When do I get my Order?

Delivery time is linked to the item(s) ordered. The item with the longest lead-time will determine the date of shipment.

We keep stock of many products, but not everything.  Fast-moving items may sometimes be out-of-stock when we are awaiting delivery from a supplier. For that reason we use shipping indicators to give an estimation of the time delivery takes.

Where no shipping indicator is shown in the product description, you can assume that the item will take a maximum of 21 Days to arrive to any destination in South Africa.

The following are examples of shipping indicators:

When delivery is printed in a red font the area of delivery for the item is limited. This normally applies to bulky or heavy items and hazardous chemicals.
