FAQ/ Troubleshooting on Shipping 


How do I get an estimate of shipping costs?

There is a delivery estimator on each product page. You can find it just below the price, and above the ‘add to basket’ icon. Click on the link and you’ll be asked to type in your postcode. There maybe a couple of delivery options available to you.  The cost is confirmed at the checkout point once you have chosen your preferred option. 


The delivery estimator &/ checkout process is not giving me a delivery cost. It says quote required. 

Not all Australian postcodes are covered by the delivery estimator.  If you get the above error message, you can either (i) send an email and ask for a quote or (ii) continue through the checkout and purchase process, choosing the ‘quote method’ and we will send you a quote. If you’re not happy with the quote, we will, of course refund the full amount.
