Order Change Requests
Bulk Reef Supply can accommodate order change requests prior to the order being placed into an "In Picking" status. Typically, orders are picked approximately one hour after being placed. Our warehouse team works hard to ensure that all orders placed before 3:30pm CT M-F are packaged and shipped the same day. In order to achieve this, orders can no longer be modified once they have begun the picking process. To find out the current status of any order all you'll need to do is log in to your BRS account and take a look at your current order status.
Bulk Reef Supply currently ships to the United States and Canada only.
Shipping to Canada
All Canadian orders received before Thursday at midnight CST are shipped via UPS on Friday. They are shipped together on Friday to utilize a program which reduces brokerage fees and allows us to prepay all of the taxes, duties, and fees for you so there are no surprise charges at your doorstep. There is an 18% charge assessed at checkout to cover these costs.
The 18% charge is based on the port of entry our shipments pass through Canadian Customs and not the "ship to" address. 18% covers an average of the brokerage charges, GST/PST/HST, fees and the duties required on the wide variety of products we ship to Canada. The net cost of this may exceed 18%; in this case BRS will cover the difference at no expense to you.
Please note all prices on BulkReefSupply.com are in US dollars, not Canadian. Canadian orders are not eligible for any free shipping offers. We are unable to send some items to Canada (all fish or coral food, as well as Pukani, Tonga, Fiji, and shelf rock). If these items are on an order they will be canceled and refunded.
Freight Forwarding/Holding Policy
Due to the elevated risk of credit card fraud, customs issues, damaged shipments, and warranty issues, BulkReefSupply.com does not allow shipping to freight forwarding services. We reserve the right to cancel all orders shipped to freight forwarders/holders without notice. Any order shipped to freight forwarding or holding facility will not be eligible for any support.
Customer pickup hours are available at our warehouse Monday - Friday 10am - 4pm. Customers who wish to pick up their orders at BRS will need to select the local pickup shipping option during checkout or contact the customer service department at 763-432-9691 and request a local pickup. Orders can then be picked up 1 business day after order is received.
