Consolidation is a process where we take smaller packages and put them together into one bigger box.
The account holder selects a box; we recommend the USPS size limit (26”x13”x13”). Next, a shipping method must be selected. IndianMailBox will then attempt to consolidate all selected packages into the box. If there are any extra items, we will automatically use another box, unless otherwise specified under “Advanced Options.”
When we see your request, we retrieve your packages and double-check that we have the correct ones. Depending on your request, we can remove all unnecessary packaging which might significantly lower the postage.
You have three options:
If you are planning on reselling the products, we recommend keeping the original product/retail packaging.
Once we consolidate, we measure the new package and weigh it again. We also take a photo of all the items being consolidated in order to ensure greater accuracy. If you would like more photos, please use the “Special Request” function.
You can find larger boxes under “Advanced Options” on the Consolidation page. You can also place a special request and we will pack your packages on a pallet. Please keep in mind that this might not be cheaper due to the weight and cost of the pallet. Always remember to check the shipping calculator beforehand.
If you are concerned about fragile items, you can always place a Special Request to add extra packaging material. There is also an option to keep fragile items in their original boxes.
We do not recommend consolidating packages bigger than the UPS limit of 26”x13”x13”. These larger packages have an increased risk of damage during shipping.
Please allow up to 1-2 business days for all consolidation requests to be processed.
You can maximize your savings through our VIRTUAL MAILBOX membership which allows CONSOLIDATION of packages. This means you can combine several smaller packages into one bigger package.
Here’s how it works:
Every time we receive a new package, we will send you a notification with the weight, measurement, tracking number and sender info, so you can easily identify each package.
When we consolidate your various packages, we always find the most efficient method.
First you’ll need to log into your account and click on “PACKAGES IN WAREHOUSE.”
This page displays all the packages entered in your account. Please remember to fill out a customs declaration for every package you want to consolidate (learn how). We cannot merge or mail out packages without this information. Once you’ve finished, you can click on the “CONSOLIDATE PACKAGES” button on the top of the Packages section which will take you to the form.
You will need to complete the following options:
If you have any other special requests (verifying the contents, immediate shipment, etc.) please use SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS directly on each package.
If you have more than one package going to the same delivery address, you can save a lot of money by using our Multiple Piece Shipment (MPS) service. This service is only available for Premium users, and will be available for DHL,and FedEx shipping methods. You can get the best savings when shipping several small packages, but you have the freedom to decide if you’d like to use MPS or not.
