In the event an item is damaged in transit, contact us within 3 business days of delivery and we will replace the item free of charge and cover the cost of shipping you the replacement! All damaged product and packaging must be kept, as UPS may need to inspect the package in order to evaluate it. Emailing us pictures of the damage isn't always necessary, but it is greatly appreciated. Please open all packages and inspect all items for damage immediately upon arrival.

Live Rock damaged during shipping?

BRS makes every effort to securely pack the Rock. However, the UPS automation is not always gentle on heavy products like this and they do not consider this product insurable. Because of this, there is some inherent risk with shipping rock like this across the country and it is impossible to replace or refund broken pieces. If this happens most pieces can be repaired with epoxy or superglue.

Live goods returns

We work directly with trusted vendors to ensure that only healthy livestock is shipped to you. If it is coral, algae, or even copepods if you ever have an issue with your live goods from Bulk Reef Supply, just contact us, and we will make it right. We do not accept returns for any live goods and once the order is placed with the vendor, we are unable to cancel the order.

Open Box Sales

Perk Alert

We sell a variety of products at a discount simply because the box was opened due to internal testing or perhaps a fellow reefer changed their mind, a skimmer didn't fit properly, or for a variety of other reasons. Lucky for you, this means savings on brands and products that otherwise are rarely on sale - score! We personally review each and every product individually to guarantee it is in full, working order. It is our goal to ensure your satisfaction and all Open Box products can be returned to us within 30 days of the purchase date, and a refund will be issued to your original method of payment (we are unable to do exchanges at this time) just contact us for RMA information. All open box items returned must be in the same condition they were sold as, with all included accessories. If they are not, BRS reserves the right to charge a small 10% restocking fee. Any damaged or defective items must be reported to BRS within 3 business days of receiving the order.
