Shipping Policy

Home - Shipping Policy

At Miami Reptile Company your order will be processed within 1-2 business days (excluding holidays) from purchase.

Note: Our shipping days are Monday – Wednesday and NEVER include Thursday – Sunday. If temperatures at the FedEx hub located in Memphis, TN or the destination zip code are under (Overnight Low) 32°F or over 99°F we will not ship as it is not safe for the animals. We will ship on the next available shipping day that temperatures allow.

Note: We do not ship outside of the United States or to the following: Hawaii, Puerto Rico, P.O. Boxes, APOs, or FPOs.

Live Animal Shipping

Note: FedEx does not require a signature to leave the package. Miami Reptile Company is not responsible for any package once it has been tendered to FedEx. If you are not going to be available to receive the package, we recommend adding a specific date to the order notes to receive it or choose the FedEx to hold for pickup option.

Live animals purchased by 5:00 pm Eastern Monday – Wednesday will be shipped the same day excluding holidays.

All live animals ship Mon-Wed for a flat rate of $49.99 via FedEx overnight service with early morning arrival.

We offer a hold for pickup option that can be selected during checkout. Simply check the box next to “Hold Animals for Pickup at FedEx Location!” You will then be able to add your zip code and search for the closest location that accepts this package type. Once you choose the location you want the Order Notes will populate “Hold Animals for Pickup at FedEx Location” Along with the closest pickup location based on the location you chose. Live animal orders ship business days Monday through Wednesday except for holidays and weather-related events. Note: Weather conditions are taken into consideration both for the hub as well as the final destination to determine if animals will be shipped.
