How is my order sent?
All orders within Australia are sent by Australia Post - Parcel Post or Express Post when this option is selected at checkout. International orders are sent by Australia Post.
When will I receive my order?
Delivery times are at the mercy of Australia Post however we generally find the majority of our orders are received within 3 days after posting in WA and 7 days after posting for all other states. This can be longer over particularly busy mailing periods such as Christmas. When Express Post option is used delivery time is usually 2 days after posting in WA and 3 or 4 days after posting to all other states.
Can I track my order through Australia Post?
Yes, once your order has been sent by us we will send you a confirmation email and an Australia Post tracking number to enable you to see your order's progress in getting to you.
How securely packaged will my order be?
We send all orders in specially designed strong LP mailers. These mailers are designed to withstand the rough & tumble of the post and do an excellent job of ensuring your order is received in pristine condition. We also add extra cardboard packers within the LP mailers as required to further protect your order.
All other products purchased from our website are sent in equally secure boxes or mailer bags as appropriate.
