Courier delivery service (for dry good, equipment and supplies) is provided at a cost effective flat rate of £3.50. Standard delivery is 2-4 working days.
Courier deliveries can be made nationwide (United Kingdom mainland). Orders placed before 4pm Monday-Friday are typically dispatched for delivery the following day. With regret, weekend delivery cannot be specified under our courier’s terms. We reserve the right to postpone dispatch or delivery (e.g. in the event of adverse weather conditions); in this event customers will be notified by email.
Licensed Animal Courier
Livestock orders will require a licensed animal courier to transport the animal(s) to your home.
Phelsuma Farm can arrange the animal courier, in which case we will normally use Cold Blooded Movements (facebook.com/coldbloodedmovements/) who have delivered a fantastic service to many Phelsuma Farm customers.
Licensed animal courier prices: Email us with your postcode for a quote, but typically the prices are £45-£50 England and Wales, £75-£80 Scotland, depending on location.
The courier price is for one delivery, not per animal, so the delivery cost is more cost effective if you are purchasing multiple animals from Phelsuma Farm. There are courier runs each month. Once the courier fee is paid the booking can be confirmed. Your delivery day and 2 hour time slot will be sent to you 5-7 days before the start of the run. You will need to be available to receive the delivery.
