We are based at the tip of Africa in Cape Town. This means we are pretty far away from Europe, USA, Australia and Asia – pretty much everywhere. That does of course mean that shipping can be quite costly, especially on the bigger items.
The South African Post Office is the cheapest option available and they do offer tracking and insurance but it can take up to 5 weeks for something to arrive at most destinations (assuming there are no COVID related lockdowns at the departure or arrival points).
The best option is obviously via courier. I use DHL and Fedex to ship items from other countries to South Africa when I make purchases. That generally takes 4-7 days. If you want to order something and would like to use a courier I’ll get a quote and will subsidise some of the costs to keep it within reasonable $$$.
I wont ship anything without tracking info and you’ll be notified as soon as it leaves the premises.
