Shipping stuff to Reno

Postby Ivory Bill » Sun Dec 13, 2009 3:38 pm

We had planned on shipping stuff to a friends house near Reno, and now find that may not be possible.

Are there any business or whatever will accept packages, bikes and tents and that?

I don't have a good idea abour a particular company, but you might look into shipping companies with a pod-type thing. That might be cost prohibitive though.

We have had stuff shipped to Hotels in reno and Vegas - if you have a room there its not a prob. You could always add the room rate into your shipping costs.

You could contact the UPS store and see if it's possible and under what conditions.

A Mr. Pettibone shipped me a massage table by Greyhound from L.A. to Reno in a bicycle sized cardboard box. Same day service since busses run 24/7/365. If you're driving, the package will probably get there before you do...
