While we strive to be accommodating as possible, we unable to prepare shipments using using a personal or organization's account.

No one knows your associates, friends or family's information better than YOU! Be sure you have the correct info before shipping.
GP Boone has many checks in our POS system and we always try to verify addresses, but shipments go smoother if we start with the correct info. If you are unsure about anything- check with us before we create the label. We are happy to help.
1) Be sure you have correct info!
The GPB Team always tries to get you taken care of and out the door as quickly as possible-Even more since COVID descended on us. But remember-Shipping a package has a long list of things that have to be done correctly to be sure your package gets delivered properly. GP Boone has OPTIONS for our customers. Shipping is not one-size-fits-all here! We have 3 carriers and multiple options in those carriers. Leave time so that we can help you pick the BEST shipping option for each shipment.
2) Leave enough time to ship.
There are many common items that are considered Dangerous Goods that have to be shipped through a Hazardous Shipping facility. The tricky thing is that sometimes one carrier may allow an item and another carrier may not. For example: UPS does not allow gun shipments. Fedex does-provided several rules are followed. --Thank goodness GPB has a handbook with lots of info about what is OK and what is not OK to ship via each carrier and 15+ years of experience. If you are worried about something you need to ship, email or call us before you come by. That way we can research your question and get back to you.
3) There are things we CAN'T ship.
GPB offers shipping insurance as an add on service, but there are rules to follow or your claim may be denied. We are required to photograph and verify what you say is in the box- really is. GPB is careful to follow the proper steps to be sure your insurance claim will be valid, should we need to file one for you. Ask for a Shipping Insurance Info card next time you are at GPB. It has lots of great info. GPB has special stickers for the insured shipments explaining what to do when a damaged package is received. This way the person you are shipping to knows what steps to follow also.
4) Insurance claims REQUIRE proof of worth and pictures of packing.
Once your packages are picked up by the shipping carriers, there are limits to what we can change or control. Sometimes we are able to make changes to the labels through the carriers once a package has left our store, but these may come with additional fees. When we create labels for you at GPB, we use our experience and knowledge to help you make the best choice for carrier and service- though it is ultimately your choice. If you experience difficulty with a package-GPB is here to help navigate the complexities of each carrier and file claims when possible.
6) GPB takes care of you packages until the carriers pick them up..
Currently we have to check with carriers to be sure they are delivering to the other country you are shipping to before we can create the labels. Allow extra time for the new procedures and checks to be taken care of for international shipments. The shipping customer will also have to answer questions about the shipment so GPB can fill out the forms properly and sign each copy required. We don't want you to waste money on a shipment that will just be returned by customs due to incorrect information.
5) International Shipments are more difficult than ever!
Shipment too big for regular shipping? No worries, GPB can help you with Freight Shipping. Freight shipments are calculated by dimension, weight, packing materials required, and destination along with several other specifics .
Need a quote? Just fill out our Freight form and we will send you one.
Please be advised that freight quotes take 2-3 business days. So leave time for quoting and processing before the actual shipping time.
Go Postal in Boone takes pride in maintaining a safe and healthy environment during these uncertain times. As we are not a hazardous goods facility for any carrier, we are not allowed to accept any packages that contain dangerous goods.
If your package is left at our location the carriers will not pick them up, so they will be discarded.
