I'm taking a weekend trip to Colorado at the beginning of September and I'm wondering if I can mail dialysis solution.  I am too late to have Baxter deliver it and I remember that when I first started on PD, UPS would deliver my boxes since I had very small orders.  Is shipping possible?  I am going to be gone about 4 days and traveling by myself so I won't have anyone to help me with the boxes (which I can't lift myself). 

Any help on this matter would be most appreciated!

I get dialysate from NxStage via UPS and/or courier.  Each box contains 2 - 5 litre bags.  :twocents;

I don't know why you couldn't mail it there.  See if you can arrange a home pick up so you don't have to lug everything to a distribution center.

I live across the street from a UPS store so it's no problem to have my SO help me mail out a box or two.  I'll have to do some research and double check that it's ok, but I can't think of a reason why not.  Thanks for the help!

yes but its better if you get the address of where you will be even if its a hotel ...call Baxter and give them address as well as phone and dates they will ship it for you.. if hotel they can keep it at desk for your arrival.. it is great baxter will send it any where if it is a small amount they will fed ex it for you.. you can do this with family home or anywhere it is great ..this really helps  ... make sure you tell your unit when you are leaving they can give you conntact info for a unit where you will be just in case..have a great trip...rememberits good for 2 years so if you have kids or someone you can send someone to there home and they can store it in a closet or something till you arrive..dont forget to take at least an extra day of supplies just in case as well as some manuals in case of power outage or machine malfunction
