Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to bring my parcel to you?

Why do I need the zip code when placing an order?

Our computerized ordering system operates on a zip code to zip code algorithm. It calculates the distance between each point based on the distance, vehicle type and package guide. This will determine what you will be charged.
