Authorized Shipping

GPB is an authorized shipping outlet for FedEx, UPS, and the United States Postal Service.  While we strive to be as accommodating as possible, we are unable to prepare shipments using a personal or organizational account number and are currently not allowed to process QR codes for labels.   While your package is safe within GPB, once the package leaves our facility it is in the hands of your chosen shipping carrier.  We unfortunately have no control over loss or delays from carriers, weather, natural disasters, or customs. GPB strives to prepare your shipments with attention and care to ensure they have the best chance of arriving on time and undamaged.

GPB happily accepts and holds packages for you for $5.00 each.


This service is offered to anyone that needs to have a package redirected to

GP Boone for multiple reasons - recipient lives in a dorm or apartment - recipient wants their package(s) stored safely and out of the elements until they can pick them up -customer is visiting and needs a package receiver.

Be sure to email us with your contact information and when to expect the package(s). We can email you when they arrive.


GP Boone is dedicated to making sure your package arrives safely. We also offer additional insurance as added protection against unforeseen damage or loss.


Unfortunately, we are unable to offer additional blind insurance as we must photograph the items and the entire packing process to be sure your shipment meets the insurance requirements. 

Shipping Tips

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 built into our system and we verify addresses as true 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!

2) Leave enough time to ship.

The GPB Team is committed to getting your shipments taken care of as quickly as possible. 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.

3) There are things we CAN'T 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. --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 18+ years of experience. If you are worried about something you need to ship, email us before you come by. That way we can research your question before you arrive.

GPB offers additional shipping insurance, 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.

5) International Shipments are more difficult than ever!

 Allow extra time for the new procedures and checks of products allowed to your specific country for internationalshipments.  Customers will also have to answer questions about each item in the shipment and sign each copy of the customs form. We don't want your shipment returned or disposed of by customs due to incorrect or incomplete information so international shipments take longer to process.

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 decision 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 your packages until the carriers pick them up.
