You most certainly can. Every year 40 million Americans head out to campsites around the country to reconnect with nature, and with friends or family. What better way to spend time together cooking, talking and being away from it all? There are so many idealistic locations some of which are featured located around the country including popular locations in Maryland, Utah, Oregon and North Carolina. If sending to a friend or relative, you are going to need a reliable courier who can deliver door to door, much the same as if you had sold the tent or camping item online. Needless to say this has created a large marketplace of campers who are looking for camping bargains on eBay and other online market places like Facebook and Amazon. If you do find that perfect tent, ready to head out to the great outdoors, you are not going to want to pay a large sum of money to have it delivered, so make the most of our discounted courier services. Likewise with more and more music festivals every year, the need for tents and camping gear has gone through the roof, but large and heavy domestic US shipping can be expensive and can take a while to deliver, whilst you might just want to have it delivered in time for a weekend away.
We have a solution for those packages that you need urgently, the Overnight Domestic service. This is collected by from your home or work address by FedEx and is then delivered the next working day, so it is ideal if you want your camping supplies with you ASAP.

Economy delivery from one US zip code to another is also available to book on our site with the Ground shipping service, also collected and delivered by FedEx and with full tracking. This means it is very easy and cheap to ship packages containing items suited to camping which may be large and heavy.
So how much is it going to cost to courier a tent?
On the Ground shipping service the cost to ship boxes is heavily reduced, even for a relatively large four person tent. This is down to the volume of packages we send via the couriers listed on our shipping platform, meaning lower costs for our users.

When it comes to cost, quicker delivery obviously costs more so it there is no time constraints opt for the cheaper Ground services which have an advised delivery time of up to 5 working days to any location in the US, whilst if you need it in a hurry consider shipping via Overnight Express the next working day service. When it comes to tents there are the micro tents for people backpacking or mountain climbing to those semi-permanent ones that can seemingly house an entire extended family, so to get the best quote for your individual package add your shipment details into our shipping calculator quote engine.

A word about packaging.
Please do make sure that your tent or camping equipment is double boxed to avoid damage. Just putting it in bin bags would not help protect your tent in transit from any potential damage anywhere near as a much as secure solid cardboard boxes would. We have extensive packaging guidelines to help you send your items without any harm coming to them. Bubble wrap a can make all the difference when sending items as it supports them when being transported across the US, plus the less movement in your package the better.
