If you are going to leave it in a 120 degree car unprotected, you've got minutes. If you have it packed in ice in a cooler, you've got hours. If I knew that I was going to pick up frozen, I would carry a cooler.

More than once I have stopped at the dollar store and bought a styrofoam cooler to carry unexpected perishable purchases.

If you explain why you were speeding, the highway cop will probably let you go with just a warning to slow down, you're probably gonna cook 'em as soon as you get home anyway.

Until they're thawed out & spoiled?

Seriously, it depends on how long it is from point of origin to point of destination. But if you're concerned, bring a cooler or some plastic bags & ice packs along.

That said, I frequently shop at an upscale market that's about 40 minutes away & often buy fresh live seafood & frozen dim sum, pierogies, etc. Everything arrives home in tip-top shape.

How does ordering online make it better? You still have to pick it up & bring it home.

So then if you have that option, I'm confused by the original question.
