Please allow 10 business for shipping to metro areas and allow 20 business days for rural areas. There will be delays due to COVID-19. It is something we have had to accept as this is an issue many businesses are facing. Delivery due to COVID-19 delays may take up to 3-4 months.

If we have insufficient stock to complete your order, the products will be placed on backorder. The backorder timeframe will be indicated online and that these are approximate and any shipping delays could occur outside our control, however we will ensure customers are updated accordingly.
