When will my order be shipped?

  • Orders are dispatched weekdays Monday through Friday from our Pakenham store or warehouse. We aim to have all orders shipped within 24 hours of purchase however some delays may occur during peak seasons of the year (Christmas, Summer etc). Orders placed on weekends or public holidays will be dispatched the next business day.

Is everything shown on your site in stock?

  • Every item with an "Add To Cart" button is available in stock and ready to purchase. Items that are currently out of stock will display as "Out Of Stock". Once on the product page items will display as either "In Stock" or "Sold Out". You will also see a "Notify Me" button (see image below) displayed on the product page, by clicking on this button and entering your email address you will receive an email notification as soon as that product is back in stock.

  • In the event an item sells online that is out of stock we will contact you as soon as possible and either have the item express posted to us from our suppliers, and then onto you or you can choose to cancel the order and receive a complete refund. Our website updated daily 7 days a week in order to try and avoid these types of issues.
