If you have any questions regarding shipping and handling**, we welcome your inquiries:

Fresh Crab Cakes require expert handling to maintain the freshness of our product. We use Federal Express as our primary shipping company as their quality and experience is second to none.

This means that if no one is there to receive the order from Federal Express, the driver will leave the order at the door. This signifies acceptance of the order (the same as a signature). You will be responsible for payment of the order. We highly recommend that someone is there within the designated timeframe to accept delivery of the order.

If this is a gift, please be sure to alert the recipient that something perishable is coming via FedEx and to try and make arrangements to accept delivery.

Receiving your delivery fresh and delicious is our priority!
We must therefore follow a schedule which will insure that your order is received in a timely manner and in excellent condition.
For any special needs or requests please feel free to contact us.
