How can I save on my shipping costs?

You can optimize your shipping costs by shipping to a commercial address or local FedEx Ship Center. A commercial address will generally be less expensive than shipping to a residential address. Also, FedEx Ship Center store locations have been certified such that any loss or damage to your order while in transit or in their possession will be covered. Tip: Download the FedEx Delivery Manager to keep track and manage these deliveries.

Below is how to enter your shipping address at checkout when shipping to a FedEx Ship Center. NOTE: We cannot accommodate shipments to FedEx hold for pickup locations including Walgreens, Dollar Tree, Shaw's, etc.

Your Name

Street Address
City, State, Zip Code

Our shipping carriers also often offer discounts when shipping many cases at once. When your total order reaches a multi-pallet size quantity (generally about 40 cases), we can ship using a freight carrier which can reduce per case shipping costs. Reach out for a custom freight quote and See these tips on how you can save even more on your order.

Note that companies who offer free shipping absorb this cost by adjusting their product prices to be higher than they should be in order to subsidize free shipping programs to consumers who live farther from a merchant. At Good Start Packaging, we pride ourselves on transparency. We offer the highest quality compostable and recyclable packaging products at competitive prices. We encourage you to focus on the bottom line total of your bill.
