Shipping Question

Hey
I'm about to ship some snakes. I'm just wondering if its necessary for me to use heat pads during the summer? I've only shipped and received during the winter before.

I would say no. But I don't know your area. Where is it going to be shipped to?

One thing to remember, in the high altitudes it is very cold. who are you shipping with? If you're shipping with air canada they have heated holds. if you're shipping with west jet they don't. you may want to include some water bottles just to provide stable temps

OMG, you ALWAYS use heat packs. Just because its summer here, doesn't mean its warm up in the sky!! With the altitude that the planes are at, its FREEZING up there. Literally.

Of course you use heat packs. If you have never shipped before, contact someone who has so they can show you how to do it.
