Siberians of the Heartland shipping:
Shipping is $400. I am asking $130 extra for puppies that need to be shipped. This price includes: $35 for the puppy crate, $35 for the health certificate, and $60 for my 290 mile round trip to the airport. That does NOT include airfare. Normal airfare is usually $270. VIP airfare is usually $300, I do avoid this as much as possible. The total amount for shipping that you will be paying me is $400. This covers ALL standard shipping costs. Again, if your puppy need to be shipped VIP you will be charged extra.
I ship via Delta Airlines. With Delta, most airports have a summer program that provides a air-conditioned van that takes the puppy straight from the check in building to the airplane just before the time of departure and arrival. When this is provided the 85 temp rule does NOT apply. Not all airports are part of this summer plan so when that is the case shipping during certain times of the year is very tricky. If the temperature is 10 degrees or less and 85 degrees or higher any where on the itinerary during the time when the plane touches ground then we are unable to ship. So Please keep this in mind when making the decision to adopt a puppy. When temps are an issue, your schedules need to be flexible as we will be able to ship your puppy at some point, but can not guarantee the day and time. The prices I give you are just a very close estimate. We can not know the price until the airport cargo area weighs the puppy and crate. Shipping is very safe and I trust it completely or I would not be shipping puppies this way.
I also want you to understand only certain airplanes can carry live cargo. So when you check online at flights available. That does not automatically mean that your puppy can fly on that particular aircraft. The planes that carry live cargo have a separate room for live cargo ONLY. This room is built to secure the pet carriers. This room is also pressurized and temperature controlled.
Payment and shipping fees will need to be made in full no less than 24 hours before the planned shipping date or I will not ship the puppy. IF you fail to pick up the puppy up at the airport, within 24 hours of arrival, I will have the puppy shipped back to me. Your puppy will be sold to someone else and there will be NO REFUND. When the puppy has to be shipped back to me I have to pay shipping costs and boarding costs. Once the puppy is back to The Puppy Ranch and IF it has not been sold when you contact me, depending on the circumstance, you can choose to pay all the extra fees and have your puppy returned to you, but 0nly if I feel it would be in the best interest of the puppy.
We reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone.
***Remember to make arrangements, if something happens and you can't pick up your puppy. At least let someone know you are getting the puppy so they may contact me and let me know what is going on. Post notes up around the house for shipping information and also notify friends and family as much as possible. I understand that sometimes these puppies are surprises, but there must be someone you can share this with. If I am contacted most the time we can get something worked out. I am willing to work with you. When I am unable to contact you because of this problem I am assuming that you are irresponsible. I have to look out for the well being of my puppies.
