About SkyBOX Consolidation

The SkyBOX Consolidation service is designed for customers who make purchases from different merchants or in various vendors in the United States and / or Europe and they need to optimize their costs. This service allows our customers to accumulate purchases on a period of 30 days. After the consolidation date, the service groups and / or combines packages sorting the category of the products bought and customs laws of the respective countries in order to make the shipments as economical and effective as possible for our customers.

Our package consolidation service is very useful, since by combining packages you are only charged for the first pound (usually higher) only once. Then you would pay the regular rate for all the other additional pounds. But sometimes it may be more convenient to ship products in several shipments of categories with similar taxes than in a single shipment with many different taxes into a single box for the single shipment pay the highest tax of all products that go in.

To make the smartest shipping and optimize expenses, the following variables are used for analysis:

  • Customs value commodity / Product category.
  • Declared value of the product.
  • Weights and dimensions.
  • Freight of each combination.

Items we may not consolidate

Items may be considered ineligible for consolidation service because they are fragile or their shapes are not suitable: Golf clubs, guitars, umbrellas, laundry poles, skateboard, walking sticks, etc.

Package protection

Basically, we use the same package as they arrive at our storehouse. We try to use the most appropriate sized box for your items. In the event that we don't have an appropriate sized box at our storehouse, we will use a box that we consider suitable from a different source.

However, if the items were only put in a bag, we may use a cardboard box in order to prevent any damage and lost items. Anyway, we use packaging supplies in order to protect the package from possible damage that could occur in route to its destination.
