan look. Although he didn’t say much, he was angry looking – very angry. In his hand is the head of the last person that crossed his path. He seems to be saying, “I can’t live without Jackson Pack N Ship!”
A couple of weeks later, he made it to California safe and sound, albeit a little stuffy for him. He was delivered strapped on a pallet securely wrapped in a well cushioned box. May be there are other wood-carvings in the gallery on exhibit to keep him company there.
Enjoy convenience and avoid hassles when you ship your luggage ahead at Jackson Pack N Ship! Whether heading to the slopes or to a conference, it’s easier to send your gear ahead — and also to ship it home.
Business Travelers: From presentations to signage and more, have everything waiting for you upon your arrival so you can focus on your business.
Vacation Travelers: Start your vacation off on the right note when you ship your luggage it is already waiting for you when you reach your destination. Let us pack and ship your skis, golf clubs, strollers and more.
You can generally expect shipping ahead to be more secure and you’re far less likely to have your bag “mishandled” (that’s the fun word the Department of Transportation uses) by your airline or the TSA.
Just so you are informed: In most cases, shipping your luggage is a little more expensive than checking it with your airline. When comparing the value of the benefits, most travelers choose to pay for shipping if it means a more pleasant trip.

At Jackson Pack N Ship, you can have the advantage of using your personal golf clubs wherever you play. We make it easy for your clubs to meet you anywhere you’re going including hotels, vacation homes and even the golf course. Just bring in your clubs, the entire set if you wish. Our trained staff at JPNS professionally packs clubs and accessories.
Right sized box. Other golf club packaging services only offer the larger 15x15x48 box that cost much more to ship. An average sized golf club bag with a set of clubs usually fits in a 10x10x48 sized box – a box that Jackson Pack N Ship carries in stock always. You can easily save $40 by using the right sized box.
Our packing technique calls for clubs to be shrink wrapped so the heads do not move and hit against each other. Any extra room in the box is filled with paper or some other type of cushioning – we avoid using styro-foam peanuts for packing golf clubs – they can be messy when unpacking and re-packing.
Plan for easy return shipping by taking a return label with you or packed inside the golf club box. We can include a spool of tape in the shipment for you. When departing for home, simply place the golf clubs in the same box, tape it up, place the return label over the old one and the hotel concierge should take care of the rest. Hotels easily stage your shipment with others for the driver to pick up or if you prefer, drop off your package at the nearest location on your way to the airport.
“Traveling and playing golf go hand-in-hand. Many golfers refuse to travel with their clubs because of the horror stories from disgruntled passengers. The thought of a lucky or irreplaceable clubs broken to entire sets disappearing into the vortex of unclaimed baggage can drive a golfer to stay to his local courses. So many fear airlines will misdirect their prized sets that they refuse to travel with them unless it’s by car. There are plenty of ways to ship clubs that can keep them safe and ensure they make it to the intended destination.” – taken from from Golflink.com
“I ship mine to Texas from Oregon all the time. Load up a bag with the clubs, shoes, balls and all accessories, and then ship it out. My bag with all of the above weighs in at about 50 pounds”

Have heirloom crystal or china to pass on to your grandchildren? Even when they live across the country, there is no reason to lose hope. We specialize in packaging very fragile pieces for shipping even if they are going 2000 miles away.
Jackson Pack N Ship has strict standards for packaging and shipping very fragile and valuable fine china. We require our packers to individually bubble wrap each piece before placing them in a box cushioned with packing peanuts. This box is again placed in a larger container which is intended to take the brunt of all handling, shock and vibration while in transit. We refer to this packaging technique as double boxing.
Moving companies typically use large boxes for packing dishes but we prefer to use smaller boxes for ease of handling by the shipper. Smaller boxes also result in lighter overall weight that also reduces the stress on the bottom pieces.
If there is concern about transporting your china or crystal to Jackson Pack N Ship, we can help. We are happy to pack dishes at your home and transport them to our shop for shipping. We don’t want anything to get in the way of passing on a family legacy.

Need to send art or artwork? It is not a DIY Job.
Jackson Pack N Ship has been offering our services to artists, galleries, museums and auction houses since 1997. We provide personal service to our clients including custom packaging, crating and shipping these items with special care. We know that family heirlooms and works of art are precious and deserve the most attention for the safest delivery. We spare no packing material or technique because we understand what packages endure during the shipping process.
Our packaging technique for framed or unframed art and artwork involves several steps. Any item containing glass, such as framed art and pictures, receives a layer of glass mask to protect the print, photograph or artwork that lay underneath and layer of scratch preventative called furniture wrap is applied. Furniture wrap is a combination of thick tissue paper and wrap designed to prevent abrasion and scratching. It is used primarily for fine wood and critical finish surfaces.
Next is a layer of styro-board that is sized and applied using stretch-wrap around the piece to withstand any mishandling event that might occur. The piece is surrounded with a double-walled corrugated container or a crate. We have in-stock picture boxes for the most common artwork sizes but we are prepared to build any size double-walled corrugated container or crate necessary. Lastly, the space left between the carefully wrapped artwork and container is filled using packing peanuts. Nothing should be loose when finally packed for shipment.
Our packaging is exceptional for protecting against damage. But in the unlikely event of damage or loss, Jackson Pack N Ship has value coverage available to its customers to cover the value of the artwork. A few things we ask our customers to do before shipping highly valuable pieces:
Watch below how two canvas paintings from home are packed for shipment.
Need to get a laptop, printer, or peripheral from here to there? Electronics can be scary and tricky items to pack and ship. Did you know that the courier industry has specific packaging requirements for these items? They will deny any and all claims for damage when packaging is not to standard. When you bring your equipment to us there is no need to worry. We know exactly what to do to package it properly and get it there safely.
A few things we suggest our customers do before shipping a PC or laptop:
Back up data on a removable drive or disk.
Remove ink cartridges and toner to prevent accidental spillage. Place them in a separate zip lock bag to include in the shipment.
Record make, model and serial number of the equipment.
Make sure power supplies and cables are present and accounted for functioning as appropriate.
Need to send baby shower gifts to your daughter living in Italy? Or how about sending a military serviceman a care package? Customs forms can be complicated and challenging. No package will be delivered without the form completed correctly. At Jackson Pack N Ship, we simplify the process by completing the forms for you and making international shipping as easy as mailing a letter.
Customs forms aren’t the only head-ache when shipping internationally. There are specific and varying item restrictions for sending your package overseas. Reading a list of rules and regulations can be overwhelming. If the rules are not followed, it could mean long delays in delivery.
Here are a few general but helpful pointers:
