Online Auction Boom Creates Shipping Challenges

ENGLEWOOD, CO | Monday, August 01, 2005

As a one-stop shop for purchasing almost anything you can think of, the online auction world is growing at an exceptional rate.

The auction site eBay, for ex-ample, has more than 100 million registered members from around the world. According to the on-line auction giant, it is the most popular shopping destination onthe Internet.

Why are online auctions all the rage? From collectible toy trains to custom-built furniture, you can find a variety of extra-ordinary items not found at your local mall. And for those putting their large, bulky or fragile goods up for bids, selling is easy compared to figuring out how to get the items shipped to their new owners.

Seeking solutions to these and other shipping hassles, many on-line auctioneers are turning to professional packing, crating and shipping services, such as Pak Mail Centers. They can ship anything anywhere in the world with ease.

Pak Mail Centers provide an extended menu of services. For instance, they can build custom wooden shipping crates to fit your oddly shaped, heavy or bulky items. In fact, they have been known to ship such items as church pulpits, a manhole cover and even a dinosaur egg. Pick up service is available at most locations. They can also provide estimated shipping costs for most items, which allows an online seller to know ahead of time how much to factor in for shipping before listing an item for auction.

And for the do-it-yourself shipper, Pak Mail Centers also carry a large selection of pack-aging supplies. For more information, call (800) 778-6665 or log on to
