Startrack Premium comes with our live delivery guarantee for all orders received within 24 hours of dispatch. If parcels are mismanaged by the courier or held up in transit we cannot guarantee the health and safety of the live stock and therefore cannot except any claims.

Claims must be accompanied with an accurate photo of the fish or coral in the original sealed bag(s). Delivery costs are non-refundable.
