    How to send my collection to myself?

    I'm moving and being forced to fly to the location because according to some people in my life, driving is not an option, ha ha. (its a long story).

    Anyways, I'm trying to figure out how to possibly send (all adults) 6 Goinis, 2 Eastern Coachwhips, 4 Kenyan Sand Boas, 10 Ball Pythons, 1 Asian Vine Snake, 4 King Snakes and 3 Corn Snakes. Also, I have two tarantulas and a baby savannah monitor.

    I'm new to shipping, and I'm not certified. I know how to pack up the animals, but I'm not sure exactly what shipping I should use, because it is against the rules with most companies. However, I figured you guys must have something figured out. Do I just act like I'm shipping a regular package? Would the snake be hurt if they put it in cargo or something like that? Also, what do all the shipping options mean and which one should I pick?

    DO NOT break any shipping rules if you plan on shipping,
    A) Get certified
    B) Use a service like ship your reptiles
    C) Find someone that is certified to ship them for you

    You don't have to be certified to ship thru ship your reptiles. Have them shipped to a FedEx location near where you are moving to pick them up.

    Robyn from SYR is a member on here and I am sure he can answer any and all questions you may have. Best of luck to you with the move!

    You can book your shipment(s) through our site

    You would be shipping under our FedEx certification, and you would be agreeing to meet our Shipping Standards for packaging, weather parameters, etc.

    We have a detailed Get Help section that will walk you through it.

    You can also insure your shipments for On-Time and Live Arrival through SYR, up to $5000 per package.

    It may seem daunting, but it is actually quite straight forward. Feel free to contact us directly if you have questions, we would be happy to walk you through it.
