Since my son is leaving for college this week, my wife and I decided to send a bunch of his clothes and dorm room items ahead to wait on him. He and his mother are driving his new car (gift from a VERY generous friend of his grandma's!) but there's not enough room to take the stuff he needs. UPS delivered the first three boxes (30 lbs+ each) this week from Va Beach to Nashville in just under two days, ground, for about 8.50 a box. We established an account on the UPS website with a cc, and printed the labels right off the inkjet. We have a pak-n-ship about a block away, so dropping the boxes off was no problem. Tracking online is a breeze. Now the only thing he has to take in the car is his computer and the clothes he kept out for this week. Everything else is already waiting on him at the college mail room.
