Is it possible to consolidate my packages into one box?

Yes, you can consolidate up to five packages into one box. PostFromUS offers two types of consolidation choices.

  1. Repack and Consolidate: Your packages will be opened and repacked into the smallest amount of boxes to reduce space and cost. This may take up to a few hours to process.
  2. Standard Consolidation: We will automatically calculate the total size and weight of your packages in their original sealed packaging and consolidate them into the smallest amount of boxes possible.
