Unfortunately we do not have the means to display to you the weight of your order as you are adding to your basket.

During checkout, you will be given the option to include insurance. The carrier we use automatically offers insurance up to R1000.00 however if your package value exceeds this you will need to opt for additional cover or you will not be covered for the portion above R1000.00

If your order arrives and you discover an item is broken please contact meimmediately.

Kindly take a photo of the broken item and the packaging and email them to us so a claim can be started.

The refund is subject to us inspecting the goods first to confirm that they are in a brand new condition, and that all original packaging is in tact.

Please also take note of the following:

1. All returns will be at the cost of the buyer, unless the fault is ours. We can have the courier collect the item/s from you and you will be charged the appropriate fee up to but not exceeding your original delivery fee.

Reviewing and Voucher Rewards

After 14 days from when you placed your order, you will receive an email requesting that you review the products you purchased.

The purpose for writing a review is both to let me know what you think of the product and more importantly other customers would like to know.

If you have bought something from us, used it for a bit and have formed an opinion on the item then you are ready to write a review.

Roughly 50 words will be great and should cover the product fairly. Keep it short and to the point but mention why you like/did not like the item, whether you would recommend it or not etc.

Although I do not expect anyone to write an indepth study on the product I would prefer that it be little more informative to customers than simply, "Great product, good buy!"

In return for your time you will be sent a R25.00 voucher which you can use any time in the future towards a purchase.

Vouchers do not expire.

Yes, you can use your voucher against any items and for any value. However we do not give change and you cannot use multiple {review} vouchers for a single order, so please ensure the value of your order exceeds the value of the voucher or the remaining voucher value will fall away.

Please copy and paste the voucher code preferably as the voucher code must be exactly what is in the system or it will not be recognized.

During checkout you will see a box with the word "DISCOUNT" in it. Its in the area where your total is.

Simply copy paste the voucher code into this box and the discount will be applied and your total adjusted accordingly.

You cannot use multiple vouchers for the same order.
