John Batman Group is proud to offer our customers a fantastic flat delivery rate!
Within Australia, we charge a flat standard rate for delivery no matter the size of your order. If you buy one box or one hundred, you will be charged the same amount.
Our standard delivery Australia wide is only $9.95*
International deliveries (including Norfolk Island) are calculated and on charged at current rate.
We do sometimes need to add a surcharge for particularly bulky items including pillows, blankets, quilts, comforters, bedspreads, mattress toppers, cushions with inserts, ironing boards, televisions and some lighting. This is referred to as a bulky item freight surcharge of $52.00 on delivery of larger items like these. For some regional and island locations, we may need to pass on a delivery contractor surcharge. For more information on our remote area surcharge, please view here.
Please note that despite having an Australian postcode, deliveries to Norfolk Island are treated as international deliveries by courier companies so our International Delivery Policy applies for deliveries to this location (please see below).
If you would like to collect your parcel from our warehouse in Ringwood, Victoria the delivery fee will be waived. Please advise us when placing your order.
For deliveries outside of Australia (including Norfolk Island), we offer two methods:
Freight by John Batman Group:
We will charge you the best rate available for the most efficient delivery method to your local port. Payment of delivery charges will be required prior to despatch. We will need to pass on any additional charges that we incur in delivery of your parcel that were not included in the original fee. Any government and/or local charges applicable to your order will be your responsibility and payable directly by you to the relevant authority. You will be responsible for any delivery or transportation costs incurred from your local port to you. Please contact us for International deliveries.
Freight by Customer:
If you would like to arrange delivery through your own freight agent, we will deliver your parcel to your chosen agent (within Melbourne, Australia) and charge you our local delivery rate as listed above. You will be responsible for making all necessary arrangements to effect delivery and all delivery charges incurred will be payable directly by you to your chosen agent.
All parcels are sent via an economy service. Express delivery service can be arranged at an additional charge. Please contact our Customer Service Team if you require an express delivery service.

Once you have placed your order and payment has been processed, our estimated despatch times are:

If, after placing your order, it becomes apparent that there will be delays beyond our estimated delivery times, a Customer Service Representative will contact you.
If you are in a remote area or are affected by the wet season, we may not be able to deliver to your door. If you believe you maybe affected by this, please discuss delivery options with our Customer Service Representative.
