Do you have a minimum order?

We do not have specific minimums as the product mix, frequency of orders, and proximity to our warehouse can impact the economics of making a drop. Please consult your salesperson to discuss your specific situation.

Minimum order size for the general public is $100.00. Home delivery fees may apply based on order size.

How do I pick up my product?

We have a contact-free curbside pickup. Since you have already paid for your product online, come to our 344 Cliffwood Park St, Brea CA 92821 facility, park in the designated “curbside pick-up” spots, call our front desk at 714-255-8560, give them your name, order number, and the make and model of your car. We will handle the rest! If you have a long return drive, make sure you bring a cooler or cooler bag.

How does your home delivery work?

Home deliveries are made in our West Coast Prime Meats branded refrigerated vans by professional drivers wearing gloves and masks. The morning of your contact-free home delivery, we will give you an approximate delivery window via email. Please note this can change based on traffic conditions, road closures, or weather. If we are running late, our driver or customer service will let you know. Once we arrive, our driver will leave the product at your door, ring the bell, and stand back. Either through the window or door, we would like to make visual contact with somebody at the home to make sure you can quickly receive your product. If nobody is home, we will call or text and let you know the orders has been delivered.

How is my product packaged?

For food safety reasons, all product is cut fresh in our USDA facility and then frozen. Most items are individually sealed for easier transport and ultimate freshness when being thawed. All of our boxes are corrugated and made from recycled material. The boxes and vacuum seals bags are both recyclable.

How should I handle my product?

As far as your product goes, please check each package. Anything that you are not going to use in the next 2 – 3 days should be kept frozen. Product you are going to use in the next few days should be stored in the refrigerator. If you are planning on using a frozen product in the next few weeks, remove from the freezer to the refrigerator a day or two before you are going to use it and evaluate the thawing process from there.

What is your return policy?

If you receive the wrong product, or are unhappy with what you received, call us and explain the situation and we will issue you a return merchandise order number, and we will pick up and replace the product to your satisfaction.

Do you sell door-to-door?

No! Please be aware there are pretenders out there. West Coast Prime Meats only delivers pre-ordered meats in our branded refrigerated vans (like on our website), all of our drivers are uniformed, and will never by selling something extra or leftover!
