On US holidays in 2023, FedEx offices and services will be closed on major holidays such as Independence Day, Labor Day, Christmas Day, and Thanksgiving Day. However, exceptions may apply on certain occasions. For example, on New Year’s Day (January 1st), FedEx Express will be closed, but FedEx Ground and Home Delivery will still have standard service. Furthermore, on April 15, December 22nd, and December 30th, FedEx Freight will be open with regular pickup and delivery operations and a modified linehaul schedule. The United States Postal Service (USPS) will not deliver mail on January 1st and 2nd, 2023. Therefore, planning and considering potential service changes when scheduling shipments or deliveries is vital.

 

Does FedEx offer a money-back guarantee on FedEx holiday 2023?

FedEx offers a money-back guarantee for select services for U.S. domestic and export shipments. This, effective from Jan. 3, 2023, covers FedEx Express services. However, there are exceptions to this guarantee, such as for shipments scheduled for delivery before Christmas Day or from November 1, 2021, to January 16, 2022. Additionally, the guarantee does not apply to all ground and express packages, and the company announced a limited reinstatement of the money-back guarantee on April 6, 2021. FedEx offers a 100% refund on shipping fees if deliveries arrive later than their scheduled time.

 

FedEx Ground and FedEx Home Delivery

FedEx Ground and Home Delivery are separate divisions of FedEx, with different services. FedEx Ground is mainly used for commercial shipping, while FedEx Home Delivery is designed for residential deliveries.

Both services deliver packages to residential locations faster than UPS Ground.

FedEx Home Delivery will charge an extra residential surcharge of $3.80 per package on every shipment. Recently,

FedEx Ground has launched a year-round Sunday delivery service for most of the U.S. for its residential FedEx Home Delivery service.

Overall, both services offer reliable and fast delivery times, so customers can choose which works best for their needs.

Insurance costs may vary, and the company does not provide coverage for shipments sent through FedEx Same Day Freight. For domestic shipments, FedEx insurance covers goods with a declared value of up to $100,000, while international shipments are insured up to $25,000. For U.S.-only freight shipments, FedEx Dom Freight, Forward Air, and A Due Pyle all provide insurance coverage up to $50,000 with a rate of $1.25, $1.35, and $1.35, respectively.

FedEx Domestic Shipping Insurance

FedEx offers an excellent insurance option for its customers who send domestic shipments. They provide coverage up to $100 for free, and an additional charge will be applied for any additional insurance needs. The rates for FedEx domestic shipping insurance vary depending on the value of the shipment. For example, packages valued up to $100 have no charge, while packages valued up to $300 have a fee of $3. Each additional $100 of coverage is typically charged at $1.25. To provide even more protection, FedEx encourages customers to transfer the risk of their shipments to an approved third-party insurer. With all these options available, customers can rest assured that their package is well-protected during transit.

 

What are FedEx holiday shipping Restrictions, and What do You Need to Know?

FedEx offers reliable shipping services throughout the holidays, including on Christmas Day. Customers can expect standard deliveries and pickup services on Good Friday 2022. However, retailers should be aware that there may be package pickup limits during this time due to the pandemic-fueled holiday season.

To avoid this, retailers can create a shipping label and hold the package at a FedEx location. Additionally, customers should be aware of an upcoming General Rate Increase (GRI), which could affect their shipping costs.

Finally, it is essential to note that FedEx offers weekend delivery to most U.S. addresses. Planning early and taking advantage of the 2023 holiday service schedule is crucial to ensure your shipping needs are met during the holidays.

 

FedEx holiday shipping Restrictions

FedEx is committed to ensuring your shipments arrive on time and in perfect condition during the holidays. On December 26, FedEx Freight is open only for prearranged pickup and delivery shipments.

Depending on the origin location, customers have until December 20 for Express Saver or FedEx three-day freight services for Christmas delivery and until December 23 for Fed-Ex two-day and UPS services.

FedEx length restrictions are up to 108 inches (274 cm) and 130 inches (330 cm) in length and girth, although some items may still be shipped if they are restricted. Please allow extra transit days for delivery outside of major cities to ensure that your goods arrive in time for the holidays.
