When shipping items, is it better to do it yourself or use a pack-and-ship store? Everything from the proper size cardboard box to the weight of the packing materials can make a big difference in keeping costs down and fuel usage as low as possible. Oversized boxes, heavy paper filler and other items can dramatically increase overall shipping costs and add to the amount of fuel used by planes and trucks to transport your goods. If you have items at home you can reuse to pack it light and tight, do it! If not, let the pros handle it for you.
