View Full Version : heat during shipping
06-04-2005, 09:18 AM
I was wanting to order some cases of raw bars and granola from
but was worried that during shipping they may overheat...
being that I am in Texas and all (i should of ordered them a month
ago! drats). Is this a legitamite concern, or am I just paranoid?

I would think that if you had them shipped overnight you would be ok. I know what you mean about Texas as I have a lot of family there and when we vist it is to hot to be outside let alone packed in a box of a hot truck!

I too would think about this. I have wondered in the past when I have bought expensive essential oils and they are delivered to my doorstep, left in the sun and the box is hot!
The overnight idea sounds good.

Thank you for the replies!
I will check out how much overnight shipping charges are
and proceed from there.
A month ago I wouldn't have worried so much, but it's starting
to heat up around here now. If only I was more organized :rolleyes:
Well also the $$$ just came in, hubby in sales so it's feast or famine
right now it's feast; 2 months ago it was famine - go figure.

Since it can get to over 180 degrees in a closed car in the sun in Washington state, where it is really temperate, I would think you have a valid concerne.
Maybe you could order things to go to a PO box, and then pick them up there, so they don't sit on your door step in the sun, or maybe you could hve them delivered to a neighbor who will be home during the day.
Or maybe you could have them shipped fed ex over night, and then pick them up, there are countless things you could do.
Hope you figure out what will work for you.
