Scheduling Your Seafood Delivery
using the check-out in our online fish shop, you are able to specify which delivery
day you would prefer (Tuesday to Saturday). You can place an order and schedule its seafood delivery
up to three weeks in advance.
We are partnered with a very reliable courier company, in most cases your seafood delivery will arrive before midday. On occasions the delivery time might stretch to the afternoon but that is a rarity. Deliveries to most postal codes in Scotland will be made by 4pm; for the more remote post codes please call for delivery options.
Usually a signature is required from the person who receives your seafood delivery. If you are not going to be at home to receive your delivery, please leave special delivery instructions for the delivery driver by inputting your requirements in the "Delivery Instruction" box during the check out process. Please be aware, if you are not available to take delivery or have not left suitable instructions for the delivery driver, your order may not be re-delivered until the following day. We cannot accept responsibility for deliveries that have not been signed for, or for orders that have to be re-delivered.
Amending or Cancelling Your Seafood Delivery
We do not take payment from your credit or debit card until the day of dispatch. To amend the date of an existing delivery or, to make a cancellation, please contact us via phone, email or leave a message on our answer phone (01726 862 489). We will not be able to amend or cancel a delivery after 9.30am on the day of dispatch (e.g. contact us before 9.30am on Wednesday to cancel a delivery scheduled to be with you on Thursday).
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I am not at home when my order arrives?
Please leave special delivery instructions for the delivery driver by inputting your messages in the "Delivery Instruction" box during the check out process. Lots of our customers ask for their delivery to be left at a neighbours house or in a garden shed; the courier company will leave your delivery wherever you specify but, as you were not available to sign for your fish order, we cannot accept liability if it is not there when you return.
How is the seafood packaged and stored during delivery?
Your seafood is bagged and ready to cook or freeze on delivery. All your fish will be vacuum packed or sealed in trays, all labeled with use by dates and a suggested frozen shelf life (around 6 months). Once your fish has been packaged to keep it in prime condition we place it into a lined insulated polystyrene box. The fish is surrounded with chilled gel packs to keep it cool and in perfect condition (see the photographs to the top left of this page).
Who is the delivery courier?
have used the same overnight courier company, "APC Couriers" to deliver our seafood to all major cities and locations across England, Scotland and Wales for over four years and have always found them to be efficient, polite and deliver on time!
