What carriers do you accept?
We accept shipments from all major carriers, including UPS, FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, DHL, and the US Postal Service (USPS). We do not accept freight shipments.
Note that Amazon sometimes delivers with their own mail carriers—please ensure you edit your delivery information to have the times in which the package office is open.
