Ways To Save

Clock3 min read

At Good Start Packaging, we work hard to save you money. With a wide range of options, our clients find that their shopping cart bottom line pricing is generally 5-8% lower than competitors who bake shipping fees into their case prices and offer "free shipping." 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. 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.

In this article, we will cover:

Access Hundreds of Quantity Discounts

Instead of having to order $2,000 worth of product to be eligible for discounts, you can now order as few as two cases of the same product to save money. When available, bulk discounts are listed on the product page near the "Add To Cart" button. Update your cart to see your discounted price, price per unit and savings! Purchasing multiple cases of different products? Reach out to inquire about special volume pricing.

Ship To A Commercial Location

You can optimize your shipping costs by shipping to a commercial address or local FedEx Ship Center. A commercial address is cheaper to ship to 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 CenterNOTE: We cannot accommodate shipments to FedEx Hold for Pickup locations including Walgreens, Dollar Tree, Shaw's, etc.

Street Address
City, State, Zip Code

Take Advantage Of Shipping Carrier Discounts

Our shipping carriers 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. Placing a very large order? Reach out for a custom freight quote.
