arranging your live fish delivery
Once we have received your order we will email you to arrange a specified delivery date so that you can arrange for someone to be there to receive the order. Please note our couriers will only deliver live fish to the delivery address provided by the customer. They cannot leave them with a neighbour if no one is in and they cannot leave them safe. If the couriers attempt to deliver and no one is in to receive them the order may be returned to New Forest Koi in which case you may have to pay the delivery charge again to receive the order.
Typical shipping times for live fish orders:
- Order received between 12pm Tuesday and 12pm Wednesday - Delivery on Thursday / Friday
- Order received between 12pm Wednesday and 12pm Thursday - Delivery on Friday / Following Wednesday
- Order received between 12pm Thursday and 12pm Tuesday - Delivery on following Wednesday / Thursday
- No Wednesday delivery available following a bank holiday Monday.
Please note this is just a rough guide to delivery times and some orders particularly for small koi may take longer to prepare. Koi fry orders from May - July usually take longer to send out and you will be informed of the available delivery days prior to ordering. If you have any requests for a specific delivery date please let us know as soon as possible.
SHIPPING LIVE FISH
Our koi are sent out on an overnight delivery service and will usually be with you within 24 hours of packing. For example if you are expecting a delivery on Wednesday, your koi will be bagged and boxed up on the Tuesday morning, collected by the couriers Tuesday afternoon and then delivered to you on Wednesday morning. The fish will be double bagged, with pure oxygen, and boxed. We deliberately set low figures as to the maximum numbers of fish in a bag to ensure the minimum possible stress on the fish. All orders packed with enough oxygen to travel for a minimum of 48 hours.
Once your order has been dispatched you will receive a confirmation email from us with your consignment number. Using your consignment number and postcode you should be able to track the delivery here.
