COVID-19

(01.05.21)

The pandemic has affected delivery service. FedEx no longer obtains signature upon receipt and delivery-time guarantees have been suspended. We strongly recommend packages be shipped to FedEx Ship Centers (FSCs) followed by prompt pickup. We may not offer compensation for casualties sustained during delivery to residential addresses when the forecast is less than ideal and FedEx is late, nor for packages with heat packs left over an hour at FSCs.

Shipping

(updated 10.05.20)

FEDEX PRIORITY OVERNIGHT: We ship FedEx Priority Overnight, M and Th, to any address in the continental US (includes Alaska). Priority Overnight shipping charge is based on zip code and subtotal. Shipping cost decreases with every $50 increment in subtotal. By $500 shipping is free. Save further by shipping to a FedEx Ship Center (FSC), hold at location.

When entering your address, type street address followed by comma and apartment number. Information entered otherwise may result in a cancelled order.

FedEx Ship Centers

(updated 10.05.20)

FEDEX SHIP CENTERS: In any weather it’s always safest to ship to your local FedEx Ship Center (FSC), hold at location. FSCs get packages generally before 8:30 a.m., whereas local businesses and residences get packages after an additional truck ride, with delivery not guaranteed until 10:30 a.m., noon, or 4:30 p.m. The later the delivery, the higher the risk. With extreme heat, cold, heavy snowfall, or other circumstance we may insist on delay or delivery to a FSC.

Save up to $10 shipping hold at location. Select “Ship to a different address”/”FedEx Hold at Location,” enter your zip code, select from the drop down, and use the map to find and select a FSC near you. The address will be automatically entered and charges will recalculate to include the discount.

FedEx does not allow live animal delivery to secondary FedEx centers (e.g., Walgreens, FedEx Office, FedEx Print & Ship Centers, FedEx Authorized Ship Centers), only FedEx Ship Centers (just those three words).
