You will receive an SMS from SkyNet advising you of your parcel delivery and depending on where you are situated, your delivery times may vary. This is a door to door service and requires someone to sign for the parcel, if there is no one available to take collection, your order will be sent out again the following day. Please note that non-regional areas are restricted for delivery, so this may delay your delivery further.

Please note that during SALE times orders may take up to 10 working days.

Shipping Delays
We will always try our best to make sure that your parcel arrives within the stipulated delivery times or sooner, but there are some things that are beyond our control like weather, delivery errors, courier services & supplier delays. Regardless of the reason for the delay, we will always do our best to keep you informed about your parcels progress.
