Highly Valuable Art Shipment

May 3rd, 2018 by

Here’s a highly valuable art shipment we sent up north recently. If you look closely, you can see this nautical theme has a Michigan map in the background. The artist painted this work directly onto Rand McNally topography, native to the area in which these watercraft activities are commonplace. It’s quite an amazing concept!

Pak Mail Ships Abstract Art

April 10th, 2018 by

A local artist came by a couple weeks ago to send this original work to a family member. This is an abstract rendition of a specific insect, which was appropriate for the recipient’s profession. We secured this piece in glassine to assure the paint was protected, and that was covered with bubble wrap and placed into a picture shipping box. Fed Ex Ground finished things off without complication.

Pak Mail Carries Packing & Shipping Supplies

March 21st, 2018 by

There’s a reason we carry shipping grade boxes, often which have marginal cost difference between what can be found at big box stores. Simply put, the competitors boxes cannot be used without additional risk, and they’re designed for storing/moving, not shipping. Our boxes are made of high quality cardboard that’s designed to withstand 20+ miles of conveyor belts, large mechanical sorting arms, and even carriers that may not necessarily be handling that “fragile” package with care. Next time you’re choosing to send items from A to B, let us help you assure they arrive safely and in tact.

We Even Ship Signs

February 19th, 2018 by

Pak Mail Cascade assisted with making certain a new client (Boost Mobile) received these building signs in Indianapolis. We presented the option of custom crating them, or utilizing honeycomb separators and high density foam on a strapped pallet. The latter was selected, and it proved to be more than enough to assure safe transit. Pak Mail is proud of it’s ability to ship those large and awkward items others can’t or won’t.

We Ship Sports Collectibles

February 12th, 2018 by

Local collector had these items for many years and recently decided to part with them. The helmet pictured on the left is signed by Brett Favre as the league MVP, and the right is Reggie White for the HOF induction. Needless to say, it was a privilege being part of this story, as we assisted in very carefully transporting these collectibles to their new home on the west coast. These will be installed into a glass case already built to specifically accommodate them.

Senior Transitions & Downsizing

February 7th, 2018 by

We can orchestrate an entire move into a retirement home. It can be challenging to plan Mom or Dad transitioning from a residential home to a smaller retirement facility room. For instance, how do you decide what to take versus leave behind? What do you honestly consider the essentials versus the expendables? If certain items don’t make the move, how do you manage anything left behind? These are just a few of the most common questions we receive, and we can help answer these and more for you. Every move is unique so your circumstances may be completely different, which is why we take the time to listen to your specific needs and customize options that will work for you. Whether your desires consist of proper placement, disposal, or donation of your loved ones’ valuables, we can seamlessly make it happen. Leave the small details to us and take confidence knowing the process will be handled professionally and efficiently. Our breadth of experience and long-term partnerships with local organizers/designers should afford you the opportunity to focus on other matters instead of emotions often associated with this move.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and your loved ones, so please contact us and let’s begin planning your move today!


Fragile Lamps Safely Packed & Shipped

December 6th, 2017 by

Pak Mail Cascade recently shipped these luxury lamps which were an online purchase from a furniture store in East Hills, MI. We had the pleasure of helping them make it safely to their new owner in the Northern Plains. To make the trip, each lamp was double boxed, which consisted of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, glassine paper to protect the leather finish, and cardboard edge protectors to reinforce the structural integrity.

Artwork Packed & Shipped

November 17th, 2017 by

A local resident recently contacted us to ship some art down south. Our “picture pack” process was used once before with this customer, and they were very impressed with the way it protected their valuables. This consists of custom boxes, bubble wrap, shrink wrap, tape, and corrugated liner. Their second shipment arrived without any complication, too.

Hard to ship furniture? We got it covered!

October 31st, 2017 by

Pak Mail Cascade recently had an out of town customer contact us about some furniture they were looking to purchase from a local consignment shop in Grand Rapids. The sheer weight/volume/size of this set would not allow it to be shipped common carrier, so we completed the job with specialty freight. Following careful packaging that included double corrugated cardboard, strapping tape, honeycomb, commercial shrink wrap, nylon pallet strapping, and wooden bracing, the only thing that remained was the trip itself. We’ve received word the furniture arrived without complication and the family is enjoying their new investment! Pak Mail can ship furniture, appliances, and other large and awkward items that other shipping stores can’t.

Customer Testimonial

October 18th, 2017 by

Pak Mail Cascade recently received this wonderful testimonial from a customer.

“I had the honor of having an iPhone image of mine shown at ArtPrize 9 this last September and October (2017). I live in Minneapolis, MN and needed to have my finished piece installed at the venue where it would hang during ArtPrize and de-installed after ArtPrize was done. I was lucky enough to find in the ArtPrize literature a brief mention that PakMail had done this type of service in the past. I contacted the owner of Cascade PakMail and he had Calvin Webb (Operations Manager of the store) contact me. It was my responsibility to get my entry to the venue for installation and de-installation, but how to do that from so far away was my dilemma. To my amazement I was told that I could have my work sent to the store where they would hold it until the installation date and take it to the venue and even hang it for me! And even more outstanding was that they would go and pick it up from the venue and ship it back. I don’t know if you can imagine the burden that was lifted from my shoulders. Everything went totally according to the plan that Calvin and I had discussed. I wish all my dealings with companies was handled with such professional service. I was notified when the package arrived, when it was delivered to the venue, when it was picked up from the venue and when it was shipped back to me in Minneapolis. I can not say enough positive things about my experience. The price was very reasonable for the service that they provided and made my participation in ArtPrize 9 possible. I can not thank them enough. If I could I would give 10 stars. Bravo PakMail Cascade you are an ArtPrize winner in my book.”
