California Based Business Releases Self Service Shipping Centers for Hotels

Allow guests to prepare and ship packages without staff assistance

SANTA MONICA, CA - JULY 22, 2008 - PopUp Shipping is proud to announce the release of "self service shipping", a center that will enable hotel guests to prepare and ship documents and packages with out the aid of hotel staff. Each center comes equipped with a compact all in one desktop computer, scale, label and receipt printer, and cabinet to house all items, along with a lockable mailbox for securely storing packages until a designated carrier arrives.

The rising cost of fuel is causing airport fees to increase with most airlines even charging for extra luggage. PopUp shipping provides an easy to use, convenient remedy to the frustrations added luggage can cause. Now guests can ship their extra items and souvenirs home with ease for less than most airlines will charge. 

Deborah Walker, Founder and CEO of PopUp Shipping states: "I am an avid traveler for both business and personal trips. I wanted to create a service that catered to the needs and desires of people just like me who are looking to make traveling as hassle free and as enjoyable as possible.  For me, that meant not having to worry about carrying all those conference materials on the plane or wondering how I was going to stuff all my souvenirs from vacation into my suitcase.  Our service is intended to relieve travelers of a few less worries and provide them a bit more convenience so that they can have a more pleasurable trip".

PopUp shipping provides small and medium sized hotels without full service business centers the opportunity to offer ease of use shipping services to their guests. Not only does this take the burden away from the hotel staff, but is a source of extra revenue without any investment. Each shipping center is available free with all supplies and support at no charge on a revenue sharing basis.
