Please understand that these suggested cut off dates are indicative only as parcel volumes leading up to Christmas cannot be predicted. We would therefore strongly suggest that in order to avoid disappointment you place your order/s earlier rather than later.
Our aim is to provide you with competitive and secure delivery.
All orders are shipped from our warehouse in South Australia via Fastway Couriers.
Please allow for a delivery time of around 5 working days or more, depending on your location.
Someone over the age of 18 must be present to sign for the order.
Unfortunately Fastway Couriers cannot leave the order unattended if there is no one home to sign for it.
To deliver your order, Fastway Couriers require a signature from someone over 18 years old at a physical street address.
This means Fastway Couriers cannot deliver your order to post office boxes. When nominating your preferred street address please include full address information e.g. business name, unit/level number & a contact phone number in case Fastway Couriers require further information.
If you miss your delivery Fastway Couriers will leave a Calling Card to advise you delivery has been attempted.
