Shipping stuff is a hassle. To ship an item, you have to first purchase a box and packaging items, print labels, stand in line at post office and then save your receipts to track your packages. At ShipBob, they take care of all these steps- from packaging to tracking, so that you can spend your time on things that matter to you more.

You can use their Web form or smart phone application Android to schedule a pick up. Once your order is confirmed, a Shipbob agent (Ship Captain) will come over to your location within 30 minutes and collect the item(s) from you. They will package the item for you, and mail it via the lowest cost carrier for the selected shipping option. They will price shop for you across all carriers (USPS, FedEx and UPS) to give you the lowest cost possible, saving you time and money. They will send you the tracking numbers and even update you when the package is delivered!
