We offer 2 types of shipping for our Discus. The reason we only use these 2 services is that they have been tried and tested and been successful in transferring Live Discus to our customers.
For ease, we have integrated the shipping options available at Check Out for you. You can obtain an estimate from the calculator and it will automatically calculate the weight and shipping charges.
Toll Priority Door to Door Overnight Service – As this is a next day delivery service and a door to door courier service, we do not offer DOA (Dead on Arrival) coverage and customers who choose this option need to agree to the risk they are taking when transporting live fish. Fish dying or sick on arrival due to transport delays will not be compensated or refunded.
Air Freight via Toll Air Express or Virgin/Qantas Australia – DOA COVERAGE SERVICE ONLY
This service is a same day/next day airline service as freight from Airport to Airport. This is a guaranteed service and will require you to pick up the parcel at the airport. We will arrange suitable time with you on shipment arrival at your closest airport and we provide you with an AWB (Air WayBill) number which you use to collect your fish. DOA replacements ensures replacement fish are free, however, customers are required to pay for shipping costs again as freight is an external 3rd party costs from OZ Discus.
