    If you ordered them potted you could try and get a neighbor to pick them up and look after them for you. They're easy enough to look after that he/she shouldn't have too much trouble looking after them for a few days

    Depending on how it got shipped, if the shipper (USPS, UPS, etc.) has a climate-controlled warehouse, you can just tell them to hold your package for you to pick it up at their facility when you get back. Plants spending a week in a box won't usually kill them unless they were already weak/sick to start out with.

    Honestly I wouldn't be that worried. I've had plants that were a week in transit bare-root and they survived.

    It sounds like you cannot avoid keeping them in the packaging for a few days. I would not give it another thought until you get back. Bare root in sphagnum moss is good way to keep them alive for that short period of time.
