The tortoises ship 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 a 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 tortoise 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.

The 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.
Live animals can only safely be shipped Monday - Wednesday. This means that the only possible delivery days are Tuesday - Thursday. I will schedule a shipping date with you via email when you place your order. No tortoises will ever be sent without the customers approval so please provide an accurate email address for shipping communication. If you have work and are not available to sign for a tortoise during the week I can also have it sent to your nearest FedEx hub for pick up when you are available.
I can ship anywhere in the US excluding Hawaii.
Large tortoises are shipped through Southwest Cargo. This shipping is same day, usually only 2-5 hours in transit depending on your location.
