Default Ship Your Aquatics.com

Hey Guys, I thought I'd pass on a link to a great company.


http://www.shipyouraquatics.com


This is a shipping company that has the shipping waiver for Fed Ex and they essentially sublet their ability to ship to you.

This would come into handy when you don't live near a major airport for Air Cargo...or if USPS doesn't offer Overnight service to you destination.

They offer discounted rates off Fed Ex retail and volume discounts.

They also have another sister company called Shipyourreptiles.com and that is where I know them from. (my other hobby)

They are HIGHLY reputable and their customer service is second to none. When you call them, they answer the phone. When you email them they respond immediately and make the process extremely smooth and painless.

Not to mention their FAQ section would be a helpful read for anyone not familiar with shipping live animals. They have a great website.

Basically, with this company, you get to now ship Fed Ex as if you have an aquatics waiver (hard to get)... and you get to ship at a lower than retail rate.


One last thing, the reason I speak so highly of them is that over in the reptile community that I participate in, there was an untimely death of an iconic member of the community. Eventually it became time for that persons animals to be auctioned/ sold and distributed and Shipyourreptiles.com stepped up and kinda endorsed the whole thing and offered extreme discounts on shipping those animals out to their new homes. This helped that family out in their difficult time and I felt it was a stand up thing to do.

I cant recommend them enough... Give em a a look. And Greg, they may make a good site sponsor.
