Shipping outside our delivery area - Interstate and Regional

Dry Goods - Anything that doesn't require refrigeration will be easy to ship, for every order we will pack, measure and weigh the items and contact you 1st to approve the cost. We will never proceed without your approval.

Frozen & Chilled Products - These items require refrigerated transport which can be very expensive especially for small orders as the cost refrigerated freight companies usually charge based on a minimum pallet space even if it's just a carton.

Once we receive your order with the shipping address, we pack measure & weigh your order and calculate the shipping costs. Remember this is done prior to dispatch so you are not committed

After we have calculated your shipping costs we will send you a new order to pay for the shipping and then you can choose to proceed or you can tell us to cancel the order.
