Navis Pack & Ship in Naples To Celebrate 1-year Anniversary

Navis Pack & Ship of SW Florida, a Naples packing and shipping service company, will soon celebrate its first-year anniversary. Andy Ahrens and wife Wendy Ahrens relocated last year from Milwaukee, WI, and opened the local business on Aug. 1, 2018. Navis Pack & Ship operates an office in the historic Downtown Naples area at 780 5th Ave. South, plus a warehouse and packing facility at 7800 Drew Circle in Fort Myers.

According to Andy Ahrens, his Navis Pack & Ship outlet has specialized the past year in shipping family heirlooms, including artwork, antiques, grandfather clocks and chandeliers, as well as china, porcelain and other fragile items, to family members and friends around the world. Other unique items shipped recently have included computers, technology and medical equipment, machinery and antique furniture, along with items obtained at auctions. Customized packaging, crating and logistics solutions are available through individually tailored wooden crates and cartons, he said.

Ahrens said a growing number of Naples residents, along with estate and trust administrators, have turned to Navis Pack & Ship to ship unique, personal items to trustees and heirs in the U.S. and abroad, including Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. The company recently added an international shipping agent who is familiar with customs regulations, exchange rates, governmental policies and local business practices in other countries and major international cities.

“Our international business is a big part of the value we bring to southwest Florida,” said Ahrens, whose family previously vacationed many times in southwest Florida while living in Wisconsin. “It’s a special kind of niche that we offer. And we provide on-site consulting with the family before the packing ever begins. We have the experience that you won’t find with traditional parcel shipping centers or moving companies.”

Ahrens is active in the Naples business community as a member of the local chapter of the Community Owners, Mangers, Associates (COMA) of Florida, a Florida-based, non-profit educational and informational networking organization for condominium owners, community associations, community managers and affiliated professionals.
