How Much is Your Time Worth?

How much is your time worth?

We've had a couple folks come in in the past week and tell us they had to run all over town or wait in long lines to get their documents notarized or their things shipped before coming to visit us. Most of our customers are able to come in to take care of their needs and leave in just a minute or two, which frees up and gives them back their most valuable commodity - their time. Fast efficient service, often times for less $. How much is your time worth?

Post Office Sticker Shock

Yesterday on June 23, the Post Office implemented their new dimensional weight pricing and lowered their volumetric divisor from 194 to 166. What does this mean? It means that now the Post Office will start charging more based on box size and not just by weight. In some cases, shipping via USPS will increase by up to 500%! How can you avoid this price increase? As before, the absolute cheapest way to ship small heavy things would be the Post Office flat rate boxes at the Post Office (though you will probably pay for it in time) The other way to avoid this price increase is to come visit us in downtown Redmond. We had a customer today who went to the Post Office first and got a quote for $62 and change for basic Parcel Post service. She came here and we charged her a bit over $38 for a better faster option that came with real tracking and insurance ***for the exact same package*** because we were able to sort through all of her options at once and choose the one that best fit her needs. Pay us a visit and see for yourself!
