There are four private shipping services available on Provo, one in Grand Turk: FedEx, UPS, DHL, and IBC. Though expensive, this method is the only reliable way to send something to or from the islands. The service getting it to and from the islands is consistent, but direct delivery to and from homes and businesses throughout the islands may be a problem. Visitors are advised to pick up packages at the offices of FedEx and UPS, unless they’re staying at a major resort.
