You may only ship Monday - Thursday for arrival Tuesday - Friday.
There is no delivery on Saturday or Sunday.
Do not send a live reptile package on a Friday.
In some outlying areas, Priority Overnight packages are delivered by noon for business addresses and 4:30 p.m. for residential addresses. In remote rural areas, Priority Overnight packages are delivered by 4:30 p.m. or end of day.
Use the Quick Quote feature on our home page to check the GTA before booking.
You will also find the GTA listed during the booking process for your label.
And, it will be printed on the label itself.
Businesses often have morning drop-offs. If morning delivery is essential, consider sending your package to a business address.
When you're shipping a live invertebrate, it is important that your recipient be available to receive your package when it arrives.
• If you require delivery confirmation, the recipient must be alert, ready and waiting for the FedEx driver. You do not want the package going back onto the truck for delivery the next day.
• If you do not require delivery confirmation, tell your recipient to check all around the house to make sure the package does not sit outside.
Special note for Alaska and Hawaii
Do not ship live animals to Hawaii.
Because of its remoteness and limited FedEx services, certain zip codes in Alaska require one or more additional days for pickup and delivery of overnight shipments.
To make absolutely sure you are not sending a package to one of these locations, pre-determine the guaranteed delivery date and time by going to FedEx Rates & Transit Tool and entering the ZIP code you intend to ship to. By selecting “Get quick quote” you will know if additional time will be required to deliver your package.
