Update 16th January 2022

  • We have a slight delay on parcel processing due to slower than Normal Delivery from Suppliers we will be back on top of orders this week.
  • We have taken Express Delivery Off the website as Australia Post have Suspended the Next Day Delivery Service which impacts this service .
  • We are Shipping out of our New Melbourne Warhouse 99% of all orders currently as its the closest to our biggest suppliers to help us speed processing times.
  • Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infections, we are experiencing delivery delays across our Australia Post Delivery network. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
  • Like many businesses in Australia, several of the Australia Post depots have been impacted by positive COVID cases and the necessary isolation time required to ensure safe re-entry to the workplace.
  • This has had a flow-on effect to our customer Service Team in answering calls .
  • The regions most impacted are Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Geelong and Bendigo, with delays of 3-5 days for delivery into these regions.
  • Perth is also experiencing delays of up to 5 days as a result of unprecedented delivery demand and staffing shortages.
  • Delivery delays may be experienced
  • It’s our busiest time of year and delivery times may be longer than usual.
  • Next-business-day guarantee currently suspended by Australia Post

    As our business adapts to the challenges the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic presents, we are constantly looking at ways to optimise our delivery network to make sure customers will receive their parcel as quickly as possible.

    In some cases, we are having to process and deliver from an alternative location and customers may notice when tracking their parcel, that it is coming from a different location to what they are used to.
