We stock one of the biggest ranges of pond, aquarium, reptile, and pet products in the UK, and have huge volumes of products in stock all the time at our three Manchester fulfilment centres.
To help keep delivery costs low, we heavily subsidise the costs to make it cheaper to shop with us. In most cases, our products are available for 1-2 day delivery and we can get them to most UK destinations at a very competitive price.
Delivery costs start at just £3.99 for smaller packets and rise to £5.99 for larger parcels. However, surcharges do apply to a small percentage of more remote postcodes where couriers charge significantly more for delivery.

How much is delivery?
Delivery starts at just £3.99 for small items and costs £5.99 for larger items. Most orders over £79 are shipped for free, but surcharges do apply to some postcodes.
How long does delivery take?
In-stock items ordered before 1 pm are despatched on a 1-2 day service. Special order and direct delivery items take longer.
Why is the courier saying they don't have my parcel?
Our system will let you know once the order has been despatched and passed to the courier, however, at busy times it can take the courier a while to update the status message.
Can I select a specific delivery date or time?
Yes, for palletised items the courier will contact you to arrange delivery. For all other items, Yodel will supply you with your tracking number and a two hour delivery time slot on day of delivery.
What should I do if my order is delayed?
Most orders arrive within 1-2 working days. Our couriers will usually email or text the delivery details so you can track your order. If you're unable to find this, please contact us and we can track it for you.
How is livefood delivered?
Our livefood orders are sent from our livefood distributor to any UK mainland address via a next-day delivery service. This means that any order you place containing livefood and other items will arrive in multiple packages, one from our warehouse and one from our livefood distributor. Our livefood provider despatches packages Monday to Thursday to avoid livefood being in transit over the weekend.
Do you charge extra for certain postcodes?
Unfortunately, our couriers charge us significantly more to send to certain locations, so there is a small additional cost for some locations.
These include Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, the Scilly and the Channel Islands, and the Scottish Highlands. Postcodes: AB30-56, IV, HS, KA27-28, PA20-49, PA60-78, PH17-26, PH30-50, ZE, IM, BT, TR21-25.
Do you process orders on bank holidays?
Unfortunately, our couriers don't work on weekends or bank holidays, so we're unable to despatch orders taken at these times. However, we do work hard to keep any further delays to a minimum.
How is frozen food delivered?
We can send frozen foods to any UK mainland address via a premium courier service, this costs an additional £9.99 and is not covered under our free delivery offer. Frozen foods are only despatched Monday to Thursday, to avoid being in transit over the weekend and arriving defrosted.
Are delivery times guaranteed?
We cannot guarantee despatch times for items delivered from our warehouses or direct from suppliers.
