Awesome Shipping Company!

Hey everyone, I'm not sure if you all have heard of Golden State Overnight, but they are a great shipping company for packages being shipped within California, Arizona, and Neveda! Best of all, overnight packages start at $11.00 for a 1 pound package! I know this all sounds like an advertisement, but I have had nothing but great experiences with this company! I have been shipping with them for about 2 years now, and have never had one package delivered late, and all packages are delivered to my business at 8:30 in the morning, and when i ship to my customers, they get to their house by 10:30 AM! I had my first problem yesterday when I called in a pickup, and their computers crashed and were'nt able to contact the driver. I called them this morning, they apologized, picked up the package, and had one of their workers personally drive the package to San Francisco so the animals wouldn't spend another night in their box! I think this is great service. Their website says they dont accept live animals, but when I called they said they would accept mine- I ship hermit crabs. Their website is if you want to take a look! Best of all, no airplanes are used! Everything is sent by truck!

Haven't tried them, next time I ship dry goods I may look in to them. They don't ship live animals, so it's a moot point, but if they did it would be a definite no-no anyway, because they do all their shipping by trucks, come summer those trailers will be cooking hot.

They also do lots of their transporting through temperature controlled vans, and boxes that contain live animals are placed in with the driver so they're not stuck in the back of the truck!

I just opened an account with GSO, they are now approved to ship reptiles and have had no problem using them so far.

You had to bump a 5 year old thread for that?

Since the company didn't previously ship reptiles, it would seem that he did have new information.

Yes, instead of starting a whole new thread on an existing topic. It was only logical, no?
