How do you ship wax try ins and rims during summer and keep them from melting en-route ?

Maybe a foam lined shipping box like they use for shipping cold items? That would take care of everything unless someone leaves it in a vehicle in a parking lot for a long time.

A few years ago I found a bunch of those sealed plastic freezable cooler things, the blue ones about an inch thick. But these were tiny in comparison. Maybe the size of a 3oz perfume bottle. Picked up a bunch.

I had found them about this time of year at Martins grocery store, which is owned by the same group as Giant grocery store if you have one but not the other nearby. Probably available on Amazon. Everything else is. Cost a quarter each I think?

I think we have a winner here, will go to dollar store today and check that out, ty!
You're welcome,
I was thinking about this last night. I assume you are shipping next day or 2 days .
Is it by ground or air? Maybe it doesn't matter since both could be exposed to excessive temps.
You could also freeze the wax prior to shipping if you have the time .maybe experiment first in case it cracks.
The office could refreeze the pack prior to returning the case since this will be equally important.

Yes, I'm priming all my accts, even those more than ten min away, that the days of me going back and forth multiple times for the same case is almost over. I can't make money and stay on the road all day. I plan to use usps as it's the most economical, and most will take just a day, just don't want to send melted wax ;-p

I think you should be fine with one day.
Maybe a bigger pack for longer trips.
I assume usps charges by weight so that could be a factor.

Quite welcome. Just don't try my trick of putting them alone together in the box. The cooler puck smashed the rim. Forgot they play basketball witht the packages. D'oh!

I hope you were able to find some. If you have Krogers grocery store nearby they have them $1 each right now.

I put labels on them to help them come home.
One side has Please Return to over my Logo, other side with the address & phone number and on the outside of the box a note taped on "Cold Pack Enclosed".
With people being so jumpy about stuff these days, figured it wouldn't be a bad idea. Plus it might get unpacked without using a 9'' knife that way.
