Shipping policy

Our Terms and Conditions of Sale form the contract for purchasing goods from us and you should read these prior to purchase.

Please note all couriers are experiencing high demand and on occasion struggling with capacity. As such, some shipments are experiencing delays, which are out of our control. We apologise for any inconvenience and will endeavour to keep you updated via the tracking numbers, so you can monitor your expected delivery date.

Please note we are not able to ship to every country in the world, so if you are unable to checkout or get shipment quotes it may be that our couriers cannot ship to your destination.
