Ground Transport Information
Disclaimer: Once your hedgehog has been picked up by the transporter, Hedgehog Heaven is no longer responsible in the event of any damages, illness, injuries, or death that could occur during transit. It is known that transport can be stressful for animals. Hedgehog Heaven has no control over what happens to the animal during transport. Once the animal has left our care, Hedgehog Heaven makes no guarantees of the animal's condition when it arrives. We prefer all our buyers to pick up their new pets from us in person. However, if the buyer wishes to choose this transport option, it is at the buyer's own risk. With that being said, we do trust these transporters to do everything in their power to bring your baby safely to you.
** Please read this full page if you are considering ground transport. Estimated times and dates ARE NOT A GUARANTEE DELIVERY DATE!! Transport length can take anywhere from 2-3 days or up to a week or two! These are NOT direct routes from us to you! Direct routes are VERY expensive and most transporters do not do this because they have other animals on their route that are patiently waiting to get to their homes as well.
Our transporters take GREAT care of the animals on the route. Weather, traffic, and accidents all play into pick-up dates and times. Estimated times WILL change. EXPECT THIS. We have full-time jobs outside of our hedgehogs and we have to take the time for the transporters to pick up your baby (yes that means taking a sick or personal day from our other job to make sure we are home for pick up). We do not control the time of drop-off or pick-up. If you are planning on using transport please be aware of this, be flexible, be patient, and be KIND to our transporters.***
Tipping your ground transporter is always appreciated!
Ground Transport Policies
Once your baby is reserved, we will reach out to the pet transporter to get our baby on the next available route via door-to-door ground transport. We understand you may have work during the estimated drop off time, if that’s the case you need to find a trusted family member or friend to be available for pick up. Failure to comply with these terms will result in the transporter leaving with the animal. The buyer may choose to cancel the sale or have the animal redelivered at the buyer's expense. Cancellation of the sale will result in NO refunds. It is the buyer's responsibility to be available at the time and date that the transporters are expected to arrive.
Payment for transportation: Transport fees are due at the time you choose your hedgehog (when they are 4-5 weeks old). This way we can reserve your transport spot as soon as we get confirmation that your baby can go on transport. Your hedgehog will not leave on transport unless full payment is received.
