Australian Destinations

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

Engines should be purchased where possible from a DLE dealer in your country if you are outside of Australia.

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 number 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.

Generally orders are processed the same day if possible.

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.

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 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.

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.

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. During COVID19 delivery can be extended to 14 days for registered post within Australia.

We stock our goods locally in Australia ready to ship. The website will show if the item is in stock or not.

International shipping times depend on destination.

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.
