View Full Version : Question on Friday Shipping/Saturday Delivery

08/13/2009, 10:51 AM
I have a quick question for you. When one orders fish, inverts, etc. from your California facility AND Diver's Den or Coral Farm fish, corals, etc. from your Wisconsin facility in the same order, and chooses the "Saturday Delivery" option, will all of the items ship on Friday for Saturday delivery?

I thought this was the case because the summary order page states that if one chooses an upgraded shipping option for the fish, inverts, etc. from the California facility, the same upgraded shipping option will be applied for the fish and corals shipping from the Diver's Den/Coral Farm facility in Wisconson, free of charge. However, when one adds the items to the cart and applies the Saturday shipping option, there is text at the bottom that states that the fish, inverts, etc. from the California facility will ship on Friday and be delivered on Saturday, while the fish, inverts, etc. from the Diver's Den/Coral Farm facility in Wisconsin will ship on Monday and be delivered on Tuesday.

What is the correct shipping date in such an instance? Due to work commitments, I can only receive shipments on Saturdays, so I am looking to receive all items on that day.

Thank you.

I have also found that if you can go pick up the package at the FedEx place on Saturday you don't have to pay the $22.50, but check with the FedEx place and make sure they will let you come get it on a Saturday. Mine isn't crazy about it but will allow it if it's a must.
