1. What are the details with koi shipping costs and delivery?
CUSTOMER SERVICE will contact you to confirm delivery date once the order is processed. If there are any updates to your koi you will be contacted before the shipping date. The shipping fee will be sent separately after your koi has been prepared. See the instructions steps 6 and 7 for more information about processing your order and receiving your koi!
IMPORTANT: All koi shipments need 5–10 days 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.
Note: Additional $20.00 per box for Saturday delivery. Any koi that is over 18.6 inches is shipped by itself in one large box.
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% per $100of the koi's value. As a point of reference, if you bought a koi for $500, you can insure it for only $20.00.
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.
If anything should happen to your Koi within the holding period i.e.: illness and/or death NO replacements will be given. We will issue a store credit towards your next purchase. Store credit must be used within 6 months from the date of issue (extensions are given on a case-by-case basis).
We do not accept returns for koi, all koi sales are final. Keeping our koi and facility as clean as possible is critical to assure delivery of clean and healthy koi to our customers. Therefore, once the Koi leaves our farm and has experienced other waters, we do not allow any koi to come back for any reason. Avoiding cross contamination is the best practice.
At this time we do not ship our koi for sale directly to Mexico. Please cross the border to pick up your Koi at the closest UPS FedEx station inside the US, OR Please contact Tony at High Aqua. He can buy and import Koi from us and then deliver or ship the Koi to you.
You can reach him through his facebook : https://www.facebook.com/highaquamexico
or whatsapp : +526643277251
If you have any further questions, Please contact our office for more information.
It depends, as each country requires various documents, one being a health certificate. Please find out from your appropriate government agency what documents are necessary for you to complete in order to import Koi into your country.

Shipments by Air Cargo are sent Freight Collect. You will need to pay the shipping cost charged by the airline when you receive the koi at the airport.
All Hawaiian Airlines Air Cargo shipments will be sent pre-paid on Kodama Koi Farm’s account. We will charge your credit card once we receive the charges.
We use the following air cargo services:
Delta Airlines – Next day arrival to all US Mainland destinations
Hawaiian Airlines – Same day delivery to California (Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco), Oregon (Portland), Washington (Seattle), Nevada (Las Vegas), Arizona (Phoenix).
Two-day advanced notice is necessary and our holding policy will be applied to this service.
Our holding policy requires customers to pick up their koi shipment within 2 hours after the plane has landed.
Liability notice for Delta Air Cargo:
If you choose Delta Air Cargo for your koi shipments, please note that Kodama Koi Farm will no longer be liable for shipping problems through that method due to AVI/AVA shipments not being guaranteed and also because Delta does NOT offer shipping insurance.
If you still prefer Delta Air Cargo, please send us an email verifying that you take full responsibility for the koi shipment and will not hold Kodama Koi Farm liable for any shipping problems or koi's health.
Explanation: Live animal shipments (AVI or AVA) have the lowest priority in shipping; so if a koi needs to be guaranteed to arrive within 24 hours, Delta Dash would be the appropriate shipping status; however the cost of the shipment goes up substantially.
Note: For Delta Dash shipments, we will charge an estimated shipping cost prior to shipping.
To save on shipping costs via Delta Dash and get extra insurance protection, we recommend shipping via UPS and using UPS Insurance; and the vast majority of our customers use UPS.
There is no problem as long as it fits inside the box and it does not affect your Koi during the transportation. We have a good selection of Koi products in the Supply section of our website. Please take a moment to visit our Supplies page.
Also, please look at your shopping cart. If there is space in your box, you will find the link that shows what additional items can fit in the box.

we prepare the Koi and pack them in an oxygenated box for them to survive 24-48 hours depending on the environment.
Certain physical changes may occur from the time the koi is packed to when you receive it. During this long travel time, it common that the koi may show signs of illness but not to worry it is just stress.

black color especially may get lighter due to its stress, but it will come back over the time. so no worry.
Under active: No/Minimal movement
