Delivery FAQs

As our carriers and distributers are reporting driver and staff shortages, deliveries are currently taking a little longer. Due to these challenges, please allow an extra 2 – 4 days for your delivery.

Here are some of our customers' most frequently asked questions.

Ordered items are usually despatched within 3 to 5 days.

Most deliveries require someone to be present to accept and sign the delivery. This is to ensure the goods are delivered and received correctly.

If you can't be there to sign for delivery and your order qualifies, you may be able to provide special delivery instructions during the checkout process for our drivers to leave the item(s) with a neighbour or in some other safe place.

Otherwise you can specify a different delivery address and have your order delivered to your workplace, friend's house etc.

Age Restricted Products

You must be over the age of 18 to purchase age restricted products, such as craft knives, sharp scissors and paints containing solvents. When delivered, such products must be handed to someone over the age of 18. Age verification may be required at point of delivery.
