Purchasing Queen Help!!!

Hello fellow Ant Keepers,
I've been waiting on getting a Iridomeryx Purperus Queen with workers, however I've only just found one available. Unfortunately I'm currently away from home for a week, I was thinking of purchasing the queen/workers and leaving at the post. Would the queen be fine being left at the post for a week or should I just wait and hope the offer is still available? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers ShadowNova

Hello Fellow Ant Keepers,
I've since spoken to the seller and have arranged for a later dispatch. I've purchased an Iridomeryx Queen with 1-10 workers. Just curious but would it be fine directly transferring them to a small Y-tong nest set-up? Would they comfortably transferring the brood and eggs without stress? Any help is always appreciated.

Cheers, ShadowNova
