DELIVERY OPTIONS AND TIMES
We offer three methods of delivery at the moment:
Postal delivery: We use the SA Post Office to deliver to any valid South African postal address. We will send you a tracking number by email when we dispatch your order and you should receive a post office collection slip about 7-10 days later. You can then collect the delivery from your local post office counter. Postal delivery is R50 on all eligible orders.
Courier: This is a door-to-door service. You must supply us with your physical address and someone will need to be available at the address to receive the delivery. Deliveries are made during business hours from Monday to Friday. In main centres, this will reach you within 5-7 business days of dispatch. Main centres include properties within a 50km radius of the major cities in South Africa. If you are not in a main centre, it may take a few days longer. We do not deliver by courier to plots, farms, mines, military bases, major chain stores, power stations, game reserves and lodges, airports or harbours, and should your delivery address fall into one of these categories you will be liable for the extra costs incurred in delivering or returning the parcel. We offer delivery of parcels up to 10kg. Delivery on orders over 10kg is calculated based on mass, value, and number of items in the order.
