We process orders as fast as we can and use a courier service, who collect the next business day and provide updates to the status of your order. Please be mindful that we do not work 24 hours, orders placed later in the day/evening do not guarantee shipping the next day.
The courier companies cannot deliver to PO Boxes - please provide a home, business or place of work address. For the best chance at first delivery attempt success, provide any additional instructions: leave at front (or back) door, leave with reception, signature on delivery required, leave down side of house under skate ramp, etc. Expect delivery within 2-5 days from courier pickup (which you will receive via email notification). If you do not receive a shipping notification a week or more after ordering, please feel free to contact us.
If you placed a pre-order, the release date can be found on the product page. Please be patient as delays can happen at the pressing plant. We ship all pre-orders as soon as we receive the stock.
Why no shipping to Australian PO Boxes?
The courier service we use allows us to offer much cheaper shipping (and free for $125 orders) than would normally be the case - the only downside being NO DELIVERY to PO Boxes. They are working on being able to offer this service.
How much is postage?
It depends on where you live and total weight. One LP can be shipped anywhere within Australia for $9.50 if under 500 gram weight. General rule of thumb is the more you order, the less per item you pay. In fact, order $125 worth of goods and pay ZERO postage.
Is postage automatically calculated?
Yes, you can get a shipping estimate on the shopping cart page. Once you are ready to place your order, proceed to checkout and the price of postage will be displayed on the order confirmation page.
Can I order from overseas?
Sure. New Zealand customers can order via the website.
Please note, these are approximate shipping rates (in Australian Dollars) for one standard LP, under 500 grams:
UK / EU $22
3.3% PayPal fee is added to record and shipping.
Why are shipping rates so high for overseas orders?
We are just as bummed about it as you are but we do offer the option of building orders. The larger your order gets the less painful the overseas shipping rates. At checkout choose “FREE pick up” as your shipping option. Your records and invoice will be set aside, and we will continue to do this with future orders you make. When you are ready to have your package shipped send us an email and we will get back to you with a shipping total. Once the shipping payment is received your order will be sent out and an email sent, notifying you of the shipping. We will not and do not add any extra charges to shipping costs.

What's this about free shipping?
All orders that reach $125 ship free within Australia or can be picked up.
What if you've sold out of the items I've ordered?
We do our best to keep our online inventory accurate, but discrepancies may occur. We will notify you of items we are out of. In the very unlikely event of this being a large portion of your order, we will hold those items we have and await further instructions. If we're only missing one item, we'll ship what we have and provide a refund for the missing item.
