The holiday shipping season is upon us! Let Neighborhood Parcel handle all your shipping and packaging this season! Ship Early and save! The new FedEx and UPS Ground shipping rates are much lower than the US Post Office Priority Mail rates! Avoid waiting in long lines and come to Neighborhood Parcel for quick and easy shipping service. The biggest advice we can give this holiday season is to shop early! When you do, you can utilize the Ground Services of FedEx, UPS, and The Post Office to get your gifts delivered economically without having to fly at the last minute to their destinations. Also, keep in mind that all U.S carriers will implement their “Holiday Surcharges” after Thanksgiving, the fees are to offset the spike in volume and the additional cost the carriers incurred in handling the holiday volume, they can range from $4 to $12 per package depending on size and zone!

Fantastic service! I used to travel to the Boson location and always struggled with traffic and bad service. I did a quick Google search and came up with Neighborhood Parcel FedEx service point. I used them for 3 years now and I am happy to endorse them for service and always having the best FedEx rates. Why would anyone pay retail rates at when they can use this company and support local businesses?

I am glad this location is near my house. I can do all my business here and be in and out in minutes. On my last visit, I was able to have them print my documents, notarize them, fax them back to my office then FedEx the originals to my boss. Awesome!
