SHIPPING

About Shipping
Orders under 6lbs will be subject to Next Day Air (for AK/HI this is 8lbs). We subsidize the Next Day Air cost to make it as affordable as possible. Without, the product is too likely to thaw during transport. A simple work-around is to order more than 6lbs so you can pay the normal rate for 2-Day shipping.

How much is shipping?

Express (Air) Shipping:
2-3 Day Shipping (for lower 48 states) ranges from $19.95-$44.95 per box (for shipments over 45 lbs and required to ship in multiple boxes, there is an additional charge). We are working on providing a shipping calculator so you can have an exact amount of what you should pay per weight and destination.

Ground Shipping: We only offer Ground Shipping to places where we can reach you in 2 days. Since March 2020, the ground network for FedEx has been extremely inconsistent and we had to remove the locations that fell within a 3-Day window. 

Can I ship using an Overnight Air service?

Yes, we offer an Overnight Delivery Service to all 50 States
This is also based by zone and weight.
The range (for the lower 48 states) is from $30.00-$90.00 depending on location and weight.

Does Stay Classy Meats ship outside the USA?

No, we currently do not ship outside of the 50 USA States.  Our apologies.

When will my order ship?

Monday or Tuesday. All orders received Tuesday-Sunday on Monday. If you a special shipping request, please contact us (info@stayclassymeats.com).

Why is there a delay between ordering and shipping?

We have found that shipping Mondays and Tuesdays prevents orders from arriving late due to FedEx shipping challenges. We do not ship over the weekend which is why we cut off shipping on Tuesday. In select circumstances where Overnight shipping service has been ordered, we can ship on Wednesdays and Thursdays, but you need to contact us with this special request.  

How long does it take to receive my product?

We ship all products 1-3 Day via Fed Ex (ground or air). All orders will be shipped out Monday-Tuesday to ensure that all packages arrive between Tuesday through Friday.

Will the product ship frozen?

Yes, all product will ship frozen. We will use frozen gel packs to maintain the temperature in shipping for up to 4 days - most orders arrive between 2-3 days. We strive to have your product delivered frozen, however, this is not always the case. Rest assured, your meat will be ok if it arrives thawed or partially thawed. 

Do I Have To Be Home When My Order Arrives?

No, our packages are designed to keep the meat frozen at your front door until the end of the day it arrives. Just put it in the freezer or refrigerator when you get home. the USDA recommends, meat that is cool to the touch (between 32F-40F) is perfectly fine to return to a freezer setting. https://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/food-safety-education/get-answers/food-safety-fact-sheets/safe-food-handling/freezing-and-food-safety/CT_Index

What do I do if the meat arrives thawed?

Shipping meat across the USA is not a perfect science.  We do our best to prepare for the worst in shipping to you.  That said, we never know if the driver will leave these boxes in the sun for an extended period of time.  If you do encounter thawed product, please place the items in your freezer as soon as possible.

A vacuum package leaked, what do I do?

From time to time, micro-perforations or a faulty vacuum seal may occur in the plastic vacuum sealed package.  These are caused when the items rub together in their frozen state or when the vacuum packaging machine does not have a good seal.  While unfortunate, and potentially messy, the meat is still good.  We recommend removing the items from the package with the leak and placing it in a freezer bag and into the freezer.

There are missing items in my box.

Please take a photo of your packing list and email us at info@stayclassymeats.com, as soon as you can, to let us know what is missing from the box.
