Upon receipt (signature with the freight forwarder ) the risk of loss or deterioration of the goods ( Koi ) passes to the buyer. Complaints due to transport damage must be reported immediately. In the event of damage, you have this noted on the freight documents, you issue by your signature without a note, i.e. the customer has confirmed the integrity of the goods, (no insurance occurs any more). In the case of complaints, only compensation is granted to the value of the fish(s). Freight costs are not eligible for replacement and are therefore always at the customer's expense and risk. With the specified sizes there may be fluctuations of +/- 10%, color changes are also possible, this is not a reason for complaint. Errors and intermediate sale reserved
  3. The warranty for occurring diseases etc. is excluded. Any warranty expires if our fish have come into contact with water of other origin in the basin, pond, etc. This applies in particular to bacterial infections, parasites, KHV.  A negative KHV result on our part does not 100% rule out the possibility that individual cases may occur. In this case, each customer is responsible, this also applies to all other diseases, so that a quarantine of at least 6 weeks is advised! There is no legal claim! (Our fish come from our circulatory system and are tested several times a year for parasites, KHV and bacteria) We assume no liability for the old and new stock of your fish. When buying fish at the MICA-Koi site, the risk of loss or deterioration of the goods passes to the buyer after leaving the property MICA-Koi, and are deemed not to be objected to.

To do this, send an e-mail within 24 hours of arrival informing us which fish are involved. Complaints received after 24 hours are excluded. There is a warranty period of 24 hours on live Koi. Basically, you need to send us a photo (digital) of the dead fish in order to make a claim. To store (freezing) appropriately for a possible visit.
