    Unhappy SHIP YOUR REPTILES STOPS SHIPPING SNAKES

    Temporarily stop snake shipping

    Hi there,
    Due to some irresponsible shippers, UPS has directed our customers to temporarily stop shipping snakes with ShipYourReptiles.com.
    We are working hard to reinstate safe snake shipping for our customers and the entire reptile community.
    Other types of UPS-approved non-venomous reptiles — including geckos, lizards and turtles — may be shipped with ShipYourReptiles.com.
    To make your shipments easy, we recommend you drop off your packages at a Staples or Office Depot shipping counter.
    We will keep you updated on this matter.
    Thanks for your patience and support,
    -- Robyn and the ShipYourReptiles.com team
    Robyn@ShipYourReptiles.com : www.ShipYourReptiles.com

    Well shoot. People are still going to do it and it will make it harder for us as a community. If they already ship irresponsibly I doubt its going to change much.

    You would have to become Fed Ex certified to ship snakes

    Go onto Fed Ex's website and follow their instructions. You have to send out a box to a special address where they check your process and make sure you are following their rules

    The problem now is that there was no notice of this. They are stopping "cold turkey". So people who have snakes already sold, waiting to ship are pretty much screwed. They can't get Fed Ex cert. in time.
