MTC Same-Day Delivery - The Ins and Outs of Delivering to your Missionary!

So you have a missionary, do you?  Whether it be your son, daughter, neighbor, friend or a distant relative's 7th cousin - we are here to help you!  We have all the insider's information on how to best send a package to the MTC (Missionary Training Center).  So let's start, shall we?

-There are many Missionary Training Center's (aka MTC) in the world; however, we only deliver to the one here in Provo, Utah.  (What is the Missionary Training Center?  Find out more here.)

-We offer same-day MTC deliveries Monday through Friday, except for major holidays (when the MTC mailroom is closed).  This service is done by (also known as Scoots, Inc).

Pretty legit, right?!

-If you get a package to us by 12:30 pm Monday-Friday, your missionary will get it that SAME DAY!  Doesn't that help ease your mind a little and maybe help him or her feel a tiny bit closer?  We know it's hard to have a loved one "all of a sudden" gone with hardly any contact.

-You can send all kinds of packages!  We don't require them to come packed all pretty in a box.  In fact, a grocery sack or just about anything will do!  If you don't have a box or sack, bring your items in and we will help you package it up and get it out.

-The MTC has some guidelines as to what they will allow in the packages.  They do not like helium balloons, perishable foods (especially smelly ones!), caffeinated drinks, or gum.  We do not necessarily enforce those rules - but leave it up to you to use your best judgement.  The MTC mailroom employees have been known to open up any packages that "stink" (like Cafe Rio food, etc).  Really though, most things are safe and the missionary's LOVE to get anything!

-We guarantee the package will get to the MTC that same day it is sent; however that does not always mean your missionary will receive the package that afternoon or evening.  The District Leader (DL) has the responsibility to retrieve mail for the elders/sisters in his district.  We have been told that due to classes and other things coming up - there have been times where the DL has not been able to get to the mailroom before it closes.

-Pioneer Party offers many fun and creative packages that are all READY TO SHIP to your missionary!  All you have to do is add a little note and it can be checked off your list.  Here is a link to some of the packages and gifts we offer.  You can even SHIP right from our website!

( A sample of one of our packages - a top seller - "The Official Greenie Package" comes with 2 of everything so the missionary can share with his or her companion.  Most of the package is goodies - 2 packs of mints, 2 packages of Skittles, etc. - but most important EVERYTHING is green in the package!  The tag on the outside says, "You may be young, you may be new - but you're ready to show what you can do.  Countless experiences are just around the bend, The shepherd's lost sheep you are called to tend.  So enjoy this package, every last green treat, Now get excited, you have lost souls to meet!" )

-The cost of shipping a package same-day to the MTC is all done by weight.  If the package is under 5 lbs,, we charge a $7.00 flat fee.  The price goes up if your package is over 5 lbs.

-The only information you will need to ship a package to your missionary is the Elder/Sister's name, their departure date (when they leave the MTC), and their Unit number (or Mailbox number).  This can all be found on the information the missionary receives when arriving at the MTC.  You can also call the MTC Mailroom and ask - 1-801-422-2602.

-If you live in Utah and your missionary would like to send some things home - we can help them do that!  Basically there will be a COD (cash on delivery) form in the MTC mailroom.  They will fill it out and it will get shipped to the drop off location of their choice.  We will then call you and let you know you have a package!  Prices vary to pick up depending upon weight.  Call to confirm please.  This service comes in handy when someone has over-packed and does not have enough room in his/her luggage to take everything out in the field.  It also has been helpful when a missionary is in the MTC during the winter time and has a coat - but is traveling somewhere warm and will not need a coat!

-Do you need a later drop off time?  Then check out this website for more information on different drop off locations.  Austin is our main man when it comes to delivering those packages!

-If you'd like to call us to set up a shipment, please don't hesitate!  We will do our best to help you.  801-768-3549

So let's make it easy and give you a few basics all at once:

-Packages don't have to be a in box - even a sack will do.
-Have the package to us by 12:30 pm any weekday (except major holidays)
-Cost is $7.00 for a package under 5 lbs.
-Have the missionary's name, departure date, and unit/mailbox number handy!
-Check out our website to get a package shipped - you can do it right now!

You are now an expert on how to send a package to the MTC!

(please note when placing an online order,  24 hours is needed for processing before the package will be sent)
