Be aware of your carrier's typical pickup and delivery schedules.
Liquids that do not cause injury can be shipped, liquids that carry the risk of spillage can be shipped in limited quantities, while hazardous or flammable liquids cannot be shipped. Corrosive, flammable, or poisonous liquids are prohibited by all carriers.
Some carriers will ship some liquids but not others. Depending on the type of liquid, carriers may impose additional charges or require supplemental labeling or instructions for how to ship. Because there are so many restrictions and each carrier and location may vary, it is important to contact your carrier to find out precisely how to ship your liquid items through their service to ensure your shipment reaches its destination safely and securely.
