PerishablesShip Perishable Items

Need to send some fresh Iowa sweet corn to Georgia? Do Uncle Bob and Aunt Ginny miss morel mushrooms? Do you have a friend or family member that needs a tenderloin fix? Pak Mail can make it happen. We are up to the challenge for packaging and shipping anything perishable so it arrives as tasty as the day it was shipped.

Don't worry about packaging. We have styro-foam packaging material for any size box needed. So go ahead, get some kolaches from Sykora's or bake Grandma's rhubarb muffins and bring them to us. We'll make sure they get there for that special taste of home.

At Pak Mail, we want your delectable morsel to arrive fresh so here are a few tips to consider:

  1. It is best to ship perishables, such as baked goods, meat or fruit, on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.
  2. Whenever possible, ship perishables for next-day delivery to minimize time in transit. Avoid shipping perishables on a Thursday or Friday, or else the package may suffer extreme temperatures for as many as four days.
  3. Keep items refrigerated or frozen until just prior to bringing them in to Pak Mail. Bring in a few frozen gel packs with the goodies to keep them cool. We may be able to place the item in our in-store refrigerator for storage until courier pick-up.
  4. Freeze cakes, including cheesecakes and layer cakes, before shipping to keep them solid. Wrap the frozen cake in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil to help keep it cold.
  5. Despite precautions, icing may smear and decorations may become crushed in transit.
  6. Brownies and bars often travel better than cookies. Cookies, especially large ones, can be wrapped individually and placed on a strong paper plate.
