Why you Can’t Ship Perishable Items In a Car

Why You Can't Ship Perishable ItemsHave you ever wondered why there are so many weird restrictions when you ship a car? Like, you can’t have any personal items in the vehicle. Or, you can’t have any garbage visible, or how you can’t put anything other than clothes and linens in the trunk. These restrictions (and all the rest) may seem frustrating to you, but to a carrier they’re definitely needed if the shipping experience is to be a positive one for them. This is a big reason why you can’t ship perishable items in a car, but there are other reasons – some of them common sense – and we’ll explain some of them in the following paragraphs.

To start, any time you try to ship perishable items you run the risk of those items…well, you know…perishing. Things such as milk and meat have a short amount of time they’re good unless they are stored properly, and “in a car traveling two thousand miles across the United States” is not the right way to go about storing them. Oddly enough, any time a customer does slip something like that into their car before it’s loaded, it (spoiler alert!) spoils. Shocker, we know. And the funniest thing about it is the customer tends to get upset that the carrier didn’t take proper care of their items…which they didn’t know about…which were shipped illegally (literally)…which were unknown…you see where we’re headed?

If you ask a carrier if you can put ten gallons of milk in your trunk before they load it they will literally laugh at you. It’s not a serious question in their eyes because they understand how the industry works. Even short trips of a few hundred miles are likely going to take a few days to complete, because carriers have lots of other places to go other than your delivery location. They also have more important things to do than to make sure that your items are safe and secure. If you need to ship perishable items, don’t call an auto shipping company, contact the Post Office – at the absolute minimum they’ll give you tips and advice on how to ship perishable items properly and safely.
