Winter’s looming and temperatures are already starting to drop. You may not be able to control how cold it gets, but you can help the koi you order online stay warm and cozy during transport using one of our three different climate-controlling shipping options.
When you order with Next Day Koi, we use innovative shipping liners to make sure your koi don’t have to be at the mercy of temperatures inside the planes and vehicles they take to get to your front door.
These climate shields are also helpful for those orders that might make it to your front door when you aren’t home.
If your fish have to spend some time in the elements, Next Day Koi’s insulated liners are a superior way for your newest arrivals to relax in relative comfort before making it to your pond.
We have three liner options to choose from during checkout: Climate Shield Insulated Liners, Nature Safe Biodegradable Liners, and Ultra Shield Insulated Cooler.
Climate Shield Insulated Liner
This bag is made of synthetic material that maintains the ambient temperature of the shipping box. The liner opens up, allowing us to place your koi or goldfish in it. It is then carefully placed in the shipping box and sealed with a built-in adhesive strip along the top edge, locking in the warmth and blocking out the cold.
Nature Safe Biodegradable Liner
If you are looking for something that is a little more eco-friendly, the Nature Safe Liner is completely biodegradable and is made from 100% recycled materials.
It consists of two separate pieces that fit together inside of the shipping box and completely surround the bag containing your fish. This seals out any extreme or low temperatures and traps the warmer temperatures in. It also provides a snug ride, stopping the bag from sliding around inside the shipping box during transit.
Ultra Shield Insulated Cooler
The Ultra Shield Insulated Cooler is the most effective climate-control option we offer. These insulated containers are the very same cooler-style boxes that our imported fish are shipped to us in, so you know they have got to be good!
The Ultra Shield Insulated Cooler is comprised of thick, dense styrofoam, designed to be sturdy and strong enough to withstand the less-than-careful practices used in shipping. They are hardy enough to withstand long hauls across the continent, keeping the harsh elements out while maintaining a safe, temperate environment within.
The Ultra Shield Insulated Cooler is available for orders totaling $300 or more.
No matter which shipping liner you choose, we take every measure possible to ensure that your koi arrive at your doorstep alive and healthy. Because the shipping process is stressful for fish, we offer an industry-leading 14 Day Worry Free Guarantee to ensure that you can shop with peace of mind, knowing that you will always be covered.
