For those who will be renting or moving in to their beach house on Fire Island this summer, the Fire Island Ferries freight department will be extremely helpful in this process. There are many benefits that a credit card account with the freight department has. Read on for information directly from the Fire Island Ferries freight department that highlight their services that will be beneficial to use throughout your stay on Fire Island.
If you plan on ordering beverages or liquor from the mainland or plan on ordering items online to be delivered to the
dock, through the Fire Island Ferries freight department, visit https://fireislandfreight.azurewebsites.net/ and set up an account with them that you can add a credit card to. This will make the pick-up of these items go a bit more smoothly and, for some towns, prevent the chance of the boat bringing these items back to Bay Shore if you are not on the dock to pay the freight
charge when the boat is in town.
If ordering items online, please use the following format when filling in the shipping address:
Name: Your first AND last name
Address 1: 99 Maple Avenue
Address 2: Fire Island town AND your freight account number
Town: Bay Shore
The account that you set up will also send a notification the morning that your freight is being shipped (usually around
10:00 am) to the email address on file, allow you to see a history of your shipments and track the freight boat via a

For next day delivery, you can bring your items to the Bay Shore freight house located in the Fire Island Ferries, Inc. main
