quote:- open an online account with FedEx, UPS, or both. Print your shipping labels from home, prepaid on your credit card. This way you never need to declare what is in the package, and you don't have to answer to anybody when dropping off your package - just leave it with them and split.
Agree. My business gets daily pick ups from UPS and has for 6 years. We ship and recieve text books and other large box items. A case of wine never has a problem looking like another box of books and we don't declare anything.
Mike's tips above are excellent. Especially marking boxes "fragile" and stuff like that. No need to write that, if properly packed.
