    There are a few factors that determine the cost of shipping.
    The size box, the weight and the distance shipped.
    If you use Ship Your reptiles, you will receive a discount.

    I noticed ups overnight costs are a lot more than usps and fedex. Is ups the preferred tortoise shipping method?

    UPS is good at what they do, but they a higher rate of late packages than FedEx. I only use FedEx to ship my reptiles.

    I ship mine Fed-Ex over night through Ship Your Reptiles and I have had no problem whatsoever so far. All the hatchlings I have shipped have arrived before the guaranteed time of 12 noon and sometimes that arrive 1-2 hours earlier than that.
