GeckoNerd always puts the safety of the gecko first when considering shipping. We ship with FED EX priority overnight. Most packages arrive by 10:30am. If you live in a smaller town, or in a rural area your order may arrive between 12-4pm. For locations with weather below 50 degrees at night or above 80 during the day we may require you to pickup from a Fedex Shipping Center near you. Please bring your state issued ID and Fedex tracking number we provide you with when pickup up from a Fedex Ship Center. If we are shipping door to door you must be present to sign for your box. Shipping cost is a $50 flat rate anywhere within the continental U.S. If you are local to Miami and would like to pickup, we can schedule a convenient day together.
