    How to become FedEx Certified to ship reptiles....

    Becoming FedEx Certified

    The process of becoming a qualified reptile shipper with FedEx is very simple. I have compiled a list to take people through the process.

    1. Set up a FedEx account. Setting up an account is very simple. Go to http://www.fedex.com/us/ and click the ‘Open an account’ link. Follow the directions provided. Make sure you write down you account number because you will need it in the following steps.

    2. Find your FedEx account representative. I did this by calling 1-800-GO-FEDEX. You will need to say. …TECHNICAL SUPPORT…REP. You will understand that when you make the call. Ask the representative to have your FedEx account representative call you. Then wait for the call. You will not be able to really do anything at this point, but make sure you get the contact info and fax number of your representative. You will need this information later after you get your test package results back.

    3. Prepare your shipping box for inspection and testing. You will need to set up a box identical to the way you would set it up for shipping a reptile (but without the reptile). An over box can be used to protect you box, just be sure to write OVER BOX on the outer box.

    4. Download this application and fill it out appropriately. http://www.fedex.com/us/services/pdf...pplication.pdf

    5. Contact FedEx Packaging Design and Development Services at 1-800-633-7019 and get the account number that will pay for the test package shipping. You do not have to pay to have the test package shipped, so this call can save you some money.

    6. Now you just have to wait to receive your test results. If you pass, call your FedEx account representative. The rep will ask you to fax them a copy of the paper saying that you have passed(or in most cases they will already have it). From this point, the rep will take care of getting the appropriate legal paperwork together. You will not be 'verified' to ship the reptiles until you sign these legal documents.

    7. Once you receive the paperwork, you will have to sign your name a few places then send it back to your rep. Your rep should then notify you when everything has went through and you are approved.

    Re: Becoming FedEx Certified....

    Does that look right to you all.....how does it sound April? I am working on getting together some pics and proper shipping information that we can ad seperatly and link from step 3 later.

    I figured it would be a good 'sticky' in the general herp section.....or even a new Business forum, if Matt would be up for it and you all think it would be a good idea

    Re: Becoming FedEx Certified....

    Excellent.

    Let me know if there are any other areas of the site you think it would fit (DIY or FAQ in "sections" for example and I'd be happy to do that.

    And at worst (or best?) we could put it in sections PLUS make a sticky in the forums that linked right to it.

    Re: Becoming FedEx Certified....

    House it in the FAQ or DIY part of the site, then make stickies in each forum to link to that. Then there is no way someone should miss it.

    EXCELLENT! Thank you for doing this! I had saved a link from Fauna where someone had posted something similar. Nice to know now that I can look for a sticky here when I'm ready to get set up! Thank you again!

    Awesome, thank you for that, I've been wondering! We plan on moving eventually (prolly not for a couple of years tho) and shipping may need to be an option, so I'm really grateful to know where to find this when the time comes!
