How do we calculate your delivery fees?

Your delivery fee is calculated during checkout and is based on your postal code as well as the total weight of your order. The volumetric or dimensional weight is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the shipment to ascertain which is greater; the heavier weight is used to calculate the weight component of the delivery cost. The system uses these factors to determine how far your delivery address is from our warehouse and how many parcels your order needs to be packed in. The fee is then calculated accordingly.
