There are two ways in which you can receive your tortoise;
Collection – The best way to receive your tortoise if you can travel. This way you are able to choose your own tortoise from a select few and return home the same day with your new family member. You will also be able to speak to a member of staff in person, in case you still have questions. Once an order has been placed we will contact you to arrange an appointment for collection.
Please bear in mind that we are not a shop, we are a warehouse unit and will not have tortoises onsite if there are no appointments booked in. We are also upstairs, so please let us know if you struggle with stairs.
Delivery – Don’t worry if you are unable to collect your tortoise yourself, you can have your new addition delivered to an address of your choice instead. Our Livestock Courier collects from us every Wednesday and delivers every Thursday. Once an order has been placed we will contact you to arrange the delivery. You need to have spoken to us about your preferred delivery date by 10:30am on the Tuesday prior to the Thursday you require. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
