We are a small family operated business involving live fish and therefore can only be shipped on certain days which is usually the first business day of the week. In most circumstances please allow up to 7 business days for your order to be completed. We will do our best to make sure you get your order as quickly as possible and do our very best to complete orders well before the scheduled time frame although during the busy seasons (Christmas) our 7 day policy applies in most cases. If your order is urgent, please contact us prior to ordering to discuss your options.
Our products are either sent via Australia Post or via courier, depending on your location. All orders are sent in either boxes, satchels or padded bags using plenty of packaging to ensure your order arrives safely. Items such as live fish will be sent using live fish transport bags then placed inside cooler boxes which are the ideal packaging for such precious items.
We are based in Kallangur, Brisbane Queensland and all orders will be shipped from our address here. Please allow up to 10 days for delivery. If you need your item sooner - please contact us PRIOR to ordering.
We currently only ship our products within Australia.
Your privacy is important to us. All information collected is only used for the purpose of processing your order. We will never give out or sell any of your information to a third party, or record any transaction details.
The Guppy Shed does not accept exchanges if you change your mind.
All live fish orders will be sent only on Mondays & Tuesdays. This allows your order to get to you during a working week day to avoid being held in a postal storage facility over a weekend which can cause longer delays and be detrimental to the health of your fish.
When purchasing live fish you are accepting that these are a very delicate and perishable item because they are living creatures which comes with great risk if being sent through the post so we do recommend using the express post option which is usually delivered within 3 days and decreases any chances of stress or losses. At The Guppy Shed we take extreme care at packing our orders to ensure they can handle the conditions of being in a parcel for short periods of time (up to 5 days the most) so if you do chose to purchase through us please note that even though we do our very best to ensure their safety we cannot guarantee once they leave our establishment that they won't be damaged or lost because once they are in the hands of a third party service it is beyond our control. So when ordering please be fully aware of this and if concerned please message us prior to ordering.
