Please note: The Door-to-door option does not deliver to PO Boxes.
We charge a flat rate for all door-to-door deliveries. The rate is listed during checkout. This rate will cover you for any order with two (2) or fewer boxes. Should your order require more than two (2) boxes, we might quote you on an additional delivery charge.
Delivery times depend on the weight and the destination of your order. Typically any order under 2KG will be delivered within one (1) working day after your order has been dispatched. If your order is over 2KG then it should reach you in two (2) to three (3) working days. These delivery times are under the assumption that your order is going to a major city. Should your order be going to a regional city then delays might happen.
