Hi,
I'm looking for a (small) soaking bathtub, but I can't figure out how to get one on St Thomas. We are arriving on 8/15, and a contractor is working on the bathroom now. Any ideas: 1) who might have one in stock (nothing in Home Depot or Interiors) 2) if someone has one they want to sell? Or 3) what shipping company people use to get something from the mainland to STT? (We found a tub at Home Depot online, but doesn't ship to USVI. Is there a way around this, like a 3rd party shipper?)

Thanks!

Tia

Home Depot will ship to your freight Forwarder in Miami...try STT Cargo.

I just shipped a big order of low voltage outdoor lighting that way as the local store didn't have to quantity I needed.

Contact a Home Depot or Lowes in Florida. Find a store that is near the dock/depot for either VI Cargo or other freight forwarder. The stores in Florida are used to delivering goods directly to these locations. Some stores even have signs advertising this service.

Since you're on St. Thomas, go with STT Cargo a sister company of Paradise Freight on STX. VI Cargo doesn't have an office on STT as far as I know.

you could check the HD's in San Juan. We have gotten things from them and they deliver right to the dock for the ship that leaves to go to STT and STX. If they have stock you get it pretty quickly and the shipping is less on a shorter trip.
