All orders containing perishable items will have $5.00 dollar insulated box and cold packs fee.
We ship on insulated boxes to mantain perishables items at a proper temperature during transit, which in most cases is 2 to 3 days.
Our insulated boxes also contain re-usable gel-packs and in some cases dry ice to maintain products frozen during most of the transit time of the order.
If dry ice applies to your order there will be an additional $5.00 charge.
If you live on Mountain Time, or Pacific Time, we strongly recommend to use the “Express” option instead of the “USPS Priority Mail”,
this ensures a much faster, and most important, guaranteed delivery times.
The USPS promises 2nd day on most major metro areas however, they seldom keep their delivery promises, and screw up a lot.
Avoid using this option unless you know your post man very well, and he knows you, and it is not a busy time of the year.
Keep in mind you are ordering food that you are going to be eating at a later time however, the choice is ultimately yours.
