Shipping and Returns Policy

Shipping Policy

Shipping and Returns

Shipping

Packages are generally dispatched within 1 day after receipt of payment and are shipped via Overnight Express* or Economy Freight** - Door to Door, with tracking. Signatures are compulsory and the buyer must make themself available at the time of delivery.

If you prefer to send your own courier or shipping company, please contact us before we despatch your goods. In some instances, this may prove faster.

*Overnight refers to locations that are Metropolitan (Metro) areas e.g. Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein, etc...

On our Free Delivery options, we have the right to determine if the package will leave for Overnight Express or Economy Freight.

**Economy Freight is 2-7 Days – Usually, goods that are very heavy or bulky, but not limited too, e.g. Body Panels, Engine Parts, Cylinder Heads, Differentials, Gearbox’s, Engines, etc...

Regional areas are more than 50 Km's from a Metropolitan area and can take 1-2 Business Days

Remote areas are more than 100 Km's from Metropolitan areas and can take 3-7 Business Days

Our policy on Electronic Funds Transfers (EFT's) are very clear. The funds must reflect in our bank account before the goods can leave our premises for delivery. We bank with FNB and Nedbank. Transfers from other banks can take up to three business (working) days. Submitting a proof of payment is NOT proof that an EFT has been done. An immediate clearance will be a faster option if you require the part urgently. We will not tolerate any abuse to our staff regarding this policy. 

 

Shipping Delays

In certain rare instances, Overnight Deliveries are delayed due to unforeseen circumstances on the side of the shipping company. Unfortunately, we cannot be held responsible for that.

Outlying areas, especially Remote Areas do not have regular deliveries and Courier Companies usually dedicate certain days of the week for delivery. Please enquire about these delivery days before purchase. Courier companies also have a practice of "Third Party Handover". This means a shipping company will outsource a delivery to another shipping company, to a remote or rural area without either parties knowing. We have found that these practices often lead to a communication breakdown. We will not be held liable for the delays.

Bank delays or Public holidays will definitely delay shipping. Please take this into consideration when purchasing.
