How to Ship
We are excited you are interested in shipping our products. Here are a few options that are available.
Most of our customers will set up their own shipping with the local truck lines that specialize in handling live plants. This allows them to have plants picked up at several nurseries to arrive in one shipment. These trucks are temperature-controlled and they have air ride trailers. This is the best choice to ensure that sensitive plants arrive in the best condition possible. These truck lines charge by the cubic foot and they have minimums. They will go pick up your orders from multiple nurseries and consolidate it for you on their dock. Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions or need us to suggest some of these truck lines.
An option for smaller orders is the FedEx Freight Box program. FYI, this program is often referred to as the Pallet Program. If you are looking to ship an order of 48 Cubic Feet or less (which is approx 8-10 of the Flori-Design shipping boxes), we often recommend this option. Please keep in mind the FedEx Freight Box Program is delivered on a truck that is not heated or cooled. Nor is it an air ride trailer. FedEx will not guarantee that live plants will arrive safely. We also require a 24-48 hour (business days) lead time to prepare your order when shipping via FedEx.
