Our Headquarters is in Pennsylvania where we have the ability to ship 90% of our Items. This is where most of our staff lives and works. This is home, born and raised. There are only a few things we don't ship out of PA. Red Sea Tanks, Reef Nutrition & Clean Up Crews. Check out the map below and you will see almost the entire east coast is 2 days via UPS Free Ground shipping. Pennsylvania all the way down to Georgia. Florida is 3 days via UPS and FedEx.
We also have the ability to ship 80% of the items we sell out of an Arizona Warehouse. This is also where all our Red Sea Aquariums are stored and shipped, we don't drop ship them from Red Sea like the other guys. What's great about that is the almost the entire state of California for example is a 2 Day shipment with UPS. So Fritz or Red Sea salt to California, it should be there in 2 days for FREE. There are a few brands that do not currently ship out of Arizona, Neptune Systems, Ecotech Marine and Hanna for instance. Those brands ship out of Pennsylvania but often ship Free 2 Day UPS Air.
Chicago is a new warehouse we opened this January but didn't tell anyone about yet. We are currently shipping heavy things out of there, Salt, Rocks, Sand, Innovative Marine fish tanks. We are slowly stocking it up based on what customers in the area purchase from us. Fritz, Red Sea, Tropic Marin for example, we have the ability to ship from Chicago. All of our Reef Nutrition Pods & Refrigerated foods ship out of Chicago via UPS 2 Day Air to anywhere in the lower 48 in 2 days. We also ship all of our New Clean Up Crews from Chicago, all via UPS or FedEx Overnight shipping. We do not ship any live goods or live & refrigerated foods via the US Postal Service, they are too slow.
