Alaska and Hawaii
Unfortunately, UPS does not ship via ground service to either Alaska or Hawaii. As such, deliveries to both locations need to be shipped either 2nd Day or Next Day Air.
UPS delivers M-F and does NOT consider Saturday or Sunday to be standard delivery days. As such, Saturday delivery is only available in certain areas and requires an additional shipping cost. Please contact a Deer at 888-699-DEER to find out more details.
Dancing Deer ships all of our packages via UPS from our bakery in Boston, Massachusetts. We do ship to Alaska and Hawaii, but cannot ship outside of the 50 United States.
Street Address Required
We cannot not ship to P.O boxes, APO's or FPO's as UPS requires a numerical street address for all deliveries.
Saturday/Sunday are not Standard delivery days
UPS delivers on Monday through Friday. We can arrange for a Saturday delivery for an additional fee - please call us at 888.699.DEER to confirm that Saturday delivery is available for the address requested.
UPS delivers from 9:00 AM until 8:00 PM. Typically they will deliver to businesses first, and then to residential addresses.
Residential addresses typically do not require a signature and if left, UPS drivers are instructed to leave packages "out of sight & out of weather". HOWEVER, if there is no one there to accept the package, and the UPS driver does not feel comfortable leaving it for ANY reason, s/he is NOT required to leave the package.
Business addresses do require a signature, but not necessarily from the recipient whose name is on the box. Anyone in the building is able to sign for the package. Please be sure to include the company name and floor/suite number if you are sending to an office building.
*Important note on apartments: When delivering to apartment buildings, UPS drivers typically do not leave packages without signature unless there is a concierge, a mail room or a building manager available to sign on behalf of the recipient. Typing "please leave without signature" as part of the shipping address does not guarantee that the package will be released without signature. Please be sure to include the apartment number - delivery will be delayed without this address information.
Three Delivery Attempts
Following each delivery attempt, UPS will leave a note on the door following each delivery attempt. UPS will make three delivery attempts before returning the package to Dancing Deer.
