How Axolotls Are Shipped

Axolotls are shipped using a courier. Shipments can only be sent out Monday through Wednesday to avoid them being held in a facility over the weekend due to courier delays. You may request to send the package out on a day that is not between Monday through Wednesday. Note that this will void our DOA policy. When the package arrives, the courier will bring the package directly to your door for you to sign. If by chance you miss the courier, the package will be brought back to the closest post office for you to pick up. You must then pick up the package with a valid piece of government ID. Please ensure you are checking the tracking provided to ensure you are available when the courier arrives.

On the occurrence of DOA, you must contact us within the first hour of arrival (Confirmation by the delivery time provided by the courier) with pictures or videos verifying that the Axolotl is deceased. We may not be available to reply instantly but as long as the email, voicemail, or text message timestamp is within the first hour of your delivery confirmation time you are covered. The covered amount will be put on a store credit which can be used to immediately replace the Axolotls or saved and used at a later  date. The cost of shipping is not covered and will need to be repaid at the invoiced cost. Someone must be available to sign for the package on the first delivery attempt made by the courier.
