We are not offering our shipping service right now, but if you are a local customer who wants to send meat to family or friends farther afield, you can use this cooler for shipping meat. We will pack your order into it and leave enough space for dry ice.
Also great for dropping off meat and grocery gifts to your quarantined neighbors and friends or keeping in your car for those last-minute grocery runs, less bulky and heavy than a standard hard-side cooler, and biodegradable + recyclable!
To ship, stop by Ingles or Harris Teeter and get ~5lb of dry ice. Careful when handling it not to touch the ice itself; it will burn you! Use the plastic bag it comes in to grip it, or wear gloves.
Place the dry ice in the cooler on top of the frozen products. You may need to break the ice up a bit by dropping it on the floor and then shuffle it around in the cooler to make it fit. If there is too much dry ice (over 5lb), and it won’t fit, you can take some out and just dispose of it in the yard. It will evaporate.
Fold the liner around the meat and dry ice and tape the box up thoroughly using packing tape. Take the package to the Post Office or the FedEx shipping center near Westgate Shopping Center. (If you go to a FedEx retail location and tell them there is dry ice in the box, they will refuse to take the package.)
It doesn’t quite matter how you ship it, it just has to get to its destination in two days. Any more than two days, and your dry ice will have melted and the meat will begin to thaw. Count on shipping this side of the Mississippi to cost around $30 and perhaps double that (or more) to ship out west.
