Shipments and returns
1.1 Shipping Costs:
Shipping costs include handling and packing fees as well as freight/postage costs. Handling fees are fixed, whereas transport fees vary according to total weight of the shipment. We advise you to group your items in one order. We cannot group two distinct orders placed separately, and shipping fees will apply to each of them.
To check shipping costs for your order, proceed to checkout and complete the checkout process up to but not including payment where the available shipping options and prices available to us will be displayed. Please note that shipping costs are subject to review and change prior to shipment. You will be contacted if additional charges apply.
Shipping costs are based on your address as entered in the checkout procedure. If your address is entered incorrectly extra charges may be applicable to having to resend a shipment to the correct address.
We aim to pack and dispatch your order within 24 hours of receiving it, weekends and public holidays may affect this. We primarily use Australia Post and TNT Express and some orders may be shipped using a local courier, please choose from the available options as shown on the shipping page of the check out.
