Need some help. 


These would be several packages per week weighing up to 25 lbs, picked up 1 -2x per week in Nogales Az or Tucson.

You may not find a place that does not charge a fee per package, based on size and weight.  I left Mariposa storage in Nogales for starting the per package fees a couple of years ago when that business was acquired by CubeSmart.  The per package fee was typically $10 USD.
Some of the UPS stores in Tucson may still be without fees, but even the Green Valley UPS that I called charges per package fees.


Someone with experience with UPS stores in Tucson will respond, hopefully.


Good luck.  Please post if you find something workable.

Amazon has free storage locker pickup places, most open 7x24. Like Whole Foods in Tucson. Google Amazon Lockers

Bullshipper,
When I searched Amazon for locker locations in Nogales, there were none.  But when I used 85710 zip code for a search in Tucson, at least 8, maybe 10 locations were listed for just that area.  Some of the lockers were located in Quik Trip stores, with 24/7 access, some in other businesses that have limited hours.
Try your search again using a zip code in Tucson convenient for you.  


The key issue for you may be the size and weight restrictions for the lockers listed on Amazon web site.

Many resident of SC, also have a home in Green Valley, would it be unreasonable to set up a little business at a home in GG to accept and hold packages until pickup to SC could be arranged. Just a thought.

That's really not a bad idea. I suppose it could run afoul of an HOA (of which there are plenty in GV), but if the traffic was during normal working hours, that could be a small income stream for someone with some garage space.


I've been researching security systems for home, including Ring (now owned by Amazon), Honeywell, Scout and others and it's a snap to set up a porch camera with motion sensing that will alert you, via SMS or an app notification, when a package is at your door. You wouldnt have to be tied to the house, as long as they weren't items that had to be signed for.

The thing with Amazon lockers is that the packages need to be picked up fairly quickly. In 72 hours or less after that the package will be returned.
