Is shipping confusing the crap out of you? Are you overwhelmed with shipping days, pricing, and minimums? You are not alone!

Shipping might not be the most riveting topic to talk about, but it's definitely important!

Next... WHEN DO WE SHIP

YVH is open Monday through Friday from 9:00- 5:00 PST. We ship all 5 days but there are some rules that you will need to play by....

  • We primarily ship with FedEx, but do offer USPS. We recommend FedEx... always, but if you have a PO Box or don’t live in the big fat 48, we do offer USPS
  • NEVER SHIP FEDEX TO A PO BOX! We have lost many good hop soldiers this way, never to be seen again
  • All orders will be processed at 9:00 every morning
  • If you place an order after 9:00 it will be shipped the following business day
  • If you are past the 9:00am cut off and are experiencing a hop emergency don’t fret you still have some time... well at least until 11:00.
  • If you are having a hop emergency, and you are between the 9-11 window, shoot us an email at info@yakimavalleyhops.com or call us on 208-649-4677 and we MIGHT (might being the key word there) be able to get your hops to production in time for that day's pick-up.
  • If you order EXPRESS shipping, you cannot count the order day, as a shipping day, we will need a day to process your beautiful hops
  • If you order EXPRESS on a Friday and it is passed 9:00am PST IT WILL GO OUT ON THAT FOLLOWING MONDAY! 

EXPRESS OPTIONS

YVH ships express options Monday through Friday but there are some need to know details before selecting Express. The most important thing to keep in mind is that if your order is placed after 9:00am PST it will be processed the following business day. Below you will see all our express options... exciting stuff.

 

FEDEX EXPRESS PADDED ENVELOPE

This shipping service is our favorite here at YVH. Not only for our homebrewers, but also for those quick emergencies for the smaller commercial brewers. Best part is... IT'S ONLY $9.00! Sorry commercial brewers, these are retail sizes only.

  • $9.00
  • Fits up to 4lbs
  • Gets to you in two days!
  • Only ships to street addresses, NO PO BOXES!

FEDEX OVERNIGHT OPTIONS.... We have three of them!

We provide three different overnight options that will get that beer gold to you the next day. Whether you are a homebrewer or a commercial brewer we have overnight covered. Below are more details on overnighting all that flavor! I know everyone hates this word now, but these are all ESTIMATED! Mother nature sometimes has her own ideas.

Standard Overnight $ Priority Overnight $$ First Overnight $$$

Delivered next business day between 4:30 - 8:00 PM

Businesses are estimated to get shipment closer to 4:30 PM

residential will get this closer to 8:00 PM

Delivered next business day between 10:30 - 4:40 PM

Businesses are estimated to get this closer to 10:30 / 12:00 PM

Residential will get this closer to 12:00 - 4:30 PM

Delivered to all addresses between 8:00 - 9:30 AM

If you live in a rural or extended area, this time could be pushed to 2:00 PM

FEDEX 2-DAY

Although this has a similar name to our express padded envelope, this shipping method is meant for anything over 4 pounds. Same rules apply for box sizes and quantities, biggest difference is your shipment will come in a box instead of padded envelope, and you can fit up to 25 pounds of small pack and 44 pounds of bulk items. Check out the “Pound per box” page if you have questions on what can fit in our box options.

FEDEX 3-DAY SAVER

The 3-day saver is just that.... it saves your butt in just three days! The only difference between this option and the two-day, is the extra day in transit and the price is a few bucks cheaper.

When needing to select an express option we realize that it is STRESSFUL! And as much as we love our friends at FedEx, there are circumstances that are out of our control. Examples, mother nature, technical issues, FedEx gets robbed by the Sopranos. So, it is important to remember that these are estimates and, if lost along the way we will do our part by file a claim, and sending more hops your way, but more times than not, we won't be able to refund shipping fees. Although this is rare for FedEx to lose packages, it has happened in the past. 

GROUND OPTIONS

FEDEX HOME DELIVERY

Our Home Delivery option is great for homebrewers as well as commercial brewers who like to ship to a residential address. The prices vary, but you will get your order a little quicker than if you were to ship with the basic FedEx Ground option.  

HOMEBREWERS 

  • Prices range depending on the time of year and where you are in the country.
  • Fit up to 25 one-pound bags!
  • Estimated delivery time is between 3-5 Business days (west coast will likely get this a little faster).
  • Only ships to residential addresses, please for the love of all that is good and holy, NO PO BOXES OR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS!

**THESE ARE ESTIMATED TIMES, NOTHING IS A GUARANTEE!!**

 COMMERCIAL BREWERS 
  • Prices will range depending on the time of year and where you are in the country.
  • Fits up to 44 lbs in one box
  • Estimated delivery times are between 3-5 business days (west coast will likely get this a little faster).
  • Only ships to residential addresses, NO PO BOXES OR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS!

**THESE ARE ESTIMATED TIMES, NOTHING IS A GUARANTEE!!**

FEDEX GROUND-

Ground is nothing fancy, but it gets the job done! Ground will get those precious hops to your commercial address within 5-7 business days. All the same rules apply as FedEx Home delivery. The only difference is you must have a commercial address. 

 

FEDEX 2-DAY

Although this has a similar name to our express padded envelope, this shipping method is meant for anything over 4 pounds. Same rules apply for box sizes and quantities, biggest difference is your shipment will come in a box instead of padded envelope, and you can fit up to 25 pounds of small pack and 44 pounds of bulk items. Check out the “Pound per box” page if you have questions on what can fit in our box options.
