As most of our deliveries contain expensive items, the courier will only accept the signature of the account holder / purchaser and will request photo identification upon delivery. Accepted forms of ID are:

  • Australian Driver's License

  • Overseas Passport (in English)

If your delivery is via Toll courier, photo identification will not be required.

Change your delivery address

As soon as your purchase is complete and your delivery address is verified, we begin processing and packing your purchase. Unfortunately, this means we’re unable to amend the delivery address once your order has been submitted.

If you can’t be there when your order is delivered, don’t worry, a card will be left explaining how you can collect your package.
