Tape the box securely and stick the air bill envelope to the top of the box. I add another Perishable sticker on the top. There is no need to punch air holes in the box, and this would weaken the structural integrity.

Here is the finished box. I like to leave packing until the late afternoon, and I like to drop the box off in the last hour or two that FedEx is open. The more severe the temps are, the later the drop off.

Wow, that is super informative! If I ever need to ship a snake, I'll definitely be re-reviewing this!

How much do the supplies generally cost you and where do you get them?

I get most of my supplies- boxes, bags, delis, heat packs, cool packs, from Superior Shipping. If you are on their e-mail list, they have sales and free shipping frequently.

I get my Phase Change Material (PCM) packs from TCP Reliable. They are a brand called Cryopak. Donna Swisher is my contact. They have started offering a reptile shipping set, but I haven't checked into it yet. It's nice that they are responsive to our community, though.

I save up peanuts from items I order by mail.

I haven't added up how much a complete box with one or two PCMs, etc., adds up to. Hopefully less than $10!
