“We have three kids, a dog, five bikes and a summer home in Vermont,” Madalyn said. “Our mini-van is large enough to carry what we need most of the time, but when it comes to getting away for a week or two at a time? There’s no way to fit everything in there comfortably.” After a few years of trying to cram every available inch of space with bedding, pillows, cookware and more, Madalyn got sick of it. “There’s a much easier way to handle all of this. I just went to Boston Pack and Ship, our South Shore shipping store, and had them box it all up and send it to Vermont. When we got there, all our stuff was waiting for us.”
“When I first told my husband that we were shipping, rather than packing, our summer gear, he thought I was nuts. He was worried it was going to be very expensive. But the team at Boston Pack and Ship helped me get everything sent out on our budget – and the difference in the drive from the South Shore to Vermont when we’re not jammed in the van like a bunch of sardines? Totally worth it.” Without the extra gear in the mini-van, Madalyn’s older daughter could sit in the last row of seats, rather than being squished in three across for the many-hours drive. “When you ask how much I’d be willing to pay to not have her complaining that whole time? A lot more than I paid for shipping, that’s for sure!”
