How Consolidation of Packages Works
Consolidation of packages means the collection of items in a small package to a large package.
Customer select packages that need to be consolidated, then you need to choose a courier to shipping out; we suggest that the USPS size limit (26″ X13″ X13″). We do not recommend consolidating packages bigger than the USPS limit of 26″x13″x13″. These larger packages have an increased risk of damage during shipping.
When the warehouse receives your request, we will check and confirm the items correctly again, according to your demand, we can get rid of the unnecessary items, which may help you reduce the postage.
You have three options:
- Keep original invoices.
- Remove all unnecessary packaging (such as shoe boxes).
- Ship with best choice of carrier if selected one does not work.
- If you are planning on reselling the products, we recommend “Keep original invoices”.
You can find a larger text box under “Other requirements” on the Consolidation page. You can also attach special requirements, we will be packaged according to these requirements. If you are concerned with fragile items, you can always add additional packaging materials for special requirements. There is also an option to keep fragile items in the original box.
USGoBuy will then attempt to consolidate all your request items into one package, if there are any extra items, we will put them in another package, unless otherwise specified in the “Other requirements”.
Once the consolidation is complete, we will measure the package and weigh it again. If you would like some photos for it, please click the button “Request Photos”.
Please allow up to 1-2 working days to process all consolidation requests.
