Frozen rodents are packed with dry ice and shipped UPS Next Day Air Saver. The cost depends on the weight of the entire shipment, and must therefore be estimated by us and paid in advance. Heavier orders of frozen rodents are packed with dry ice and shipped air freight to your nearest airport. If you are located in the state of Florida or some parts of Georgia, we may be able to ship your order via UPS Ground and have it arrive the next day. If you choose this option, we cannot guarantee frozen delivery or any delivery dates, since there is always the possibility of a delay. Shipping via UPS Ground will always be at the customer’s risk.
Discounts and Fees
There is a fee of $6.00 per box for orders less than 100 animals, in addition to shipping charges. We offer quantity discounts as follows:
500 lot: prices drop $0.05 per animal
1000 lot: prices drop $0.10 per animal
The grand total of animals ordered is your lot total. For example, an order of 250 pink mice, 200 small rats, and 50 adult mice qualifies as a 500 lot and would receive the $0.05 per animal discount. Chick prices are not discounted.
