Shipping items to or from Wyoming isn't always a fast process. Actually, it's sometimes quicker to drive the package to the destination. With the holidays coming, you need to start thinking about shipping packages now.

Over the last few years, shopping online has become the norm for many people. For folks in Wyoming, we get bored and go on Amazon or whatever our favorite site is, order and forget about it until it arrives a few days later.

For those that live in rural areas and outside of one of the larger cities in Wyoming, it may even take a few more days for your package to come.

Even with Amazon Prime, you're not going to get your package the next day in Wyoming.

This may shock you, but in some parts of the country, you can order something in the morning and it will show up within a couple of hours. I know, crazy right?

If you live in Wyoming and have family outside of the state, there's a good chance you send birthday or holiday gifts, items you've sold, or receive packages from family.

Figuring out how far in advance you need to send those packages, so they arrive in a timely manner or which service is going to be the cheapest, isn't always easy.

There are a few key factors that you need to figure into the equation:

  • Height
  • Width
  • Length
  • Weight
  • Shape
  • Distance
  • Time
  • Shipping company

No wonder it's such a pain to ship and receive packages. If you're sending multiple packages, it's going to be expensive.

If you're looking to find out how long it will take to ship an item and what the estimated cost will be,  here are shipping calculators for United States Postal Service, UPS and FedEx.




Since we're approaching the holiday's, more than likely the time will be longer and the price will be more expensive so plan ahead now.
