Important Shipping Guidelines, Especially For the Holidays

The holidays are fast-approaching and that means you need to know what you can ship, and how and where you can ship those items. The hustle-and-bustle of getting it there in time can be stressful. But that’s where Postal Connections comes in.

However, it would behoove you to know what you can, and cannot, ship. For example, did you know that certain dangerous items, like firearms/ammunition, knives, fire extinguishers, alcohol & cigarettes, paint, human remains, and infectious materials are prohibited to ship with most carriers…but not with FedEx?
