Hi guys,

I'd like to place a new Diver's Den order for delivery to Sacramento, CA on Wednesday. We've had a long string of +100deg days here lately, and that's not going to let up much over the next few days.

I'm thinking that I'll still be OK with the order, as it'll be en-route overnight, and FedEx delivery here is usally between 9:00-10:00am, when the temp should be still around 75 or so.

Do you see any problems with my going ahead with the order?

California Crow,

Thank you for your post. The bags containing the specimens are placed in special insulated coolers to maintain a stable temperature during the transit, and warmers or ice packs are used to compensate for extreme temperatures depending on the season. In this case, ice packs will be included to help regulate the temperature. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
