Our Services

Furniture, New and Used:

If you have a whole house full of furniture, a moving company is probably your best option.  But if you have a roomful of furniture or just a few pieces, then The Mailbox & Shipping Center can offer you better prices because we have no weight minimums and select the transit option best suited for your job.   Furniture items we pack and ship most often include:

Sofas / Couches / Loveseats

Dining Room Sets

Living Room Sets

Bedroom Sets including mattresses

Grandfather Clocks

Oriental Rugs

This is just a partial list – we are happy to provide a free quote for any item, any size, any weight.

Antiques and Artwork:

Rare and fragile family heirlooms require expert and professional packaging for them to arrive safe and sound at their destination.  Even if the item doesn’t have a high value, we know it’s important to you, so it will receive the same time and attention as some of the pieces valued at $50,000+ we have packaged and shipped.    Items we specialize in are:

Paintings – framed or unframed


Antiques of all shapes, sizes and values


Fine China, Silver, Pottery and Other Fragile Pieces:

Passing along china and silver is a precious gift in many families and the careful handling of these treasures is one of our special service areas.  From two pieces to two hundred, each will be cradled and secure to ensure the receipt of the shipment will unbox only joy on the other end.

 Miscellaneous Travel Savers:

If you are traveling by air from our market area, we may be able to save you money and airport hassles.  With today’s baggage fees and rules you can find yourself in a real bind if you had a great shopping find while visiting the Lowcountry.   Let The Mailbox & Shipping Center take care of those shipments and avoid checking extra bags and lugging them through terminals – they will instead arrive on your doorstep back home.   Free quotes are available for any item.    

Here are some of the most popular travel items we package/ship:

Golf Clubs                                        Beach Gear

Bicycles                                            Sporting Equipment

Excess Luggage                                Computers, Electronics                                


Estate Services:

If your estate disbursement situation requires short term storage of property or multiple shipments to various family members across the country, then The Mailbox & Shipping Center can expedite all these functions.    We can coordinate with the law firm/executor of the estate, or directly with family members receiving estate items.

Assisted Living Relocations and Storage:

When an individual or family moves into an assisted living or retirement center, they often need to downsize their furniture and other belongings.    We can help with items that need to be stored – short or long term – and with shipping items to friends and family members.    We can help make this stressful transition time more comfortable.

Art Shows and Auctions:

The Mailbox & Shipping Center has been the official receiving and shipping partner for the annual Hilton Head Island Art League National Juried Art Show for about eight years, working with a range of art mediums and price values.    We have also packaged and shipped unique art objects bound for major auction houses valued as high as $100,000….. Everything from one of the kind American Indian wooden sculptures to the 1998 World Series baseball trophy!

Military Relocations and Storage:

Military families are some of the most mobile people around, but sometimes they need an assist beyond the standard services offered thru their branch of service.    The Mailbox & Shipping Center is available to help with these needs, servicing Parris Island Marine Corps Training Depot, Marine Corp Air Station Beaufort, and Hunter Army Airfield.
