We are proud to work with award winning courier network Aramex. All shipments are insured up to $1500 (excess payable by customer).

Standard shipping is sent as "Authority To Leave" by default and will be left on your doorstep (less than $200), letterbox or behind a planter pot if you are not home. You must include in the order notes should you require signature on delivery or for the item to be left in a particular place. Once your order is marked as "delivered", it is your responsibility.

For your security, we send orders over $200 as signature only and will require you to arrange re-delivery or collect from your closest newsagent or the courier depot if you aren't home.

Please read the calling card that is left at your front door and follow the instructions.

Rural and remote areas are shipped via Australia Post. They generally deliver parcels quicker in regional areas anyway. As you will already know, your order will take an extra few days to get to you from the closest "big" city.
