Used to have to sign. No idea what the heck is going on now. The guy just scanned the box and gave it to me. o_O Our new internet router was left in our mailbox. Not that it fit in there or anything. Geesh what is going on...

EDIT: Common sense is not so common anymore.

Haha it would be nice to have someone that understands the care bettas should have delivering them!! If doing that were feasible I would definitely join in with delivering haha.

BeautifulBetta, I'm in Ardrossan. Generally I just tell people on a farm a few minutes east of Sherwood Park though, mainly because no one has any idea where Ardrossan is lol.

Oh my how awful. Hopefully you can work out a new plan for next time. Dog people never ship dogs in the winter or summer.

Yikes! Now THAT is a loss.

I think, what might end up happening is all of us (especially is close to each other) aught to work together. For instance when I can I will probably get a GPS and do a monthly trip to Edmonton, which means delivery of fish there lol. That way gas cost can be split between 2-20 (or more) people. (Example: 30.00 gas is no longer 30 for delivery fee but instead maybe 5.00. Plus cheaper on the receiver as they do not need to drive)

My mind always thinks now, to figure out how to doubley ensure fish arrive alive across Canada?

How about Purolator? lol
If i had a vehicle then yes i would make arrangements to deliver but considering the roads.... a great van good on gas would do the trick lol

I heard about those fishies too!!! I think I am going to wait to either get them myself in the safety of a warm car or wait to ship!!

Well, I was thinking up things since I do work in Staples and we have a shipping section. Would foam pads (made to keep stuff from dealing) help? Tim foil? Those emergency blankets? Or something to that sorts? I also know since... The smaller an item (like tanks... Small tank VS big tank) the quicker it is cold. I want to find out what materials get colder faster (foam, styrofoam, newspaper, bubble wrap) and maybe do tests to see how well a tin foil insulated box or foam insulated box takes to get cold (comfort of my own home and balcony)

Hey Sena, My friend got back to me and we can fly a box from TO to Calgary for 40 bucks up to 30 lbs. It would come in my container and it is shipped every Tuesday morning.
