Our full year health guarantee covers the guaranteed live arrival of your tortoise(s). To qualify simply sign for the package on the first delivery attempt. I even still offer the guarantee for late arrivals, no more fine print like other breeder and retailers! Please keep in mind I cannot refund shipping costs for any reason but can refund the cost of tortoise(s) for DOA. Refunds are void if the wrong shipping address has been provided, the shipping carrier loses the package, or there is a delay longer than 72 hours
We ship our tortoises via FedEx Priority Overnight. Tortoises are scheduled to arrive by 10:30 AM in most cases depending on your zip code on the delivery date. All tortoise deliveries will require an adult signature so please make sure someone is there to accept the tortoise(s). I will schedule the shipping date prior to sending so I can determine what day works best for you to have your tort come. You will receive the tracking information the afternoon the tortoise has been sent. I will personally monitor the tortoises' status till he/she arrives safe and sound! Don't worry about having to call the shipping company and deal with constant transfers. If a problem does occur I will deal with the shipper myself and get everything resolved while maintaining constant communication with you so you know what is going on.
We ship throughout the US (excluding Hawaii).
The priority overnight shipping is $55 shipped directly to your door. Shipping prices may vary for shipments over 4 tortoises. Arizona shipping addresses receive priority overnight shipping for $25, please email me to receive this discount.
Don't like my shipping quote, think you can beat it? You are more than welcome to book the shipment yourself and email us the shipping label! I don't make any money on shipping, in fact I lose money on every shipment because I do not charge for the insurance, shipping supplies, or the delivery signature. In order to qualify for any of our guarantees the tortoise must be sent as follows:
FedEx Priority Overnight
Insurance on the cost of the package
Delivery Signature Required
**Adult shipping varies, please contact for shipping quotes**
**Cold weather shipping prices may be higher than than the flat rate due to use of larger, insulated boxes**
Large Tortoise Shipping
Our larger tortoises are sent via the airlines (same day delivery) to be picked up at your nearest airport. The fee for this is in the range of $95 - $200 depending on the location and size of the tortoise. Contact me for details and a quote.
Local Arizona Shipping
Due to time constraints I am no longer offering local pickups for my hatchlings. Arizona residents will receive discounted priority overnight shipping at a cost of $25. Please email me to receive this discount.
