Shipping & Payment


All orders are processed within 1 to 2 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) after receiving your order confirmation.

If an item is out of stock, due to an inventory error or being sold in-store at the same time as your order is placed online, we will contact you to ask if you would like for new stock to come in before sending your order or partially refund the amount for the missing item.


We currently only courier items on a case-by-case basis. Contact us at for a quote.

This is because of the large number of products and the very diverse range of sizes and weights. Our product database may be updated over time to include shipping dimensions and weight for automatic calculation, but this is not currently possible.
