Your details, such as address information, will be pre-filled from the stored information during future checkouts. Should you forget your password, we are able to easily assist you in setting a new password.

Shipping Information

We ship all orders via an economy road service within the borders of South Africa. We will also ship via any other service at your request, although additional costs will be for your account payable via EFT prior to shipping.

We are very much all about service and under promising & over delivering, we typically ship within 24 hours of the order having been place, we officially state 4-7 working days shipping to major centres in SA (Although, it is most often much quicker than than) within the borders of South Africa. Outlying/Rural areas, as defined by our courier, will take a day or two longer. A guide as to which areas are considered Rural/Outlying, can be found HERE. All orders are processed without delay as soon as payments have cleared.

Our goal is to showcase a range of International branded, quality product to our visitors providing them with the opportunity to view & have access to items that one would not usually find in a traditional brick & mortar store or often otherwise see. We are therefore able to showcase certain product which is only available via special order - those items are so identified on our website. We therefore don't hold stock of all items on our website as the financial investment would just be too much for us. We also ship directly from supplier to consumer.

YES! We want to provide our customer with the opportunity of being able to place an order for items that may currently not be available for immediate delivery, which we will order especially for them at reasonable lead times. With the financial investment you are about to make, our extensive experience in retail has shown that the consumer would rather wait a short while to make sure that they receive exactly the item they want instead of settling for the next best thing, as we commit to staying in touch every step of the way until the order is delivered to their door step.

As we trade online only & don't have a traditional brick and mortar store, we don't generally encourage an own collection option as we in most instances, ship direct from the supplier to the consumer, although an order may be collected from us by prior arrangement. Please get in touch to make arrangements prior to placing your order.
