Fiji Premium Branch Live Rock is a premium high end type of rock from the Fijian Islands. It is sent to LAX from Fiji via Air Freight so it is always fresh. Other types of Fiji rock are sent via cargo ship so the rock is much less than fresh once it reaches the US. The Premium Branch rock is very colorful and has a great variety of shapes and sizes in each box. Added to a box of Fiji Totoka Live Rock, which is mostly ancient table acros, the Premium Branch rock will make a wonderful display for your aquarium.
So how does this rock get to you?
Once we receive your pre-order, you will be contacted to arrange for shipping. There are two options available. We ship small orders of one or two boxes via FedEx. By default, we will price out FedEx Express Saver which is a three day service. Because of the packing techniques in Indonesia as well as our own techniques, the Live Rock does exceptionally well with this travel time and the cost savings in freight is worth it in many people’s minds. We also offer 2nd Day and Standard Overnight from FedEx.
The second option is to use an air freight service. For orders over two boxes this is really the least expensive way to go. We contract with most airlines and can find the cheapest and best flight to your local airport. This process is usually faster than FedEx as well. The drawback is that you will have to drive to the airport to pick the rock up on the day it arrives. You would then pay the airline directly for the freight. The charge varies based on the actual air line but typically runs between $0.35 and $0.85 per pound with a 100 pound minimum.
You will have the choice of which method to use once you check out. You will not be charged anything for shipping at the completion of your order. A representative will call you to inform you of what the charges are and, if you have chosen to use a FedEx service, those charges will be added to your invoice. We have one of the best discounts in the industry from FedEx, and we will always charge you the exact shipping amount, nothing more.
