September Notes from Mike.
As we flip the calendar over into September, many of us in the shrink wrap marine industry are gearing up for what is forecasting to be a busy season. The new boat sales market saw a big jump up to the tune of around 35%-40% this year, and this could be a good sign for all of you marine suppliers and shrink wrap installer companies.
I would like to remind all of our customers to reference your fall mailing promotion, which will save you 10% on your online shrink wrap orders. Just use FALL20 at checkout and your discount will be applied to all shrink wrap on your order (excludes accessories). This promotion is available to our wholesale and retail customers. This could also be a great time for you to sign up for our business pricing if you haven’t already. You can do that here: dr-shrink.com/fall.
We have been stocking up and our warehouse and crew are READY for your seasonal fall orders. Contact one of our world class customer service reps today or use our user-friendly website for all of your shrink wrap ordering: dr-shrink.com.
Be well and stay healthy. As always, please let us know what we can do for you. Thank you for working with us.
-Mike Stenberg, President & CEO, Dr. Shrink, Inc.

PICKUP INFORMATION FROM THE DR. SHRINK WAREHOUSE FOR THE 2020 FALL SEASON
Due to COVID-19 restrictions and keeping our employees and customers safe, there have been changes made to our Customer Pick-Up process. Absolutely no customers are currently allowed inside of our building or warehouse at any time, for any reason. We are still allowing customers to drive-up to pick up their orders- orders must be placed and paid in advance and you will need to call upon arrival. Our warehouse staff will load your truck or vehicle as long as the following criteria is met:
Dr. Shrink staff will load the material if:
- The vehicle has a separate trunk, truck bed, or SUV rear gate.
- The vehicle has ample space to load.
- The space is cleared for the material prior to loading. (Note, if the space is cluttered or materials/items need to be moved, the customer will be asked to come back after they have made room for the materials)
Dr. Shrink staff will not load the material if:
- There is insufficient space.
- The space is not cleared.
- The customer wants the product in the back/front seats of the vehicle
Customers are welcome to load their own material if they are physically able. Please make sure you reference the weight and dimensions of your shrink wrap rolls and other items to be able to accommodate your pick-up.
Information to note prior to pick-up:
- Come to back of Dr. Shrink for pickup (shipping/receiving area)
- Please park to the left of the orange tent – do not block loading dock area
- Remain in your vehicle and call 800-968-5147 to let us know you are here for pickup
We are open for pickup Monday-Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm EST. We will also be open on Saturdays starting September 12th until November 21st from 9:00am-2:00pm EST. If you place an online order for Saturday pickup, the order must be placed Friday by 2:00pm EST.
