    Arrow Breeder Map and Shipping Suggestions

    The Breeder Map has been disconnected due to the massive amount of breeders using Pangea. Sorry.

    To help further the reptile community with shipping needs I have been asked to add a few links in regards to shipping to this post.

    http://www.shipyourreptiles.com/ aka SYR - Offers a cheaper alternative to shipping. SYR is no longer working with UPS but is now working with a contract through FedEx. They are a broker for shipping discounts. Read terms carefully and always pack your animals well and in the guidelines of SYR requirements. Keep in mind they do now offer shipping insurance on your live animal packages. Most breeders do not include this in shipping quotes so if you want it make sure to speak to them about it when you request you quote!

    Always check estimated times for delivery with Fedex and UPS. SYR does not offer the option to do this. Some zips are whats considered a 'rural route'. This means the box will not arrive till end of the day and you may have to look into other options such as for UPS: Next Day Early AM Delivery or arrange pick up at a UPS customer service area. You can get your time estimates at the link below.

    FedEx or SYR
    https://www.fedex.com/ratefinder/hom...&locId=express
    SYR uses FedEx Priority Overnight. *To get a FedEx First Overnight you have to book with Fedex directly.*

    UPS
    https://wwwapps.ups.com/ctc/request?...WT.svl=PNRO_L1
    UPS offers Early AM and Next Day that work for shipping live animals.


    For locations for pickups for FedEx got to http://www.fedex.com/us/ near the middle of the page you will see a 'Find a Location' area. Type int he zip for the address you want to ship to and click 'Find'. On the next page you must uncheck all the boxes but the 'Fedex Staffed' box and then click update results. Make sure to look at all the information on the one you choose. Some have strange hours of operation or other things that my make them unworkable for some shipping requirements.

    For UPS locations for pick ups go to http://www.ups.com/dropoff?loc=en_US
    Only check the 'UPS Customer Center' option as they are the only ones that will for sure allow pickups. Make sure to look at all the information on the one you choose. Some have strange hours of operation or other things that my make them unworkable for some shipping requirements.

    Here is a good link for how to pack your animals. This was originally a thread on Pangea as well but somehow was lost over the years.
