IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Due to some recent issues, we will no longer be able to
accept any packages that are received with no name on
them. TO AVOID ANY ISSUES, MAKE SURE YOU USE
YOUR NAME WITH OUR ADDRESS. DO NOT PUT
SHIRETOWN PACKAGE RECEIVING ON THEM. We are
sorry we have to do this but we have no choice. With
100+ packages coming in each day, we cannot be
responsible for trying to figure out who a
package/delivery belongs to. These packages belong to
you and we do not have the authority to open them.

ALL PACKAGES/DELIVERED WITH NO NAME ON THEM,
WILL BE RETURNED TO THE SHIPPER. WE WILL ASSUME
NO ADDITIONAL CHARGES THAT MAY BE INCURRED.

We also will be held harmless and not be responsible for
any missing or lost packages/deliveries that come
through with no name on them. This also applies to large
shipments that are received by common carrier ....
VERIFY with them that they have YOUR name on them. By
choosing us to receive your goods, you are agreeing to
these terms set forth effective March 13, 2024.

PLEASE ....... CALL IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE PARKING SOMETHING IN OUR YARD  ........ THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF TRUCK TRAFFIC WE HAVE EACH DAY. 

  Please allow Mike time to get your packages checked in.  IF you get notified by the shipper that it has been delivered, it will still take him time to process the 200+ packages he is getting right now.  * If you have been set up with email notification, you will get a message from us when it has been checked in.   If you would like to get an email notification of when your package is actually "checked in" by us, please send your email address with the names of who would be receiving packages for that email address, and we will get it added for you.  The email is mike@whoufm.com.   Once we get it set up, that will take the guessing game out of it for you.  We also may check packages in on Saturday or Sunday but are not open for pick-up until Monday morning.   

WE WILL ONLY BE HOLDING PACKAGES FOR 60 DAYS.  IF PACKAGES ARE CLAIMED, WE WILL HOLD THE EXTRA 30 DAYS AND THERE MAY BE AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE BASED ON THE ITEM(S).  WE ALSO ASK TO HAVE YOUR PACKAGES PICKED UP AT YOUR EARLIEST CONVENIENCE, WE ARE NOT A WAREHOUSE AND SHELF STORAGE IS PRECIOUS.

PALLET PRICING IS INCREASING TO $50.00 A PALLET AND WILL BE HELD FOR 10 DAYS.  AFTER 10 DAYS, AN ADDITIONAL STORAGE FEE OF $10.00/A DAY WILL BE ASSESSED UNTIL PICKED UP.  WE CANNOT BE USED AS A STORAGE FACILITY.  WE APPRECIATE YOUR COOPERATION.

If you are a new customer, when placing an order, use YOUR name with 143 Military Street  Houlton, ME  04730.  There is no need to sign up before you place an order.  Please don't put Shiretown Package Receiving on it.  If your name is not on it, we have no way of knowing who it belongs to.
