I have the opportunity to pick up a couple of nucs around 9 pm or the next morning around 10am. Either way I will pick up the nucs and deliver them to my farm immediatly after picking them up.

What's better?

Pick up the nucs at 9 pm Friday from the delivery truck, transport to the farm and unblock the nuc entrance beside it's hive during the late evening (11 pm) so I can move them into their permanent hive early the next morning


Allow the nucs to remain on the delivery truck overnight, pick them up around 10 am Saturday, move them to the farm and set them by their hive at noon. I guess I would move frames latter that afternoon or the next morning.
