FREE SHIPPING - We will ship any order over $80 for free by Australia Post Regular Mail or Air Mail.

REGULAR POST- Regular Post is the most economical option. Orders sent this way take 2-10 days to be delivered depending on the location and workload of Australia Post at the time. We will ship any order over $80 free by Regular Post, orders under $80 typically have a $5.00-$9.90 shipping charge added depending on the size and weight of the products.

EXPRESS POST - Express Post takes 1-2 days to most parts of Australia and 3-5 days to remote areas. It is the best option if you need your order quickly or by a deadline. Express Post typically costs $14.90 for low-weight orders.

SAFE DROP - Australia Post may leave parcels delivered within Australia in a safe place on your property if you are not home to receive the parcel. Please let us know if you don’t want this and we will request your parcel only be left with a signature.



International Shipping

CUSTOMS CHARGES - Customs charges and duties are your responsibility and may be charged by your country’s customs service before delivery is made. For more information about customs charges please contact the customs service in your country.

IMPORTING TIMBER - Importing small quantities of the processed timber we sell will not cause any problems with customs. You may be charged a quarantine fee depending on the policy of your local customs department but we find this almost never happens.
