Seems best to use Reptile shippers rather than Fedex direct from what I've read but who are good 3rd party shippers for one-off sales here and there?

Everyone that I've bought slings from has used FedEx over night. I prefer that the shipment be placed on hold and I pick up the package at the FedEx office.

I use reptile express or ship your reptiles. I always compare the 2 and go with the cheapest. I have found them always cheaper than FedEx directly.

Using FedEx directly without being an preaurthorized live animal shipper is agianst there rules. You need to use one of the reptile/exotic animal shippers. Its easy enough to make an account and follow the companies rules/policies to ship.
reptiles 2 you, reptiles express, plus a couple of others you can google them.

In addition to this, using ship your reptiles, Repriles express, etc will save about 30-40% compared to standard fedex rates. An account costs nothing, so there is no reason not to use one of them.

If I recall correctly Ship Your Reptiles uses FedEx as the shipper.

If I’m not mistaken I’ve received a lot of inverts over the years just USPS

Both shipments of roaches that I received were shipped USPS.
Yeah I’ve definitely received mantids, roaches, beetles USPS. Oh and I think when I’ve gotten caterpillars they came that way too.
