Shipping & Returns

Shipping Policy

Please note shipping charges for some of our listings are calculated based on item size, weight and your delivery postcode. If you require multiple items or the postage figure shown appears high please contact us prior to purchase - we may be able to offer a better shipping price or offer combined shipping discounts.

We can't offer local pickups - all items must be shipped. You'll find our prices including delivery are lower than the hardware stores - let us know if you find a cheaper price.

Shipping of this item will be with one of our nominated national couriers. To avoid any delays and a possible re-delivery fee we will automatically request that the courier leave the parcel if you aren't home at a safe location near the front door. 

If your delivery location is not secure (eg unit block), you have other instructions for delivery (eg throw over side gate) or you do not want the item left if you aren't home to sign you must send us this instruction in the note to seller section when you make payment.

We will update your order with a tracking number following shipment and you can trace your parcel online (not available with all courier services).

Please note that we have no control over the delivery of your parcel once our couriers pick up and we rely on their estimated delivery times. Email us and include your postcode if you require an approximate ETA on your item before purchasing. 

Please note we cannot refund the shipping charge where your item is delayed in the freight system and doesn't arrive by your required date, however we will gladly refund your purchase if you no longer need the item and want to return it. 

Delivery hours are normally 8.30 to 4.30 Mon - Fri. Please ensure your delivery address is correct in Paypal before processing payment if using that payment method. We will ship to the address listed as this is a requirement of seller and buyer protection.

Our couriers do not accept COD or handle cash so all payments must be made before shipping.

Important On-Forwarding Information for Regional/Rural Areas

While our couriers can deliver to most areas, some locations (eg. Regional WA, NT, TAS, VIC, NSW, QLD, SA remote townships and addresses outside town areas) are not covered by our courier services.  Some items are classified dangerous or flammable and cannot be shipped by normal couriers or the post. While our system may display a postage price in the listing we have no way of alerting you that delivery is not possible to your area prior to purchase. Please check our postcode/suburb listing at the following link to ensure our couriers can deliver to you - especially if you live in a remote or regional area. If your suburb appears in this list, our carrier will hand your order over to an on-forwarder, this will incur a charge which we can advise you of before you order. Please contact us for pricing before placing your order.
