Direct Dispatch and Palletised items may take longer as stated on product pages
Unfortunately, our couriers don't work weekends or bank holidays, so we're unable to dispatch orders taken at these times. However, we do work hard to keep any further delays to a minimum.
Unfortunately we can not guarantee dispatch or delivery timeframes for items delivered from our warehouse or direct from our suppliers.
This is only possible for palletised items. A member of customer service team will call to arrange a suitable delivery date.
For other items, we will supply you with your tracking number to keep you informed on the process of your order.
Our automatic system will inform you once the order has been picked, packed and marked as dispatched. Unfortunately the tracking will only update once the order has been scanned by the courier into their network.
Some Fragile and oversize products, typically items weighing more than 30kg, such as aquariums over 85 Litres and some of our larger pond filters, cannot be sent by a standard courier service and therefore must be sent via a palletised delivery.
When purchasing a 'Palletised Delivery' product from us, please ensure to include a contact telephone number so a member of the Pond Planet Team can you call you to arrange a suitable delivery day. Please note the exclusion of a contact telephone number may delay the dispatch of your order.
Palletised Deliveries can only be arranged Monday-Friday and are normally made between 9am-5pm. Unfortunately we cannot specify a time of day that your delivery will arrive, so we advise that someone is present all day to receive it. Palletised Deliveries are a kerbside delivery only, the drivers in are unfortunately not permitted to assist with the pallet beyond the drop off, and cannot aid in bringing packages into the property. Depending on the size and weight of the aquarium or product, we advise that you have friends or family standing by to help you carry it into your home.
After purchase a member of our customer service team will call to explain the process and arrange with you a suitable delivery date. Please await our call before arranging any time off work or making plans to receive the delivery. Please be aware that once we have arranged a delivery date over the phone, there is a fee for cancellation.
