BLUE STREAK ONLINE UPDATE

We are pleased to announce a recent enhancement to our Blue Streak online order entry system. Now, you can choose a “time frame” or window for your pick up and another “time frame” or window for your delivery. This enhancement will provide clarity and help us ensure we are meeting your expectations. When you place an order online, there will be a “default” time frame created based on when you place the order. Please be sure to review that information prior to placing the order and make any adjustments to those times as necessary. (For example, if you place an order at 10:00 AM, but the item(s) won’t actually be ready until noon, please be sure to change the default ready time from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. The default delivery time will adjust automatically based on the pick-up time.)

Bear in mind that a larger time frame to complete the pick up and delivery will make it easier for us to provide the excellent service you have come to expect from Blue Streak.

Please be sure to take advantage of this online order entry system to ensure that we receive the all of the necessary information regarding your delivery.

FUEL SURCHARGE TO DECREASE IN APRIL

Considering the decrease in fuel prices throughout Florida in March, Blue Streak’s fuel surcharge will decrease to 11.5% for April. Despite this, our fuel surcharge continues to be among the lowest in the region.

How it’s calculated: If the average price* of regular, unleaded fuel is above $1.79 during the last week of any given month, the surcharge will be in effect on the first day of the following month.

*as reported for the state of Florida, regular gas, all formulations, on the United States Department of Energy website: US Department of Energy
