Exemptions to Shipping Costs
There are however times when the actual courier fee is far more than the amount charged by our website. This is normally due to a surcharge by the courier company as they classify the area as an outlaying area. Extremely heavy or large dimension parcels may also cause a large discrepancy between the shipping amount charged by the website and the actual courier charge.
In these or similar cases, we reserve the right to place such an order on hold while notifying the client of the additional charges. The client may then cancel his/her order for a full refund, or make payment on the additional shipping charges, after which his/her order will then promptly be dispatched by us.
