Caruso Holiday Pack & Ship Tips

  1. Ship early! Avoid procrastinating to avoid longer lines, plus planning early allows more shipping options.
  2. Consult experts first. Check with the UPS Store experts before shipping fragile items.
  3. Use materials the professionals use. Use a new cardboard box designed for shipping, professional-grate packaging tape and bubble wrap for cushioning (suggested two inches around) to protect gifts.
  4. Print an extra shipping label. Choose a shipping option that provide a tracking number.
  5. Take batteries out. Remove batteries from toys and electronics before shipping and wrap them separately to avoid contact with metal.
  6. Sending sweets? Seal homemade holiday treats in an interior airtight container or plastic bag before packing and sending them via expedited air service.
  7. Ship wrapped presents in advance. Lighten your holiday travel load, especially if you’re traveling by air, by shipping gifts ahead to your destination.
  8. Save on shipping boxes and other supplies. You can save on shipping supplies and services at many retail shipping store locations simply by showing your AAA membership!
