If you aren’t home when a delivery is made, the shipping carrier will typically leave your order at your doorstep. We advise that you place all perishable items in the refrigerator immediately upon delivery, understanding that you are receiving temperature-sensitive ingredients. Depending on the season and temperature in your geographic area at the time of delivery, advanced planning may be needed to ensure immediate and proper storage of ingredients prior to consumption.
Depending on your area, you may be able to provide additional shipping instructions when creating your account (e.g., leaving the delivery at the back door or with a neighbor). Please note that while carriers may be able to honor these special delivery instructions, Blue Apron cannot guarantee that they’ll be accommodated and isn’t liable for any lost, stolen, or damaged deliveries that result from these requests.
