Custom Packing & Shipping (return to table of contents) (ask a question)

Bring your treasure in and our experts will securely pack and ship it for you. We can help whether it is going to the other side of town or the other side of the globe. We have high quality boxes, bubble wrap and other packing materials. We are specialists in shipping electronics and estates. Since there are no stairs and ample parking, lots of people use us for this. (Hint: If you have large packages, use a shopping cart or borrow our dolly.) We routinely ship packages up to 150 lbs...for heavier packages, just give us a call. We use automated shipping systems, which save our customers time preparing shipments; store the shipping information electronically; and reduce errors.

Lost or damaged shipment?

Mailbox Rental (return to table of contents) (ask a question)

In San Francisco, there are many home-based businesses as well as consumers buying and selling merchandise on the Web. One of the important decisions you need to make is whether to use your home address as your receiving address. Because of the many advantages, private mailboxes are more popular than ever. The advantages of a private mailbox at Jensen's for individuals include: 

We accept your packages from all four major carriers (UPS, FedEx, US Mail, DHL/Airborne). As you may know, P.O. Boxes can not accept FedEx, UPS or DHL/Airborne packages. 
If your box fills up, we have systems in place to store the excess mail until you come in to pick up your mail...you could call our mailboxes "expandable mailboxes".
We can accept CODs for you by prior arrangement.
We have a free "call-in service", to check if you have mail or if that important package has arrived.
Whether it is a long vacation in Palm Springs or a business trip to Tokyo, Jensen's can forward mail to out- of- town travelers, all you need to do is contact us and let us know where and when to forward your mail.
Your packages will not be left unattended on your porch. There is always someone to sign for your package at Jensen's, and the packages are held for you in a safe, secure setting. There is no need to stand in long lines at the Post Office waiting to get your packages or mail.
Incidents of mail theft from home mail boxes and mail collection boxes continue to rise. Some thefts include the removal of entire collection boxes! Identity thieves harvest personal information from credit card bills and other mail, costing Americans millions of dollars in lost time and actual monetary losses. You can minimize your chances of being a victim of identity theft with a private mailbox at Jensen's Mail & Copy. The mailboxes are monitored to avoid theft of the mail.
Your mail is private, only you have the key, and in cases where you forget your key, with proper ID, you can still receive your mail. 
You know how tough parking in San Francisco normally is! The fact that there is ample parking in our center's parking lot makes it far easier for you to check your mail. 

For those using a private mailbox for their businesses, additional benefits include:

You won't have pictures of your home appearing when people Google your business, instead it will be a clearly commercial center. This is good for your privacy and for your business image. 
You will have a prestigious street address (on Diamond Heights Boulevard). A private mailbox address presents a more professional image than your home address. This builds credibility with customers and contributes to your image as a professional. 
Your company can collect job applications, without divulging your company name. (If you like, you can also use our fax number in a similar manner...contact us for details.)

Who uses private mailboxes?

Private mailboxes are used by Internet shoppers and sellers, frequent travelers -- including sales representatives for businesses, home-based businesses, entertainers and public figures who don't want to reveal their home address, personal ad respondents, divorcees, people living in roommate situations, etc.
