“My husband calls himself a treasure hunter. He goes to all the auctions and estate sales and whatnot, buying whatever he can get. And then he brings it back here for me to sell.” Rhonda M. shook her head and smiled. “What does he bring me this time? A residential air conditioning system – never installed. Thankfully, we found a buyer online. But have you ever tried to ship an air conditioner?”

“Even when your buyer pays all the shipping costs, you want to keep the expense as low as possible,” Rhonda explained. “There are buyers who’ll balk if the shipping is too high. Sometimes that means you have to send your shipment in several boxes or crates rather than one; sometimes it means using a freight shipping service. Most buyers want things quickly, too. It can be a challenge to figure out the fastest way to ship a heavy item for the most affordable price. That’s when I depend on my Eastern MA shipping store.”
The air conditioners were delivered safely and on time, much to Rhonda’s customer’s delight. “That’s one challenge handled,” she said with a smile. “Now I just have to see what he comes home with next!”
