Shipping costs

Please note that all shipping is calculated through either TNT Australia or Australia Post at checkout. Although we take all possible precautions to provide accurate shipping costs, additional charges may apply for regional orders and heavy items to a residential address.

Additional charges

Shipping costs for bulky items such as drum kits and concert percussion items are calculated by third-party freight companies.

In addition to your base delivery charge (H x W x L) and weight, your order arrives at a cubic weight that you are quoted for. We are also charged by the major road express companies for fees such as:

  • Heavy residential pick up delivery fee (RDI): $60.50
  • Residential delivery fee (RDS): $5.50
  • Fuel surcharge: Volumetric dependant
  • WA regional surcharge (LSR): Volumetric dependant.

These fees combined with the base charge total the final shipping quote. From time to time, these fees may be incurred after you have placed payment for your order. Additional shipping charges are out of our control and on a case-by-case basis. 

If you are unsure about charges or shipping methods, please contact us prior to placing your order. We are able to manually pack small items together in order to save costs and confirm your final invoice amount. 

Dispatch policy

We ship to all areas of Australia with TNT Road Express, Pack & Send, Star Track, and Australia Post. If your item is available in store, it will be dispatched from our facility in Hume, ACT.

Given we have close to ten thousand drum and percussion products in our inventory, we check stock with our Australian distributors every day. As such, your order may be partially or fully dispatched from one of our major brand distributors.

A major element of our sales philosophy includes care for the environment. This is why we often elect to use recycled boxes and parcels when we package goods for shipment.
