At The Packaging Store in Alexandria , we help you with small shipments whether moving into a dorm or downsizing into an assisted living facility.

Are you a senior downsizing into an assisted or independent living facility? Are you a student moving into or out of a dorm? Are you a homeowner who wants to ship a single item to a vacation home? Then the smart choice for your local shipping company are the trusted experts at your local Handle With Care Packaging Store. Click here to find the location nearest you.

Shipping a few items is different from shipping a whole household. Many moving companies have minimum weight requirements such as 1,500 to 2,000 pounds. It doesn't make sense to pay for more weight than you actually have to ship. Instead, call The Packaging Store, the leader among small shipment companies.

A small quantity shipment typically includes one or few pieces of furniture, appliances and boxes of belongings. At The Packaging Store, we don't turn you away for not having a van full of belongings; we welcome you because we specialize in small quantity shipments. Local shipping companies are a better fit for small shipments than the "big guys" only because each individual Handle With Care Packaging Store location is owned and operated by a small business person who is genuinely concerned about every shipment that goes out the door.

Our top priority is the safety of your possessions. We'll keep your furniture, collectibles, artwork and electronics safe and sound. We are respected and trusted among moving companies.

We make shipping worry free! Safety: We ensure that your small shipment of furniture, heirlooms or other large, fragile and valuable items are delivered intact.

  • Temporary storage: If you're a student who needs storage for the summer, or a senior who needs storage during your transition, we can ship your items to our warehouse and deliver it to you later (check with local franchise for availability of this service).
  • Distribution: Need to distribute belongings to family members? We can arrange shipping and delivery of multiple items to multiple locations just about anywhere in the world.
  • Protection: Transit coverage is available on everything we pack and ship.
