Hidden Savings

The Value of SYR/SYA beyond Discounted Labels

Did you know you can save money with ShipYourReptiles and ShipYourAquatics beyond the discounted shipping labels we advertise on our websites? 

Custom Rates – The discount listed on our websites is just the starting point. We love getting to know our customers as individuals and working with you personally to set up the rates that will best fit your shipping volume and business needs. 

On Time Arrival Insurance – For just $2.50 per label, you can insure that your package will be delivered within the FedEx Guaranteed Time of Arrival. (Typically 10:30AM, but sometimes Noon or 4:30PM for outlying areas.) If the package is delivered late for any reason at all, we will reimburse you for the full shipping cost of that label. FedEx waives all guarantees whenever a live animal shipment is involved, so we’ve created this insurance program to fill in that void. 

If you’re only shipping a single package, the chances are very high that it will be delivered on time, as the vast majority of Priority Overnight packages are. But if you ship regularly, chances are also high that a shipment will be delivered a little bit late once in a while. The more frequently you ship, the more often you might see a late delivery. If those packages are insured and you make your claims for those late deliveries, the savings can really add up. 

Time is Money – If there is ever an issue with one of your shipments, call us and let us deal directly with FedEx for you. Our Customer Service Reps have the connections necessary to resolve most every issue, and the expertise to make it happen as quickly as possible. They also keep you from spending your day stuck on hold or arguing with FedEx employees that probably don’t know how live shipping works. 

We Save Lives – As mentioned, our Customer Service Reps have the connections and expertise necessary to solve most any shipping problem, large or small. When a live shipment gets lost or delayed, we go to the mat for you to find it and get it moving once more. We can press the right buttons to get an animal out of a storm-stuck airport ahead of other Express packages, for instance, or rerouted to be held at a secure hub. Every life we save is money that you don’t lose! 

Helping Hands – We’re always happy to advise you on other ways to save. Not sure which bulk packaging options might be the most cost effective for your business? We’ll help you choose. Need a coupon for an unusually large and expensive shipment? Let us know and we’ll see what we can do! We’re ready and happy to answer any questions you might have about getting the most bang for your buck at ShipYourReptiles and ShipYourAquatics.
