Fair prices, reasonable delivery costs, excellent customer service.
We aim to pack and post your order within two business days. However, once payment is received, we usually only take one business day to get your order packed and on its way to you.
The delivery options we offer are:
- Collect from Store
This is a free service for local customers who wish to 'Click and Collect' from our store, and for customers who wish to arrange their own pickup. Please check our current store hours available on our Contact Us page.
- Australia Post Standard parcel
- Australia Post Express parcel
- Fastway satchels (to locations covered by their Australian national network, except NT and WA)
- New Zealand via Australia Post International Standard
- New Zealand via Australia Post International Standard with signature
- New Zealand via Australia Post International Express
(satchels up to 2kg or box <5kg)
All the above methods provide tracking information. All services except International Standard include signature on delivery.
Please note the shipping cost to New Zealand does not include GST.
With some services you may be able to give ‘Authority To Leave’, which authorises the carrier to leave your parcel in a safe location. An 'Authority To Leave' check box is available for you to select in your shopping cart.
If you are able to arrange delivery at lower cost than we can offer, we’re very happy for you to arrange your own courier. If so, choose the ‘Collect from Store’ shipping method in Checkout. Our main aim is to get your order to you safely.
Our delivery charges
Our delivery charges are structured as basic contract charges across four zones.
See price indicators below.
Note: pricing schedule subject to revision. This schedule is current from July 2019.
Costs vary according to the total weight of the order and the delivery location. Heavier parcels travelling further will cost more; additional cost again for Express.
Standard delivery by Australia Post to Australian destinations for a 3kg parcel ranges from $12.25 (East Maitland to Sydney NSW) to $25.90 (East Maitland to WA country - north).
No handling charge
Our delivery charges do not include a handling charge towards the cost of the box, envelope or satchel, packing material such as protective fill, bubble wrap, craft paper, cardboard and sticky tape, and the time it takes to pack and prepare your parcel. When packing customer orders we often recycle and re-use packaging materials from deliveries we receive from our suppliers that would otherwise be discarded after only one use. The packaging your order arrives in might not be pretty, but it will be well padded and secure.
Note about satchels - we encourage you to drop your used Australia Post and Fastway plastic satchels into the REDcycle soft plastic recycling bins at Coles and Woolworths supermarkets.
We have chosen not to offer free postage.
Many online retailers are offering free postage to all customers Australia-wide. However, we choose not to raise the retail prices on our products to cover the cost of providing free postage. Therefore our customers buying online or walking into our store will pay the same price for the same item.
It is difficult to sustain a fixed delivery rate across all of Australia without over-charging some areas and under-charging others. In our favour, East Maitland is located on and close to several major highways – a location well-placed from which to send a parcel to anywhere in Australia.
Our shipping charges:
- are independent of our product pricing
- are transparent, fair and reasonable
- include careful packaging and handling
- include secure delivery to our customers
- are automatically calculated with current rates provided by our carriers.
From time to time we may revise our delivery charges as our carrier charges vary. Any cost savings we are able to achieve on delivery charges are passed on to our customers.
Delivery time will depend on where you are in relation to East Maitland, NSW.
See below for estimated delivery times in business days via standard shipping after your order is packed and sent. This is a rough guide only. It is a combination of information from Australia Post and Fastway.
