They are usually pretty good.
Maybe the bad weather in parts of the nation is affecting your shipment. Did you track it? Or call?

Glad they arrived safe and sound. The best thing is to check weather along their path before having the breeder/owner ship them. Not all people selling animals care what the weather will be like or if there could be a hold up, unfortunately :(

Well, it was an over night delivery to be here my 10 am. Im patient so gave them and extra hour. After that, they felt my wraith.... cost a few extra hours, so no biggie. Just, from all the horror stories ive heard, i did get a bit nervous for a few mins.

I only ever had three fedex overnight. tortoise deliveries. They were all perfectly on time or early.
Unfortunately, I did have one arrive deceased. Shipper error. It was a sickening experience. I am gunshy about shipping in anything but perfect weather now.

My dad works for the company they have been having a lot of trouble because of the poor weather at main shipping areas. Glad they made it safe and sound and home for the holidays!
