We also offer Southwest Cargo as a shipping option at checkout for those that are familiar with this specialized shipping method.

  • The safest way to transport delicate livestock is through Airline Cargo Freight.
  • The boxes are placed on a pallet, in a generally temperature controlled environment, and only moved upright using a forklift.
  • Using Cargo, we will ship collect, so you pay for your boxes shipping cost at pick up from your local airport.
  • If you have never shipped cargo before, please reach out to us for additional information, and please include your desired airport for arrival when placing the order so we can start researching flight options before we reach out to schedule.
  • We will never send out a Cargo shipment without first touching base and confirming the estimated arrival time.

Splitting orders into packages

Online orders may be "split" into multiple "packages", or separate shipments, based on the type of shipping that any given product requires.

This occurs when some items in an order require specialized and or overnight shipping (such as livestock or perishable goods), while other items can be shipped according to your preferences and budget.

Customers are required to choose a shipping method for each package if an order has been split into packages.

FAQ's

How do you package livestock for shipping - how do you ensure it's safety

All coral is shipped in styrofoam insulated boxes appropriately sized for your order, with heat or ice packs as necessary based on the weather.  We have a 99%+ survival rate shipping corals and have been doing it for decades!

How long will it take for livestock to arrive

Orders placed by 5pm will ship out the following shipping Day (FedEx & UPS shipments go out Monday through Friday for overnight delivery), but you can always pick your shipping/arrival day by simply adding the desired shipping schedule info in the comments on your order.  There are things that happen that prevent us from making shipments on some days; Import Schedules, Staffing Issues, etc, it is livestock, so there is only a small window each day for packing and shipping each day that we’re comfortable with so as not to prolong the experience for your livestock, we will always reach out ahead of time to coordinate any changes to schedule and do our best to not let it happen.

What is the Cart Amount Shipping Discount threshold

This is the amount you need to spend to qualify for discounted or free flat-rate shipping on your order.

This threshold amount depends on the location in the US the order will be shipped to.

Bonus – Having a Detroit Reef club Membership reduces this amount, so you can spend less to receive a discounted or free flat-rate shipping.
