Are your items packed? Do you have your shipping label and USS customer identification label on them? Great! Time to ship your items! All items must be to our facility by the deadline date.

→ We will charge according to the total number of boxes you send. Ex: If you register for 2 boxes and we receive 5, you will be charged for the additional 3 automatically after we receive them.
Late packages will be rejected and returned to sender. No exceptions.
