Therefore, the time taken for the goods to reach you once they have been despatched will depend on the carrier and your location. Please allow up to 10 business days for delivery. Our goods are often despatched from multiple warehouses around Australia and this means they may not all arrive at the same time.
• Most of our goods are delivered by courier directly to your door and require a signature upon delivery, weekdays only during normal business hours. As such these items cannot be delivered to a PO Box. Where suitable, we recommend you have your purchases delivered to your workplace address. If no one is present when the delivery is made, the courier will leave a calling card and return the package to the depot where it will be held. It s the purchaser’s responsibility to contact the carrier to provide further instructions and/or make alternative arrangements for delivery or collection. If no instructions are provided by recipient within 5 business days, goods will be returned to sender and the customer will be responsible for any additional re-shipping charges that are incurred for items returned to sender.

This tracking number will be linked to the carrier tracking website and if you click on it, it will allow you to track the status of your order. In some cases updates of tracking status can take 24-48 hours to update accurately. Alternatively you can always contact the courier directly and quote your tracking number and they will be able to give you more accurate tracking information. Carrier tracking websites and numbers:
