CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID

**In cases where shipping is less than 150 miles and will be picked up within 24 hours of delivery, some agents may agree to transport perishables as long as are properly packed and require no type of in-transit service.
NOTE: All refrigerators and freezers should be completely empty. The doors of these appliances should remain open for at last 24 hours in advance of loading and shipping. This will ample time for drying and prevent mold growth.
