Shipping Timing / Weather - Geckos will be shipped during optimal weather where temperatures are between 2c and 28c degrees (celsius) (lows and highs to be within this range). Shipment timing will be dependent on: weather as stated above, on our availability, and on your availability. We will try to ship as early as possible within these constraints but make no guarantees on timing in advance or at time a purchase or hold is made. We will coordinate a mutually agreeable time: 1) a tentative time will be schedule with you approx. 1 week in advance based on the current weather outlook, 2) the date will be locked in within 24-48 hours of the tentative shipping date and is subject to change if the weather outlook has changed, 3) when the gecko is shipped you will be kept apprised via e-mail updates. Both parties reserve the right to change ship times at any time due to personal emergencies. Fees may apply to the party who delays the shipment (ie. if less than 24 hours notice).
