Briarville Tobacco Pipe Repair and Restoration

Customer:

Ric Farrah is the owner of Briarville Tobacco Pipe Repair and Restoration, a repair and restoration shop for tobacco and smoking pipes. The shop serves pipe repair needs of customers across the world – Customers typically contact Briarville Tobacco Pipe Repair and Restoration via email or Skype and after consultation, mail in their pipe(s) to the shop for repairs. A Stamps.com user since early 2013, Ric uses the service exclusively to send the repaired pipe(s) back to his customers.

Challenge:

Before he used Stamps.com, Ric would have to hand print labels for all the packages he shipped to his customers. With a company slogan, “Pipe Repair As Close As Your Mailbox,” it was important for Ric to ensure timely delivery of the repaired pipes to his customers, leading to several trips to the Post Office. This process was labor intensive and very time consuming, and Ric knew something needed to change.

Solution:

With Stamps.com, Ric hardly needs to go to the Post Office any longer! He simply prints the shipping labels using the software and he is done. The local mail carrier picks up all his packages right from his shop, allowing Ric additional time to focus on the actual repairs and expanding his business. Moreover, with the Stamps.com scale, Ric knows the exact amount of postage to use for his packages, removing any need for guesswork.

“The local mail carrier picks up all my packages from my shop. That allows me to avoid Post Office trips, and I can spend my time on expanding my business.” – Ric Farrah, Briarville Tobacco Pipe Repair and Restoration
