Compatible Cartridge Orders under $150 to the Northern Territory will attract a freight surcharge of $30.  We apologise for the inconvenience but must pass on this surcharge levied by the courier company.

Please note that a signature will be required for your parcel. This means you will need to sign for the items when it arrives. If you cannot be home to sign for the parcel you will have to collect it from your local post office if sent by Australia Post, or the respective courier will leave a calling card, all you need to do is call the courier and arrange a suitable delivery time. Please let us know if you do not wish for your items to be sent registered, this means the courier will leave it in your letterbox or at your front door, if you choose this option The Cartridge Shop is not responsible for any damage or loss during delivery.

Special Delivery Instructions - The Cartridge Shop will try our best to accomodate any special delivery instructions you require. However once it leaves us and is with the courier we can not guarantee that they will follow these instruction. Instructions specifing small delivery times are extremely hard to arrange, if you believe that you cannot be at home or at your office to receieve your parcel we can arrange to have a card left at your premisis and your package held at your local post officce or a calling card left from the courier. Feel free to contact us to discuss your specific delivery needs. Please do not use your work address if you do not have the owner/managers authority to do so.
