We ship countrywide, to your door. We use a COURIER SERVICE. This is overnight (next BUSINESS day service) to major centers (2-3 days extra to REGIONAL centers), but can take a few more days to outlying areas. Please note - large items (over 5kg) might take an extra 1-2 days shipping time.
All times stated above exclude weekends & public holidays.

Delivery times are estimates only and we shall not be liable for any delays caused by the courier company or post office.
Whilst every effort will be made to ensure that your order is ready for collection/delivery as soon as possible, stock sourced from abroad may take up to 21 days from order confirmation. We rely on other local suppliers, importers, shipping agencies and delivery agencies for the distribution of our products and cannot be held responsible for late delivery, for reasons beyond our control.
PLEASE NOTE - We cannot ship to certain townships, farms, plots or extreme outlying areas.
