  4. Parcels not picked up will be charged a return fee in the amount no greater than the original shipping fee.

  5. Due to limited space in the parcel room, long-term storage is not available. Packages must be picked up within 14 days. Packages not picked up in 14 days will be charged a storage fee. Packages not picked up in 30 days will be returned to the shipper.

  6. Due to the high volume of packages delivered at one time, please allow up to three [3] hours after you receive notification that your package has been delivered to call for delivery. This will give ample opportunity for our employees to check-in your item for delivery.

  7. When shipping via UPS, FedEx, Amazon Prime or any other shipping service, please label your packages by name, beach destination and address as follows:
