SPECIAL COVID-19 MESSAGE FOR IPC/PO CUSTOMERS
The Village is requesting all customers who enter the IPC/PO to wear a mask since it is difficult to maintain social distancing in this building. The Village is also requesting that islanders and visitors reduce the number of shipments to the IPC during the pandemic.
The Island Package Center (IPC) is working on reduced/staggered schedules to protect staff and limit access to the public. To further protect staff and our customers, the Village is asking all customers to minimize shipping to the IPC. The Village has requested that residents order only essential items (like medicine). Some non-essential items are: bikes, entertainment items, electronics, furniture, and home décor.
The Village of Bald Head Island Package Center & Post Office is the destination for all of your incoming mail and packages. We operate as a contract postal unit of the United States Postal Service. In addition to receiving and distributing inbound packages, we also sell stamps, shipping supplies and will help you prepare your package for shipment. We ship via USPS and UPS. We also accept pre-paid packages from UPS and FedEx.
Please Pick Up Your Packages Promptly – Due to limited space in our warehouse on-island, please pick up your packages promptly after you have been notified that they have arrived. After making contact with recipients multiple times, packages may be returned to the sender. If your package arrives and you are not on the island, please keep in mind that you can always arrange for a neighbor, property manager, or other trusted individual to pick up your package for you.
Meal Kits & Items Requiring Refrigeration – If you are having items requiring refrigeration sent to the island, please call us in advance (910-457-9700 ext. 1013) to ensure that there is space for your package as space is limited. You can also arrange for someone to pick up your package as soon as it arrives.
Oversized Items – Oversized items that are not shipped by FedEx or UPS, such as sofas or sectionals, are usually shipped via a common carrier like DHL or others. The IPC does not accept these items. These items will need to be shipped to the Bald Head Island Warehouse at Deep Point Marina, barged over to the island, and then trucked to its island destination. Please contact Bald Head Island Warehouse at 910-457-5007 to arrange the shipping and delivery of these items. If you have any questions please give the Island Package Center & Post Office a call so that staff can assist you.
