However, our time-critical guaranteed team offers temperature-controlled service (contact our Solution Center at 1-866-ESTES4U (378-3748), Option 2, or email us at email@example.com). This special guaranteed service offers exclusive-use, temperature-control vehicles, which provide constant temperatures from -20 to 22 degrees Celsius (approximately -4 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) throughout North America (including Canada and Mexico as long as either the origin or destination is in the U.S.). An even more specialized service includes our guaranteed verified temperature control for which the temperature is constantly monitored and recorded all the way from the shipper to consignee.
