We endevour to do our utmost to ship all orders received before 12 noon on the same day (About 85% of our orders get shipped the same day and 11% get shipped the following day!). But this may not always be possible due too high order volumes, Although we do carry a large stock holding and buy stock in on a daily and weekly basis to replenish our stock. In the event that an item is out of stock for more than 2 days we will contact you to advise you of the delay.

Order Qualification does not mean that your selected shipping method will be used, EG if the order value = R1,350.00 or more, and MDS courier overnight to door delivery to Aliwal North is selected - We will use either Fastway or SAPO Speed Services as the delivery method. Dependent on location and best speed of delivery.

Incorrect delivery options selected eg: Selecting Own collection at our premises in Somerset West, (FREE), while you actually give the shipping address at another destination - will cause the shipping of your to be delayed.

Should we receive orders where "own collection" is used to avoid paying shipping - these orders will have to be delayed and the client contactedNB: No Refunds will be accepted - Should the client not pay for the correct shipping amount.
