Drop Ship Services

Save money. Save our planet.

As award coordinators and event planners rise to the challenge of managing award events and programs during the pandemic, one smart step in the process is to drop ship awards directly to recipients.  Many of our customers have been drop shipping awards for years.

Drop shipping your awards is simple.

After you've chosen your awards and identified your honorees, ask each honoree for a shipping address (at the moment, these are very likely home addresses).  Provide us with the address information and we'll ship directly to your award recipients.

Drop shipping will save you money.

We charge a standard fee for drop shipments ($6 domestic and $16 international), plus actual shipping costs (and import costs if applicable). Import fees vary greatly from country to country.  If you can provide us with information regarding the destinations for your awards, we can give you some idea of what the import fees will be. 

We are also happy to send all the awards to you so that you can drop ship them yourself.  However, unless you routinely ship a lot of packages and have packaging materials on hand, you'll find that there are a number of disadvantages to shipping your own awards.


Preparing Awards for Drop Shipments at Rivanna

Drop shipping is easier on the planet.

You can minimize the climate impacts of shipping awards by drop shipping directly to honorees rather than having a shipment sent to you and then a second shipment sent to recipients. Since we ship all awards using UPS Carbon Neutral, you can rest assured that the environmental impact of your shipment has been offset. As a bonus, each award shipment has a UPS Carbon Neutral sticker.  Our customers tell us that award recipients love this attention to detail!

Add a special touch

Our customers often include a personal note or card with each award that they drop ship. Handwritten notes can be shipped to us prior to award distribution, and we're happy to print card inserts at our shop or have them professionally printed (fees apply).  Just let us know what you need.
