We have quoted postage (shipping) rates – for ordinary and expedited delivery – that will appear with your order. These are based on an the cost of sending an average-sized parcel weighing between 0.5 and 1 kilograms (for a single book), or between 1.5 and 2kg (for two books). The actual cost of postage varies according to the size & weight of the parcel and its destination, and the costs of international parcels are also subject to exchange rate fluctuations. Furthermore, postage charges change with an unnerving frequency, although we do endeavour to keep our quoted rates up to date.
All this means that we may have to ask you for additional postage if your order is for a book, or set of books, that is larger or heavier than average - but no amount in excess of our quoted rates will be charged without your approval. If your parcel is lighter than 0.5kg we will reduce the postage accordingly - at the moment we can send such parcels to any Australian address for AUD10.00. International rates will also be reduced as appropriate.
Unless otherwise stated, none of our quoted rates include extra services such as signature on delivery or insurance. Please enquire if you would like any extras and we will advise the cost.
parcels, we normally use either Australia Post's Economy Air service or Skippy
Post (an affiliate of Spring Global Mail), with a usual delivery time of
around 3 weeks. Sea Mail is cheaper - not always by much and it is very slow – but please enquire if you would like your book/s sent at
the cheapest rate available. The higher rate quoted is for Australia Post's Standard Air Mail
(usually 7 to 10 days, and with tracking). If you would like us to use a Courier service we
can quote the cost for your parcel on request.
