Special Projects


The following guide walks you through how to properly request a Special Project with Ship Essential. Special Projects are one-off tasks that fall outside of the scope of the regular warehouse workflow.

Examples include but are not limited to:

  • Unscheduled inventory audit

  • Product Labeling & Barcoding

  • Repackaging products

  • Kitting and/or bundling

  • Quality control

  • QC Receiving

Before performing a Special Project, Ship Essential will send you an estimate of how long a project will take. Since these are estimates, we will do our best to work within the given timeframe, however additional work hours may be needed to complete your project.


  • Step 1.  Submit a request to support@shipessential.com

  • Step 2. A Ship Essential team member will get back to you to confirm that your Special Project has been approved and will provide the estimate of time that the project will take.

  • If you receive an email requesting additional information, please follow up to provide whatever additional information has been requested to approve your project.

  • Step 3. After your Special Project has been approved, a Ship Essential team member is assigned to your project and your project will commence

  • Step 4. Once completed your account will be billed for materials and labor.


  • $50/hr per hour per person billed in 30 minute increments

  • Materials needed to complete project

  • Shipping Costs

Please note: There will be an extra fee added for approved rush requests.

Thank you!
