If we are shipping to a FedEd hub, animals will be shipped to a FedEx Ship Center only, no other type of FedEx location can be used * Example is a print center
We ship weekly in the continental United States.
**We can ship to Hamm if the customer makes arrangements with DDI or another exporter directly. Shipping from our location to DDI or another source in California will be $65 regardless of how many animals. Contact us prior to making a purchase if you want to ship outside of the US.
Shipping is done Monday through Wednesday, with arrival the following morning.
Shipping and Temperature
Gecko Haven will ship when temperatures are between 34 and 83 degrees.
Weather will be monitored to make sure no storms are expected to come in that could delay the animal at the hub. We check that we have proper shipping temps on both ends of the process as well as the shipping hubs. Delays would put your new pet at great risk, we do our best to avoid any dangerous situations.
A heat pack, cold pack and/or a Phase 22 cryopack will be included if needed at no extra charge. Your gecko is kept as comfortable as possible on its way to its new home.
We can hold a gecko until shipping temps and weather conditions are good on both our end and the receiving end.
If you are on a payment plan, the payments will need to be completed within our one month agreement. Payment plans may not be available during summer due to high temp and inability to ship safely.
Shipping charges are never refunded.

If during the shipping process a gecko happens to lose their tail, compensation can not be made. This is something that happens on occasion. This will not affect the health of your gecko at all. Please contact us and we can offer care instructions.
Sex is not guaranteed unless the ad is listing that animal as male or female.
No pores seen or possible pores seen will not guarantee sex of that animal. We check for pores when the ad is initially placed. Once an animal is sold, pores are no longer checked. The animal is sold as advertised, M/F/No pores/Possible pores. If an animal is sold as not having pores and there is a delay for shipping due to weather or payment plan, once delivery time comes and it shows pores, there is no guarantee as it was not guaranteed or sold as female.
