How Consolidation of Packages Works :

Consolidation is a process where we take smaller packages and put them together into one bigger box.

The account holder  ( My Mailbox subscription only ) creates a shipment by logged into the account panel. Next, a shipping method must be selected. IndianMailBox will then attempt to consolidate all selected packages into the box. 

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:

  • Keep the outer shipping box
  • Keep inner retail/product packaging
  • Remove all unnecessary packaging leaving only the item(s)

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.

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.


How to Place a Consolidation Request :

You can maximize your savings through our MY 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 INBOX

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 . We cannot merge or mail out packages without this information. 

You will need to complete the following options:

  • Choose your preferred shipping method
  • You can add shipping insurance
  • Option to SEND NOW or HOLD. Hold will give you the option to change shipping method after consolidation. We will hold and wait till you select that package to be sent to us. You can do this by clicking on SHIP SEPARATELY directly on the package through the SPECIAL INSTRUCTION link.
  • SHIPPING ADDRESS allows you to send the consolidated package to an address different than your default shipping address. If you don’t select this option, package will be sent to your default address.
  • RE-PACK OPTIONS. You can throw away the original packaging material or keep it.
  • Finally, you’ll need to select all the packages you wish to be consolidated. Again, only packages with completed customs declarations can be consolidated.

If you have any other special requests (verifying the contents, immediate shipment, etc.) please use SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS directly on each package.


How to create a Multiple Package Shipment Request :

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 UPS 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.

To enter an MPS Request, simply:

  • Login to your account, and go to the “INBOX” section
  • Click the “MPS Request” button and a form will appear
  • Select your Warehouse with packages you want to ship using MPS
  • Select all packages you wish to include in the shipment and click “Select Packages” button. Some packages may not be available for MPS shipping. These packages are displayed on the bottom of the page
  • Enter the delivery address
  • You can then select your shipping method from a variety of carriers
  • Confirm your order
