Shipping Methods and Options

Variety is the spice of life and sometimes the best way to save money. At Hollywood Global Shipping Co, we understand that by offering our customers more options, we are better able to meet their needs and keep the happy and satisfied. That is why we have a network that includes some of the biggest companies in the shipping business. We have cultivated these relationships for years in order to provide our customers variety and the best pricing we possibly can.

Each carrier option also comes with further options for method of shipment. Meaning you can choose from an expedited service for something you need right away to a slower and less expensive method for items that you can wait for a bit longer.

We are constantly searching for ways in which we can increase our customers’ satisfaction and meet all of their needs.

Listed are some of the carriers with whom we work:

  • USPS Express Mail
  • USPS Priority Mail
  • USPS First Class Mail
  • FedEx
  • FedEx Freight

Now let’s take a look at some of the features of these options to better help you choose the correct shipping method for your needs.


This is one of the quicker shipping methods available from the US Post Office. This option can be used for both international and domestic shipping and package tracking is provided. The tracking for the international items is known to have a bit of a lag time and there are size limitations for international packages being sent using this method.

There is the option to purchase insurance through the post office for the contents of the package.


Priority mail is comparable to Express mail in many ways. You can use it for both domestic and international packages and tracking is included with the service. International service has historically been a bit iffy with this method, however, and we recommend our customers use this option for domestic shipping only. There are better options for international packages.


This is the method that most regular correspondence is sent using the US Post Office. For package shipments, however, it can be unreliable and is not recommended for that type of use. If you are not in a rush for a package and do not need package tracking, this is a cost effective way to ship.


Flat Rate shipping is a great affordable method for shipping domestic packages. Please note that tracking is not an available service with this method and it is not a quick way to ship. If time is not an issue and you don’t mind not being able to track your item, this is a really good choice for your domestic shipping needs. This method also comes with package weight restrictions for envelopes (4 lbs) and packages (20 lbs).


FedEx is our best recommendation to customers who are shipping internationally. We can obtain great rates through the carrier and their track record with international packages is very good.

FedEx also notifies shippers when additional fees are due when the package arrives at customs so arrangements can be made to take care of them. Customs fees can be paid online for your convenience.

Someone must be available to receive the packages at the destination or they will be returned to the sender after 5 days.


The freight services at FedEx are great for large shipments. Additional discounts come with shipping larger quantities and Hollywood Global Shipping Co may be able to save you even more money if you ship through our services.

For any issues with customs, we cannot handle them for you but we certainly can and will provide support to our customers who have any questions about how to fill out the required forms and suggest checking with us prior to shipping to eliminate issues at the time of delivery.

The great thing with your account is that you can make a method your “preferred” method of shipping so you will not be required to select an option each time for each package. Your options can be modified by you at any time.

    Lia Summerville

  • "Living outside of the US means I miss out on a lot of great stuff we just can’t get over here. I used to try to get some great stuff I loved online, but some sites won’t ship outside of the US. Once I discovered Package Services, all that changed. I can now buy what I want and no worries about their shipping restrictions."

    Leticia Cater

  • "I was planning on expanding my eBay business, but couldn’t imagine how I was going to handle the increased demands shipping would place on my time. A fellow eBayer told me to check out Hollywood Global Shipping , so I did. It sounded like a great idea and I decided to try out their services. They have been such a big help and I am able to concentrate on other aspects of the growing business while they handle the grunt work."

    Lance Ralph

  • "Our marketing department had this great idea to do a mass mailing promotion. It sounded good in theory, but realistically, we couldn’t find a way to implement it. Too many issues with time and manpower. Our marketing director did research and found She called them and they assured us they could handle the mailing for us. They did, it was a great success and we are sure to use them in the future."

    Catarina Thurmond

  • "I just got a promotion a few months ago and though it’s been great, it takes me away from home quite a bit. I hated coming home to piles of mail to sift through. I heard about and set up account. What a relief. No more piles, no more hours sorting thru junk mail and I can have them send stuff to me directly while I am out on the road if I need to have it right away."

    Lino Lampe

    Malissa Hendren

  • "My husband insists on driving this obscure car that while it does get a lot of attention, is a pain to fix when it breaks down. The parts are so hard to get and most need to be shipped to us. The last time, I insisted we put Package Services on the case. I was tired of the hassle. They found the part and had it to us in just a few days. Now if only I get the husband to get a new car!"

    Ardella Gummer

  • "We needed to secure a presence in the States but were in no position to set up operations there just yet. secured us a phone line and a mailing address in the States so we could begin expanding our business there. It gave us some legitimacy with Americans we were unable to obtain before and incredibly, it saves us money on shipping and phone calls. "
