In some cases an order may take an extra day or 2 to arrive which is out of our control. We do not have our own Delivery company, we use Australia Post and Fastway and we are not responsible for orders taking longer then what it should. If you order is taking longer then expected, please contact us and we can open a case or enquiry with the courier company. We ship all orders out within 1 business day of the order being placed, provided their are no hold ups due to out of stock items. We currently do not send orders via express post, unless you need an order urgently then we can arrange this for you. Once we are set up with Australia post using eParcel then we can offer express post as a regular shipping method at an extra cost.
We now offer Express Post. Please understand that we try to get all orders out within 24 hours of being placed so a day for handling needs to be allowed. Once your order has been packed for sending you can then expect to see your order within 2 business days if you have paid for express post. If you are located in WA or NT it can take up to 3 business days due to the transit times with Australia Post, this is out of our control.
