Australian Destinations

We ship using Australia Post E-Parcel for most orders, either by Express Post or Registered Post to Australian Destinations.

The webstore will give you options for either Express or registered post service. Express post delivery times are normally 1 ~ 3 days depending on your location.

Registered post can take 1 ~ 2 days for Perth delivery and 3 ~ 8 days for interstate deliveries.

PLEASE NOTE: delivery times during the COVID19 pandemic may cause delivery delays. Expect 3 - 5 days for Express post and 4 - 14 days for Standard Road Post within Australia.

The tracking # for your order is saved in your account order details in the web store. It is also emailed to you and can be checked online

There is always some fine tuning of the shipping calculations/options being done, so if the shipping costs look incorrect, contact us. Or if you just want an estimate or fixed cost for shipping, send us an email with what you want. We are happy to work out exact costs for you obligation free.

If shipping costs work out to be far less than the shopping cart calculates, we will refund you the difference after processing the order.

Orders over AU$200 Ship Free Australia Wide (standard/road post - 4 to 14 working days).

95% of orders are posted the same day, if payment is received before 2pm WST and the goods are in stock. During the COVID19 Pandemic orders will need to be in, with payment complete, before 1pm WST.

Orders requiring prop drilling, and international orders may have a 24 hour delay before shipping.

Stock levels on the website are accurate and updated daily. If for some reason an item is not available we will offer a refund or can ship back orders separate for no additional cost to Australian Destinations. 

We prefer to send all our post signature on delivery. If you select "Authority to leave" it in a safe place we will do so, but please be aware we cannot insure these items and cannot be held liable if your parcel is lost or stolen. We prefer to not leave in a safe place and do not recommend this form of delivery.

International Destinations.

We are happy to ship to international destinations, and provide various shipping options.

Australian GST (10% Tax) is included in the prices listed. GST is not charged to overseas customers - Create an account and login to see excluding tax prices if you are not in Australia.

We can ship regular airmail, Registered Airmail ( 5 - 30 day delivery), Express Post International (Basic Tracking 5~10 day delivery worldwide), Please note: due to COVID19 the delivery times will vary. Add 10 business days to the usual delivery time. As of 16 September 2020 International post will only be sent via Express Post until further notice.

For France/Italy/Greece/Asia/Spain we will only use express registered mail services as standard air mail services have been proving un-reliable. If additional costs are required we will request payment for this before shipping.

As we ship with Australia Post, there are some countries that AusPost will only send via Express Courier (ie insured/tracked/signed for) for eg, Nigeria. If your country falls into this category and you have selected Economy, further postage charges will required. We will contact you in this regard.

Shipping to New Zealand is quick and cheap, similar to shipping costs to Australia, and GST is not charged on goods.

Goods will not be shipped until payment has been received in full, and if payment is by cheque (Australia Only) goods will not ship until the cheque has cleared.

Please contact us for a shipping quote for your country.

The store will also give you a price on shipping to your country at checkout.

Sometimes international shipments will be delayed by 24~48 hours, as we have to post in person with identification at the local post office.

We are not responsible for customs charges/tax/duties that may be payable in your own country. If a shipment is returned because it was not collected or rejected by customs in your country we will refund the product costs (less any fees and postage costs) only when the goods are returned.

You will be liable for any shipping charges incurred due to non collection.

Delivery Times

Goods are shipped from Western Australia the same day of order, providing we have stock, and your payment has cleared before 2pm. You will generally receive engines within 2 days to most Western Australian Destinations, and 2 - 5 days to the rest of Australia. Registered post can sometimes take up to 8 days, but is uncommon to take this long. During COVID19 delivery can be extended to 14 days for registered post within Australia.

We do not drop ship from China to you.  We stock our goods locally in Australia ready to ship.

International shipping times depend on destination. UK / NZ are normally pretty quick whereas Spain/Brazil/Africa/Malaysia can take 28 or more days if standard post options are used. Please contact us for more info on shipping options for your country. We are happy to help where we can.

We will insist on using registered post services for Asia, Spain, Italy, Greece, France and Africa and some other places where we have found items to be delayed by many weeks or not delivered at all. If a registered postage service is not used, we cannot be held liable for non delivery, but will assist where we can to locate any missing items. It will be at our discretion to offer refund/replacement in these situations.
