Order Processing:

Our aim is to process & despatch the majority of orders received during business hours on the day of receipt. Orders received after 1400 hrs local time will usually be despatched the following business day.

Small orders will usually be send with Australia Post eParcel service & larger bulky items will usually be sent with TNT Couriers. In either case you will receive an email tracking advice from us as soon as your shipment has been sent. 

Typical delivery times will vary depending on destination and the order – see below for guidelines

All destinations: Where possible we will send out small lightweight orders such as timer switches via express post – these are generally delivered next day to Capital City CBD and in 1-3 business days to most other locations. Larger orders will be sent either via Australia post eParcel or TNT couriers.

NOTE: Above times are estimates only and may depend on the location of stock required to fulfill your order. We reserve the right to ship stock from either of our warehouses, so please check before ordering if you have a time sensitive order.

Orders placed online over the weekend or will be despatched Mondays (excluding public holidays) If you have a time sensitive order, or require a specific delivery time, please contact us as we offer express & overnight delivery to many locations for a small surcharge. Obviously express shipping is not usually practical for large bulky items such as wire mesh.

International Shipments:

We are happy to ship to New Zealand & offshore Australian destinations such as Norfolk Islands etc, however for any other destinations, please contact us prior to ordering to establish whether we can ship to your country and what the additional shipping costs will be. Note: If we ship internationally, our price excludes any import taxes and duty in your local country. You should find out what these additional costs are before making a purchase.

Tax Invoices and Declared Values:
All of our shipments include a tax invoice. We represent all of our products as merchandise and the declared value for each item will be the exact price that you paid for it. For international shipments we cannot lower the declared value or mark the package as anything but merchandise (this means NO gifts!!). We also note shipping charges on the tax invoice as required by the carrier.

Tracking Your Package:
You will receive a shipment confirmation e-mail the day that your order leaves our warehouse. This email will contain your tracking number (if available) along with a link to the tracking website for your package.

Customer Collection:

Customer collection from Sydney & Perth is acceptable but by prior arrangement only as this allows our team time to pack your order. You should select 'click & collect at checkout' or contact us following your purchase if you want to arrange to collect your items. If you have a need for your items by a specific time or date, please contact us prior to purchasing the item/s to confirm that you can collect by your required date/time.

Important Information:

All orders are insured door-door, they can be tracked online & usually need to be signed for. However if you are happy for your order to be left without signature, please ensure you make a note of this in the delivery instruction box & we will be happy to do this.

If you have any questions regarding shipping, please do not hesitate to contact us on 1800 302 511


Delivery Surcharges

Due to the weight of some of the products which we now sell, we have been forced to implement delivery surcharges on certain items to particular postcodes.

We have implemented these changes to ensure that we can keep the prices of our items as low as possible.  Unfortunately, due to the geography of Australia delivery costs can vary greatly.  Items are sent out of our depots in Perth or Sydney and whilst we want to maintain the simplicity of having a flat rate delivery charge with free shipping over $99 we have found that heavy and bulky items to rural areas have become infeasible within this model.

Rather than penalise all Trade Warehouse customers by increasing our prices to cover these shipping costs, we have decided to apply shipping charges on heavy/bulky items to particular postcodes where the shipping costs are high.

We hope that all Trade Warehouse customers can see that this is the only sensible option in dealing with these few heavy/bulky products and ensures we are able to keep our products at our usual low prices.

The table below roughly summarises the shipping surcharges, however you can simply add the items you wish to purchase to your cart and use the Delivery Cost Calulator in the Shopping Cart to get an exact cost. You can then decide if you wish to proceed with your purchase or not.

Surcharges are per item, but are capped on large orders. If you wish to order a large quantity of wire mesh, please contact us so that we can calculate the most competitive rate for you.
