Please contact us after purchasing to confirm shipping date and shipping method. Shipping is paid for separately after checkout.
IMPORTANT: All koi shipments need at least 2 days (48 hour) notice prior to shipping in order to stop the feeding and prepare your koi for a safe journey.
Kodama Koi Farm has been shipping koi for many years and have learned what works best for a safe delivery of your koi. The shipping formula is not absolute. However, when packing koi, Kodama Koi Farm takes into consideration the condition of the koi, water temperature, delivery time, and so on. Kodama Koi Farm reserves the right to determine how many koi can be shipped in a box.
Our 24 hour koi health guarantee is based on our farm’s packing recommendation for your shipment. Any request to alter the shipping/packing recommendation requires a waiver of the 24 hour koi health guarantee to be sent to Kodama Koi Farm via E-mail.
If you have any questions about shipping, contact us at (808) 354-7031 or email@example.com.

UPS SHIPPING FEES WITHIN THE UNITED STATES
(UPS SHIPPING FEES TO CANADA)
$105.00 per Medium box

Additional $20.00 per box for Saturday delivery
UPS ships directly to your door. Your shipment is delivered from Hawaii via UPS Next Day Air. In most cities and locations, UPS delivery usually arrives by 12:30 pm; but can vary based on location. Delivery time for some rural areas may be different. Please check the estimate arrival time with UPS (1-800-PickUPS).
You will also receive your tracking number via email from UPS directly on the day your koi ships.
UPS INSURANCE (RECOMMENDED)
We now offer insurance on UPS shipments. UPS will give a full refund for the price of the koi and shipping cost if the shipment is delayed due to mechanical failure, sorting error, and so on. However, delays due to adverse weather conditions are not covered. If you do not purchase insurance, neither Kodama Koi Farm nor UPS will be held liable for delays in shipment or damages to koi.
UPS INSURANCE FEE
The cost for UPS insurance is 4% of the koi’s value. As a point of reference, if you bought a koi for $500, you can insure it for only $20 (4% x $500).
SATURDAY UPS DELIVERY
There is an additional fee of $20.00 per box for Saturday deliveries. The Saturday delivery option is not available in all areas.
There is some risk when opting for Saturday UPS delivery. Shipping delays are rare, however it does happen from time to time. A shipping delay may result in your koi not arriving until Monday. Because of this possibility, we highly recommend that you purchase UPS insurance for these deliveries. See UPS Shipping Fees above. The insurance will cover the cost of the shipping as well as your cost for the koi if the delay is a result of a UPS sorting error or mechanical failure. Delays due to unfavorable weather and other acts of nature are not covered.
