Free Standard Delivery on orders over 50

Standard delivery

Standard UK Mainland delivery is FREE on all orders over £50. This may exclude Scotland, UK islands, N. Ireland, some Central London locations and international delivery destinations. If you are ordering large or heavy items from any of these locations, please contact us for a delivery quotation.

Please note that we reserve the right not to deliver an order if we believe the address is not secure, for example to a communal postal address or PO box. If this affects an order you place, we'll notify you as soon as possible.

We charge £4.25 for standard UK delivery on orders under £50.

Charges and options

About our delivery service

  • The delivery options for a product can be found at checkout (see table below). We deliver most items Monday to Friday, 7.30am-6pm (although some of our carriers may deliver slightly earlier or later).
  • Products may be sent out from multiple locations and therefore may arrive separately, but you won't incur additional delivery charges as a result.
  • If you order items with different quoted despatch times, your order may be consolidated and those products will arrive together, usually at the faster time.
  • If next working day or Saturday delivery is available for your order, we'll offer you these options at checkout.
  • We can't guarantee delivery within our usual timescales to a small number of remote rural areas.
  • Sorry, but we don't deliver to BFPO addresses
  • On rare occasions, some items may be delivered outside the published timed windows. 

Delivery Options and Arrangements

As part of our standard delivery service, Rocket Aquatics & Pets have partnered with UKMail couriers to provide you with the best available delivery experience. Using the UKMail Delivery Notification Service, UKMail will text or email you a time slot for your delivery on the designated day. You also have the option to change the delivery date. UKMail delivery options are listed in the table below:

We have been delivering large glass aquariums for over 15 years. Our pallet couriers have been hand-picked for their expertise and ability to deliver with care and on time uniformly throughout the UK. They will call you the working day before your agreed delivery date to confirm the arrangements and will deliver as close as possible to the ground floor entrance of the property or leave on a pallet on your drive etc (whichever you prefer). 

Availability of delivery options and upgrades are shown at checkout.
