Deliveries, Charges & Terms
We process all orders immediately
We do occasionally fall behind on despatching orders, if we have no stock on hand or if there is an abnormally large queue. It may take up to 72 hours on some ocassions to send out orders, but this is an exception. If the purchase is made before noon on any business day, and the items are in our warehouse, the shipment is sent out the same day. Some deliveries may arrive a day or two following the purchase if the destination is within Victoria, while some can take up to ten days if the address is very distant from our warehouse. If the address for delivery is within Australia, the goods are most likely to be delivered by Australia Post and can reasonably be expected to arrive within 3 to 10 working days. If you feel that your order has been unreasonably delayed, please contact us and we will be happy to track your shipment.
Insurance of goods against breakage and mishap

We will not be liable for cost or inconvenience transpiring from customs restrictions, import duties and tariffs peculiar to the destination.

We always endeavour to deliver goods purchased as promptly as is possible so that we may serve our customers again.
