Live Arrival Guarantee

Our shipments of live product come with 100% Live Arrival Guarantee. This means that if your order is dead on arrival, we will replace the order at no charge, whatsoever. We do not normally offer refunds, but do offer them in special circumstances or if it does not appear that we can send more live product to you without significant risk to their lives. Our shipping and handling costs are none refundable. Our Live Arrival Guarantee is designed to cover shipping issue that are outside of your control, free of additional product or shipping charges.

Our Live Arrival Guarantee includes the following four conditions:

  1. Your shipment must be received on the first delivery attempt. If you happen to miss the delivery and the package is delayed a day or more as a result, we will not accept responsibility for any losses. It is your responsibility to check and follow the provided tracking number for delivery progress.

    You should be able to register with the carrier’s website/tracking service and receive shipping progress notifications by email. We highly recommend that you do.

  2. You must provide us with the correct delivery address and do not forward the parcel to another address, unless still delivered on the same day. Forwarding of packages results in an extra day or more in transit.

  3. In the unlikelihood of your order being a dead-on arrival, we require that you contact us and include at least 4 clear picture(s) of the product(s) in question, within two hours of the package delivery time.

Pictures can be sent to us by replying to the tracking email you received, or by sending them as an attachment in a new email.

    NOTE: We require at least four clear pictures of the content of your package, clearly demonstrating the issue.

  4. Any Live Arrival Guarantee claims (including pictures) must be brought to our attention via email or via our contact page within no more than 2 hours from the time the carrier dropped the package at your premises.

    Furthermore, note that it is your responsibility to check/comply with the biosecurity requirements in your state and ensure you have the proper permits (when/if required) to import certain live animal and/or plant products into your state.
