Delivery Information

NB: Orders will currently only be shipped Monday-Friday, we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to alleviate this issue soon.

If you decide that the product you purchased from us is not exactly what you were looking for, or is the wrong size, there is no problem returning it to us.

We will accept products back for exchange or a full refund as long as it is with its original packaging, receipt and the product itself unused or unworn. We cannot refund postage.  

Our returns policy is flexible but we ask that items being returned are done so within 21 days of receipt and accompanied with a letter explaining the reason for the return, and the position of the fault.

Remember, before purchase, if in any doubt about size, colour or suitability of a product, you can email us with any queries about all of our products. Our staff are experts and will respond to emails quickly during working hours.

If for any reason your order arrives with a fault or it has been damaged during transit, send it back to us and we will send you a replacement.

Warranties

All the products we sell are covered by a manufacturers warranty, which will cover the product for faults and defects. This period of cover can vary, most items will be 1 year, but it is worth remembering that warranties do not cover general wear and tear. If you have an issue with a product purchased from Aquatics Revolution contact us first. Returned items with a warranty or repair issue should be clean and you will have to cover the postage cost back to Aquatics Revolution.  

If you have any queries about Delivery , please don't hesitate to contact us or read on for more info below.

Unfortunately, at this time we cannot take orders for delivery to British Forces Post Offices (BFPO), Freight Forwarders, international addresses or The Channel Islands (GY, JE).

Express UK & Ireland Delivery

  • Orders where the weight of one parcel will exceed the maximum allowed parcel weight stipulated by our carriers. In this instance, the order will be split across two or more parcels (depending on order size and weight) and we will contact you to inform you of this, and send you an invoice for any excess shipping costs associated with your order. The first parcel in your order will still be shipped free of charge should your order need to be shipped across multiple parcels.
  • Highlands and Offshore Islands: We are unable to offer free shipping to the Highlands and offshore islands at this time. Should your shipping address fall within one of these areas we will contact you to arrange payment of shipping costs. 
  • Aquarium deliveries: Some aquariums and delivery areas carry a surcharge, which is outlined on our aquarium product pages. Please see 'Aquarium Delivery' section below for relevant information regarding aquarium delivery surcharges.

 

Aquarium Delivery

You will be contacted to confirm a delivery day for your aquarium. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are present for the delivery of your aquarium. If nobody is present at time of delivery it will be returned to the warehouse and a rearranged delivery will be organised at a cost of £35).

Some aquariums and delivery areas may be subject to an additional surcharge, as outlined on our product pages. If this applies to your order, you will be contacted with information of the relevant surcharge and an invoice for this will be sent out to the email address provided when you placed your order.

This item will be shipped out via kerbside pallet delivery from our supplier. It is your responsibility to check what has been delivered to you, ensure that you are satisfied with the item, and that there are no damages to the product before you sign for the item.

We cannot accept responsibility for any damages to your item once it has been checked and signed for. It is therefore essential that you are satisfied that your aquarium is in good condition at the time you take delivery.

If the aquarium is damaged you should contact us immediately. We will assess the damage and either arrange for replacement parts or a replacement goods. If we are notified after 24 hours of the aquarium being delivered then we will be unable to replace it.

 

Missed Deliveries

Courier companies will attempt to deliver your parcel/s on two occasions (a card should be posted at each unsuccessful delivery attempt). If at this point a delivery cannot be made the parcel/s will be returned either to the delivering depot for collection by yourself, the dispatching warehouse either in Southampton or Manchester, or to our Belfast store. In the event that a parcel is returned either to a dispatching warehouse or to our Belfast store we will reach out to you to give you the option of either paying for a repeat shipment (the cost of the service initially used to ship your order) or to cancel your order for a refund less our original costs to ship the item.

 

Delayed Deliveries

Aquatics Revolution denies any liability for any consequential loss caused by damaged or faulty items, delay in dispatch, or delays by carriers. In the event of a timed delivery method (next day, etc.) not arriving on time, any extra delivery charge above the standard delivery charge will be refunded. However, we cannot accept any liability involving third party contractors and would advise that no arrangements be made for installation until you are in receipt of your order.

If we become aware of any factors that will cause your order to be delayed then we will reach out to you via email to inform you of this fact.

 

Returns

Product Returns - Damaged Products

We pack orders as securely as we can to minimise the likelihood of damage during transit, but sometimes parcels do get damaged en route, resulting in breakage. If something in your order is damaged, please contact us with the details within 24 hours of delivery at marketing@exoticaquatics.co.uk.

It is vitally important that you check items for damage, externally and internally, before signing for your delivery. In the event that an item is signed for and accepted, product replacement/refund may be withheld if damage is discovered after acceptance.

 

 

Product Returns – Faulty Products

If you wish to return your order, please do so within 30 days of receipt of your products by contacting us at marketing@exoticaquatics.co.uk. Products that carry a manufacturer's guarantee can be returned, if faulty, to us for exchange/repair during the warranty period. All products still in guarantee will be tested upon return. If we accept the return of goods/cancellation of order (other than on the grounds of defect) then we reserve the right to make a handling, cancellation and restocking charge of 10%.

Should the product be returned, and after testing proves faulty, we will exchange the product like for like, and incur the costs of redelivery. Alternatively, we can offer to repair and return the item, minus delivery charges, to the customer.

Should a product be returned, and if after testing your product is found to be non-faulty, a charge of £20 will be payable to cover collection and redelivery before your goods can be returned.

Product Returns – Aquarium Dropships

All aquariums will be shipped out via kerbside pallet delivery from our supplier. It is your responsibility to check what has been delivered to you, ensure that you are satisfied with the item, and that there are no damages to the product before you sign for the item.

We cannot accept responsibility for any damages to your item once it has been checked and signed for. It is therefore essential that you are satisfied that your aquarium is in good condition at the time you take delivery.

If the aquarium (or accompanying cabinet, if applicable) is damaged you should refuse the delivery and contact us immediately. We will assess the damage and either arrange for replacement parts or a replacement aquarium. If we are notified after 24 hours of the aquarium being delivered then we will be unable to replace it.

If you have changed your mind about the aquarium you have received, and wish to return it, then contact us at marketing@exoticaquatics.co.uk. We will arrange an uplift for you from your address. Aquarium returns MUST be returned in their original retail packaging, undamaged, and secured to a pallet as all aquarium returns are completed by a pallet courier company. Aquariums not properly prepared for collection will not be accepted by the courier. Once the aquarium arrives back with our supplier, they will inform us and, providing the aquarium is in the condition in which the warehouse expect to receive it, a refund will be processed, less £80 + VAT to cover freight costs of shipping and returning this item.

If you are shipping an item over £75, you should consider using a trackable shipping service or purchasing shipping insurance. We cannot  guarantee that we will receive your returned item.
