Seconded for Pak Mail. The local one here will even receive LTL
palletized shipments, store them, and then help load them into my truck.
I've got no quarrel with their freight service pricing--because they
have contracts with shippers, their price with packing is often lower
than the do-it-yourself LTL freight price alone.
I'll add, however, that Pak Mail is a franchise operation, with each
store being run by the franchisee. So the one on the north side of town
handles smaller shipments only, while the one downtown offers full
freight handling and warehousing services. Apparently, they cater to
the Amazon sellers as well.
