Both UPS and Airborne Express are quite reliable in my area. Prices will obviously depend on the size/weight of your package. If it's a small package it might be slightly under $30 for overnight delivery.

I know we beat a dead horse over this....But here is an email and response I got from UPS on obtaining permission to ship live harmless snakes:

Dear Chris Moeller:

Thank you for your inquiry. Some live animals may be accepted
for shipment to U.S. domestic destinations with prior approval
by UPS. The following kinds of live animals are not handled in
UPS domestic ground or air services:

Live birds (including poultry)
Live warm-blooded animals, including, but not limited to, mice,
rats, rabbits, dogs, cats, hamsters, or guinea pigs.
All snakes, poisonous and non-poisonous
Poisonous reptiles
Poisonous insects
All spiders

Please note, One Time shipment of live animals is not a service
UPS is able to offer. If you have a UPS account and you are
interested in shipping a live animal that is not on the above
list, please provide us with your name, address, telephone number
with area code and UPS shipper number so that we may forward
your request to our Customer Assistance Department.

Thank you for using UPS Internet Services.

etc that would be required to ship live animals. My business,
KrystalKreations, entails the breeding and sales of nonvenomous snakes
(North American colubrid species i.e. corn snakes, rat snakes and California
kingsnakes). 99.9% of my business is done via the Internet and accordingly
there will be times when I will need to ship an animal to a customer.
Please contact me at my email address or cell phone *** *** ****. Thank you!!! Chris Moeller
