Delivery of Fishboxes
Fishboxes can only be delivered to addresses within Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and mainland United Kingdom.
We use DPD couriers to deliver our Fishboxes. Actual delivery times may vary for you depending on:
- your delivery address;
- circumstances impacting delivery by the overnight courier company.
DPD shall notify you on the morning of delivery of the hours slot in which your delivery will be made.
We reserve the right to use alternative delivery methods without prior notification.
You will not hold us responsible for any delays, outside our control, which relate to the delivery of Fishboxes.
Although the courier service is a ‘next day delivery’ service – there may be times when this can take up to 48 hours if there was a delay during transit with the courier service and we accept no responsibility for this.
The Fishbox packaging is an insulated polystyrene box with a food grade frozen gel pack which releases cold energy into the Fishbox during transit and is suitable to stay chilled for 48 hours.
Your Fishbox products should be transferred to a refrigerator or freezer at the earliest opportunity.
Please note your Fishbox could be delivered any time between 8am – 6pm during working days. We accept no responsibility for Fishboxes which do not meet the next day delivery deadline.
It is your responsibility to report all lost or undelivered Fishboxes within 2 days.
In the event of late or non-delivery you shall be obliged to exhaust the complaints procedure of the overnight couriers before any claim will lie against us. In the event of you exhausting any rights against the overnight courier our liability in respect of late or non-delivery is restricted to the price of the Fishbox to which the claim reflects.
Information about what our products contain
As all of our products are prepared in the same environment – fish and shellfish, although every care is taken, we are unable to guarantee that our products are completely free from any cross contamination between products.
Fish-bones, cartilage and shells in natural products – All fish is hand filleted and prepared and although we do our very best to ensure there are no bones in the Fishbox products, we cannot guarantee this and it is your responsibility to take care when eating these natural products.
We accept no responsibility or liability if any injury or harm occurs due to the consumption of Fishbox products.
We will use all reasonable efforts to ensure all details relating to products on the website are correct. While we have used all reasonable efforts to ensure the accuracy of the information on the website, we cannot guarantee or give any warranty as to the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of any information or material on the website. The product pricing reflects current market prices and portion sizes may vary depending on market prices on the day. [The images on the website are illustrative and the Fishboxes you order may vary slightly from those images.]
Storage of Fishbox products
None of our products have ever been frozen and are always fresh (unless you have ordered a custom made box and asked for a specific frozen product).
Live products such as langoustines must be completely cooked before freezing.
Mussels or oysters need to be consumed or cooked from live and we would not recommend freezing them at any point.
We include best before dates on all our products, please adhere to these as closely as possible to ensure you have the best experience of each product. Save for the specific products referred to in the clause above, products can be frozen up to and including the ‘best before’ date – however we recommend if you are choosing to freeze products, to do so within 1-2 days of receiving your Fishbox.
Please note: All products are subject to availability – particularly during extended periods of bad weather that restrict the local fleet from fishing activities. Very occasionally we may need to replace items in your fishbox with a suitable alternative.
