Small Deliveries. Big Results.

Houston’s Medical Center is one of the largest medical providers in the United States, and the source of several huge advances in medical technology and research. But many of the items that make the biggest differences in people’s lives are in fact quite small.

Tiny, delicate items like artificial heart valves and vials containing amniotic fluid can mean the difference between life and death. Organs for transplant are also small in comparison to the miracles they make possible.

For people who were born deaf, cochlear implants can make the most dramatic difference. By storing and delivering cochlear implants, Hot Shot Delivery makes moments like this possible:

Whether your shipping needs involve biological materials or essential documents, Hot Shot is here to deliver the small things that make a big difference to your business.

What Could You Fit in Our Warehouse?

Those of you from the Reading Rainbow generation may remember a book called How Much Is a Million?, which challenged elementary-schoolers to visualize a million stars, goldfish, kids and more.

More Than Just Flowers and Candy

Happy Valentine’s Day! If that sentence caught you off guard, there’s good news: It’s not too late to make your sweetheart’s day. Hot Shot is no stranger to last-minute delivery requests for Godiva chocolates, red roses and other traditional Valentine’s Day items. But why not do something a bit more unique? Here are some outside-the-box Valentine’s Day gift ideas that can still be delivered in time.


  • Not every honey has a sweet tooth. Instead of chocolates, why not send over a basket of fresh fruit from the local market?
  • Is your Valentine under the weather? Send him or her a care package of tea, chicken soup and tissues. Even these everyday items can be romantic when hand-delivered.
  • Your Valentine’s gift should be given today, but it can be enjoyed later. Surprise your special someone with a gift certificate to one of their favorite stores.
  • Add the element of surprise. Pretend you’ve totally forgotten to make plans for a Valentine’s Day dinner — then open the door for a delicious delivery from your favorite restaurant.

Hot Shot can arrange the logistics of even complex Valentine’s Day deliveries. Call 713.869.7575 from the comfort of your home or office, and avoid being in the dog house later.
