ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND IF YOU SEND FULL PAYMENT OR A DEPOSIT YOU ARE AGREEING THAT YOU'VE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND ACCEPT ALL TERMS STATED BELOW.

A 25% DEPOSIT IS ASKED FOR ALL GECKOS THAT YOU WISH US TO HOLD FOR YOU, THIS GIVES US CONFIDENCE THAT YOU ARE COMMITTED TO THE ANIMAL AND  AVOIDS TIME WASTERS EARLY ON IN THE PROCESS.

IF YOU LIVE LOCALY TO US AND WOULD RATHER PICK UP YOUR GECKO YOURSELF THEN THATS NOT A PROBLEM, WE CAN AVOID THE SHIPPING ALL TOGETHER AND JUST ARANGE IT BETWEEN US, FOR SOME GECKOS WE MAY BE ABLE TO ARRANGE MEETING SOMEWHERE TO EXCHANGE BUT WE WOULD RATHER YOU VISIT US HERE AT GARGSHACK, HERE WE CAN SHOW YOU FIRST HAND THE PARENTS THE LIVING CONDITIONS AND ANYTHING ELSE TO SHOW YOU THAT YOUR ONLY GETTING THE BEST QUALITY WE CAN PROVIDE.
