NEW! Tortoise Table Accessory Packs

By: Natalie

We're excited to showcase our new products. Due to numerous requests, we have put together a package just for accessories. This accessory pack contains all the essentials you need for your tortoise table. This way, if you are buying a tortoise from us and a table from elsewhere, or building your own, you can still fill your table with our top quality products and our tortoise package style discounts. But don't forget, the discounts get bigger, as the package does, so the savings in our tortoise packages will always be greater, not just than other packages on our site, but than any other tortoise outlet online.

Beware of Facebook Sellers

Beware of Facebook Sellers

By: Natalie

It has been brought to our attention that there is a Facebook page using our name and reputation to sell their tortoises. We want all to be aware that we do not work in conjunction with any other businesses, pages or groups. You will only ever receive replies from Gemma or Natalie through this page only, our official Twitter page and of course, through emails. You will never be forwarded a mobile number to contact someone else for collection, nor will anyone but Walkers European Transport deliver your tortoise. We will always send you to www.thetortoiseshop.com to place your order and will never request personal details or order numbers through Facebook.

Postal Orders

By: Natalie

Due to recent cuts within the company, we are now having to take the post to the nearest post office personally, on foot. This means that where we could normally put 1 or 2 postal items into a sack and have them picked up on our daily collection, we are now going to wait until we have filled a sack or the end of the week before making the trip. Postal orders may only be taken to the post office once a week, Friday. During busy periods, we will take post to the post office on a daily basis, if need be.
