Am I able to collect my order, to avoid paying postage/freight costs?

Absolutely. Please refer to our office opening times to arrange a suitable time to collect.

Why do the products weigh so much?

In order for our system to work out a charge price for freight, it takes into account the dead weight and the cubic weight and will charge on whatever is highest, rounded to the nearest kg. The dead weight is the physical weight of the product and the cubic weight is the length x width x height.

For example if an export wine carton (which is quite large, but very light) is purchased, it measures 45 x 41 x 33cms. It’s dead weight is 1.3kgs however it’s cubic weight is 15.22 kgs, meaning the charge weight will be 16kgs.

Because we sell large volume light products and low volume heavy products, it means that the weight you see is not always the physical weight.

Do you have other stores around Adelaide?

We have just the one location, near Adelaide Airport. From here we operate from a warehouse and office space.
