You can place orders using our Secure Online Products Catalogue(please click on the Starfield button below for our High Assurance SSL Certificate details). Alternatively you can download an electronic version of our catalogue and phone, fax, email or snail mail us with your order. we will add shipping charges and despatch your order, usually within one or two days. If you have chosen another payment option we contact you as soon as possible, once we have calculated delivery costs, and advise the total invoice amount and the order will be despatched, usually within one/two days of payment receipt. You can also visit our showroom in Noosaville ... but please call or email us to arrange an appointment beforehand.
Shipping Shipping charges are not included in the order; they will be added once we have calculated them. We don’t like to pay any more than is necessary for delivery of our goods, and we assume that your approach is just the same. But within that context we need to ensure that your interests, and our own, are protected, and that we are compliant with appropriate trade legislation. In short, we wish to provide value for money shipment, at the lowest possible price.
When you are considering your shipping preference please take into account these considerations:
We require the delivery company , whether it is Australia Post or a courier, for a signature to ensure delivery can be confirmed. If you prefer a different option, eg for the delivery agency to "leave at front door/back door/side door/letter box if no one home..etc" then please advise your requirements in the comments box when you place your order. If you do wish the consignment to be left without a signature, then our liability (for loss) is limited to the point at which the delivery agency has complied with your instructions. Of course if there is damage to your goods then we will do all that is reasonable, and more, to ensure that you are satisfied, and of course will comply with all aspects of the Trade Practices legislation in your location.
For orders that weigh less than 500gms Australia Post would probably be the cheapest carrier.
In South East QLD Metro, Courier is the cheapest option; it is also probably the cheapest in SE QLD outer metro.
In the east of Australia, say from Cairns to Adelaide, in metro areas, and for orders weighing above 500gms, Courier would probably be the cheapest option.
Outside these metro areas, Courier or Post costs could be comparable. If you wish to get us to compare the rates then please choose the cheapest option.
For areas north and west of Cairns, and west of Adelaide, Australia Post would probably be the cheapest option, and in some areas the only option But again feel free to choose the cheapest option to get us to compare the rates.
Express Shipping. At the moment we have two options for Express Shipping; please put a note in the comments box if you wish either of these options to be explored:
Australia Post Express; this option provides for soft satchels, weighing all up 500gm, 3kg and 5kg. If your order is not bulky and can fit into a box that can be slotted into one of these bags then, for most major metro areas there is a next day delivery option. That said, we are all often disappointed by carriers not meeting their delivery targets, and there are no guarantees, so please always ensure there is some fat in your schedule.
DHL – this is useful generally for larger, bulkier orders and tends to be costly.
We will ship your order via the shipping method that you choose when you complete your order.
You can check out Australia Post's website for more information on their rates, and note that we have some discounts available from A Post for shipments into rural areas in WA , QLD, SA. For our International Customers click here for Australia Post's international parcel rates. These rates do not include GST, and sadly we cannot offer discounts on the published rates.
