Delivery & Shipping
Delivery & Shipping Policy
We pride ourselves on fantastic customer service and our delivery & shipping service is no exception. No matter how much you buy, shipping is just $15 across mainland Australia!
We know what it’s like when you have ordered something online, you want to start using it straight away!
That's why we offer optional same-day-dispatch when you purchase 'Jump the Queue' as long as we receive your order and payment before 2pm (QLD time, excluding weekends and public holidays). If the 'Jump the Queue' order is made after 2pm, it will be dispatched the next day.
We work hard to process your order as quickly as possible, however it can sometimes take a couple of days for your order to be shipped due to the high demand of orders coming through (especially during sale periods). Please allow a slightly longer delivery time for larger items which won't fit into a postage satchel, or delivery to regional areas.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss your order further please feel free to call our friendly customer service representatives on (07) 4721 4425 or email us at
