Aquariums & Freight Shipments

Shipping Instructions for Delivery: Always check the shipment prior to signing for it. It is recommended to take your package out of its container regardless of the state of the box. examine it thoroughly and if damaged, snap photos and take notes of the damages in the receipt for delivery or repackage the item and refuse delivery. If you accept the delivery receipt, it’s a legally binding contract which states that you have accepted the item in the condition it was received. If the box isn’t open at the time the package is made, it’s ideal to mention “possible hidden damaged” no matter the state that is present in the box(es). This is crucial since once you’ve accepted your delivery; you are responsible to ensure it’s damaged. When you sign for your delivery, you confirm that you have received the tank with no damage and accept the tank in its present state.

Aquariums can be returned (new aquariums, unopened, or refused tanks only) however the buyer will be charged for the entire cost of returning an aquarium, including the freight shipping cost and the freight charge for returning along with a restocking cost. The price typically ranges between $50 to $1500 depending on the item you buy, and where you are delivering it to.
