Wow that took a long time to read. wish i got here earlier =P

To all those who got the waiver and have shipped snakes through FedEx legally- What is the shipping charge for shipment of a "harmless reptile" ?

And is there any progress on the business to business clause?
Anyone talking to james brown about it?

All these shipping companies are just stupid if they dont realize the income they will bring in if they allow shipping of harmless reptiles.

Ye spoke to James he was firm on Bus to bus no residential but alot of people are obviously ignoring that part hugh!

I have found my shipping to be between $45-55 for overnight delivery and have had customers not wanting to pay that. i simply went under rates and that is for a reg package at there normal rate.

I do not see how they care if it goes to a residential address because either way they will not guarantee it so why does it matter?

Oh well.

Hey guys,
I've read this thread but I'm still a little confused. I'll explain what I've done so far and plan to do and I'd really appreciate if someone who has been successful can confirm that I'm doing this right.

1.) I completed this application at

2.) I mailed my package with my application to the FedEx testing facility.

That's as far as I've gotten so far. The rest I'm not sure about. These are the things that I think need to happen next but I'm not sure...

1.) I assume that I will receive an approval letter from the testing facility.

2.) I assume that I need to mail or fax this approval letter to a FedEx sales rep.

3.) I assume that I will then receive a contract from Fed Ex that I need to sign and send back.

4.) Then I'll receive my waiver in the mail and be ready to ship?

Thanks in advance for the help with this,

Your good so far.

The test and development place will send you back a full report and that will contain if you have been approved or not to ship live reptiles.

They will fax a copy of that report over to your account rep. When you get you report back call and ask for your rep to call you and make sure they got a copy of it. Your rep will then send you over the contract(mine overnighted it to me no charge). Sign it and make a copy of that- then you need to send it back to your rep to sign. Your rep will sign it and forward a copy to everyone who needs it. Then they should send you back a copy as well with his or her name on it.

It was a bit frustrating in getting a hold of my rep at first the whole process took me 4 weeks to complete.

If you have any other questions just ask here or feel free to e-mail me directly a

one more thing

Ship all your packages online and you will save 10% off what the normal rates are. It is free to sign up at FEDEX.COM.

Thanks a lot! That was very helpful.

I'm still not quite sure how everyone is getting around the business to business clause. If you are not sending from or to a business address, how do you slide this under their noses? Even if everything is done entirely online, it is fairly evident if a package is going to a business or not. I was all set to send out a test package, but I don't think this account would help me since almost all of my customers are at residential addresses. Thanks, Steve Tanner

It's evident that they do not really check, I have received reptiles from Fedex at my home address several times. As long as they get there money they do not care I guess.
