Your October 2018 Lobster Delivery Planning Calendar

Lobster delivery



(It’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, too.)



October opens the door to warm kitchen memories and bright foods. Make plans. Imagine family, visitors, and friends, enjoying our freshest hard-shell Maine lobsters.

Order as late as noon for next day delivery !

But, you may be planning for a Sunday or Monday lobster party. Columbus Day is on a Monday, for instance.
Scheduling deliveries for a live Maine lobster event on those days may require a little more consideration.

If UPS delivers to your Zip Code on Saturday,
you have two good Weekend-Event options:
• (1) on Saturday, blanch lobsters for grilling on Sunday or Monday
• (2) on Saturday, leave them in the shipping container, cook ’em up on Sunday

If UPS DOES NOT deliver to your Zip Code on Saturday,
you still have two good Weekend-Event options:
• (1) on Friday, blanch lobsters for grilling, boiling, or steaming on Sunday or Monday
• (2) order frozen lobster tails any weekday before your event; enjoy them whenever.

Reading the calendar:

Much about entertaining at home has to do with “just-in-time” delivery.  So, the color coded planning calendar above is helpful when considering your event schedules. This month you may want to host a lobster party on a Sunday or a Monday. That requires some extra planning. If you are considering either of those Event Days, maximize your “just-in-time” lobster delivery workarounds by checking this: ★ on Blanching Lobster.

•  RED dates are Saturdays, for which UPS may not deliver to your zip code. Some zip codes get no Saturday deliveries. Give us a call (800-949-1944) if you are not sure UPS delivers to your address on Saturdays.
•  BLUE dates are normal delivery dates. When you order or call us by noon you can get delivery as early as the next day. You can schedule for next week, or next month, too.

•  GRAY dates are, of course, dates UPS does not deliver our priority over-night packages, simply because they do not pick-up priority over-night packages on the day before.


You receive tracking number notice when we pack and label your packages on the afternoon before the delivery date you requested. Notice includes estimated time of arrival for your package. Always handy to know.


Also, we send you a “delivery made” notice the minute your package arrives at its destination. A supporting feature when you send a box of lobsters to your home address and you are at work. Or, if you send lobsters as a gift to friends or family members you’ll always know when they received your unforgettable gift .
