I usually call a neighbor. Put a note on your door to ask the delivery man to deliver to the house next door. Lol, I do that so many times that my neighbors told me I don't have to ask them if they are available cause they're available everyday. Me and my dad are always ordering stuff online. We get about 20 or so packages a month so yea. You can put a note on your door to ask UPS, Fedex, USPS, and DHL to deliver to the house next door or if you have a cooler, you can always ask the delivery man to put the package into the cooler but I doubt the cooler would do any good.

If you can buy several heat packs, then set out the cooler each morning and activate a heat pack, wrapped in a towel. Put the lid on the cooler with the note to the delivery person. PUT PACKAGE IN HERE, thanks :-)
If the shrimp arrive, the cooler will be warm from the heat pack, but the towel will not allow the plastic bag of shrimp to contact the heat pack, so it should gently warm them without getting too hot.
If they do not arrive, you have wasted that heat pack, use a new the next day...
