Ordering & Payments
We prefer to receive payment by credit card or Internet transfer if you are within Australia.
Overseas customers payment by credit card only.
Orders may be paid by cheque; however, orders will be held for cheque clearance if not an established customer. There is a returned cheque charge of $35.00. If you have paid by cheque and you have overpaid, we will credit your account for the extra amount you have paid. If you have underpaid and there is a balance due on your invoice, we expect payment by return mail. We prefer credit cards as we can charge the correct amount.
This web site has a secure shopping cart. You can place your order online with complete confidence in the safety of your credit card information. If you’d rather not place your order through our web site, you can order by phone (please note our hours of operation, listed on our contact us page) or FAX (24 hours a day, 7 days a week).
We have no minimum order requirement. If you just need one small thing, that’s not a problem — there’s no need to order more than you want or need.
Shipping and Handling
We ship orders by Australia Post only. For overseas customers, you will receive an email detailing total costs including airmail postage, that you MUST reply to, approving these costs, before your order will be processed and posted.
The charge varies depending on the total weight of the order and on the dimensions of the products and whether you prefer standard parcel post or Express Post. Indicate on the order form if you wish the order to be sent Express Post. Orders are shipped Monday, Wednesday & Friday’s at 3pm, so need to be received at least 30 minutes prior to these times to make that day’s mailman. Most Tuesdays mail will be able to be posted, but not guaranteed.
My secure shopping cart does will automatically add postage charges. If you feel the postage is incorrect (which can happen with the software being used) then please contact us to confirm/enquire. We will certainly refund the difference between the shopping cart calculation & the actual postage costs when this happens.
Please remember that any rulers ordered require extra packaging to ensure they arrive safely. This may impact on the weight calculated.
