For our Australian customers, we offer 3 different postage options, Economy Post, Registered Post, or Express Post.
Australia Post Economy – Not insured.
Australia Post Express – Trackable but not insured – fastest method.
Registered Post – Insured and trackable (safest option) but takes same time as Economy Post.
We suggest you use Registered/Insured Post if you are concerned about loss or damage of parcels. Registered post includes insurance to the value of $100.00 and requires someone to sign for the item on arrival. If this is not possible, collection is available from your nearest Post Office.
Registered Post, and Express Post packages can be traced and recovered if possible. Lost items will be replaced only once Australia Post has finalized the search and only if the items were sent Registered Post which is fully insured. Please contact us on (08) 91 925 223 if you have not received your parcel. Please quote your order number.
Australia Post Air Mail is the shipping method that we use for international orders. It is the most economical but does not include insurance or tracking. Delivery time takes on average 7 to 21 business days depending on destination and destination country processing time.
Additional Options include:
Registered Post (signature required at delivery but no insurance available). Takes the same time as regular Air Mail but is more secure and usually costs about $5 more than regular Air Mail.
Express Post International (fast, basic tracking and signature on delivery with insurance cover also available)
Express Courier International (ECI) – (fastest, full tracking & signature on delivery with insurance also available). Most expensive service available – prices available on request
Insurance is not available for all countries, but for countries where is it available, rates are based on the value of the package: ie: AUD$1-$100 – $8.45, $1-200 – $10.70, $2-300 – $12.95. Insurance can be added to regular Air Mail packages (most but not all countries), for ECI (Express Courier International Packages) or for International Express Parcels.
Postage can sometimes vary from the amount charged at checkout – if this occurs we will contact you to let you know any additional costs.
We take no responsibility for loss of your order in the postal system unless you have it insured.
When you receive your order please check it carefully and let us know if you find any errors. We do check each order carefully, however occasionally mistakes do occur despite our best intentions. We will always happily rectify errors immediately once advised.
