Yes – a number of companies in Maine can ship live lobsters to your door. If you’re ordering lobster for the first time, make sure to run a price comparison between companies. Some of our favorite companies include Lobster Anywhere, Crab Place, and Cameron’s Seafood. Companies will ship lobster in a variety of sizes to your door. Review their shipment prices before you place any lobster orders. When it comes to shipping, you will want a company that offers complete transparency. You will also want to avoid placing orders on certain days of the week. For example, ordering lobster toward the end of the week can result in a higher shipping fee.

Keep in mind that receiving the lobster is just as important as shipping it. If possible, you’ll want to have someone present to bring the lobster inside precisely when it arrives. Most companies insulate their lobster deliveries well. Nonetheless, you will want to store them in the refrigerator – or in the freezer for meat and tails – as soon as possible. Consider offering the delivery person instructions. You can leave a note on your door so the deliverer knows to place your lobster out of direct sunlight.
