Orders placed after 11:30am may not qualify for same day delivery. These special services are not available until 8th January 2018.
5. What does 'pre-order' or 'expected dispatch date' mean?
Due to high demand, some of our product may be sold out before the next shipment arrives. You can order these items in advance to avoid missing out again. Sometimes exciting new products will be launched on pre-order before the first shipment arrives. The expected dispatch date is an estimated date of when we start dispatching orders of that product. Sometimes orders will be dispatched sooner, and sometimes later, depending on the shipment status, port congestion, weather conditions and other factors relating to the international shipment. We will contact you if there are any delays. Please note when placing an order of multiple items your whole order will be dispatched according to the expected dispatch date. You also have the option to receive partial shipment of in stock items before this date. Simply call us to arrange (extra delivery charges may apply).

7. Payment security and fraudulent orders
Our web site uses industry leading encryption methods to keep your personal information secure throughout the payment process and we do not store your credit card information. When we receive a high value order or have reason to suspect an order may be fraudulent we will follow our company procedures to confirm whether the order is legitimate, which may include requesting a scan or photograph of your credit card and identification document such as a driver’s licence. We do this in an effort to protect the card holder and the company from fraud, and we reserve the right to cancel an order if we suspect fraud, whether verification steps were carried out or not.

2. Can I send my friend or a courier to pick up my order?
Yes, you are welcome to organise your own courier for pick up from our warehouses. We will need to know in advance who is coming to pick up the order, and we will be asking them for photographic ID especially if the order has been paid for in advance. This process protects you against identity theft and ensures your order is given to the right person.

3. Do I need to have someone at home at the time of delivery?
All orders are shipped by trackable services and a signature is required upon delivery. Please note that an "authority to leave" (ATL) can be given to the transport company however this is not recommended as it will void your transit insurance and we will be unable to accept responsibility for any damage or loss of items left on your premises. For larger items (over 30kg) your assistance at the receiving end is required due to OH&S purposes since there will be only one driver on board the delivery vehicle. Extra services can be arranged such as 2-person delivery however this needs to be booked in advance when you are placing your order (call us if you require any additional services). Please note extra charges will apply.
4. Can you guarantee a day and time for delivery?
Generally you will be given an indication of the day of delivery but not the exact time. Depending on your location and the transport company in your area you may be sent an SMS or given a call to notify you of the expected delivery day. Please note we do not guarantee delivery dates or times unless you live in Sydney and order our SAME DAY DELIVERY service (see above under 'How do I get SAME DAY DELIVERY?'.
5. Will the courier take items into my home?
Items will be delivered to your door on ground level. If you live in a unit or apartment block the courier will deliver it to the front entrance of the complex on ground level. If you need any extra services this needs to be arranged with our team in advance and extra charges will apply.
6. What happens if I am not home at the time of delivery? Do I need to pay for re-delivery?
It is important that you give us accurate address and telephone contact details. Depending on the transport company delivering in your area you may be left a calling card if you are not home at the time of delivery. In this case you simply need to call the number on the card to arrange a re-delivery. If additional re-deliveries are required, or if a delivery time has been arranged with the transport company and you are not home at the time of delivery we will be notified by the transport company and you will need to pay re-delivery fees before re-delivery is attempted. For SAME DAY DELIVERIES a fee will apply if the driver appears at your premises, and is required to wait as you are not home or is delayed due to difficult access.
1. What happens if my item is damaged in transit?
If an item has been delivered and it clearly appears damaged it is important to check carefully before you sign for the delivery.
