    I posted in the "Wanted" section looking for full service tanneries in or near MN. I guess also im curious about how a guy ships them. Thats the one thing that makes me a little nervous about getting too far away? Whats the best steps to take?

    Skin it, roll it as small and tight as possible, bag it, freeze it.... then do you insulate the box? Do u you always get next day shipping? I guess I just dont want my capes to start slipping before they get to the tannery!

    What steps do most of you take in this situation?

    Thank you!

    ShastaDonegan Lets start with ridiculous and move backwards.

    There is a tutorial on shipping frozen items in the tutorial section...in fact most everything you need an answer to has already been answered a thousand times, just do a search for it and even check the old forums as well.

  3. Since you are in MN Speedee will get it there the next day. If you wait until it gets colder you shouldn't have to insulate the box.

    Thanks for the PMs Mr.Nut, youve been most helpful!
  5. Speedy is a great service in Minnesota. When you order from vandykes/mckenzie you can request speedy too and get it very fast. Like order in the am on Monday, Tuesday it arrives.

    Yes I always go with that option as well when ordering thru Mckenzie... not to mention its cheaper as well!
