Shipping Methods

We understand that quick delivery is of major importance; all orders are posted one business day (excl. public holidays and the Christmas/New Year period) after payment clears.

Orders will be posted with either Australia Post or FastWay. Australia Post is most commonly used for PO Box addresses, express delivery to states such as South Australia, Western Australia, and regional areas in other states. FastWay is currently our preferred shipping method as it is faster, cheaper for larger packages that exceed our 3kg cubic weight, and safer with the transportation of your goods. If you are purchasing large items for delivery that exceeds our 3kg cubic weight to areas such as Western Australia, South Australia, and regional areas, we aim to send your goods with FastWay to reduce any additional charges.

SugarTime takes every precaution to package the items securely to reduce the risk of damage or breakage, but will not take responsibility for packages lost or damaged in transit. Many items are fragile and postal insurance is recommended and available on request with Australia Post. FastWay has insurance built into the cost of your shipping. If you require extra cover/insurance, please email us at admin@sugartime.com.au.

Shipping Rates & Charges

Our products are shipped via Australia Post or FastWay. Postage costs will be charged at the published rates provided below on the credit card you provided when placing your order. By placing your order, you agree to pay the shipping costs. We make every effort to keep these costs to a minimum.

Customers are able to purchase our items online and select the pick-up in-store option from our store at Tuggerah. If you select both the pickup in-store and pay by phone options, you will need to call us to arrange payment before collecting your goods as stock will not be held until payment has been made.

We are open from 8:30am - 5pm from Monday to Friday and 9am - 1pm on Saturday.

Pick up in-store orders will NOT be processed if placed after 4pm on Friday if you require collection for Saturday. If you would like to collect your goods on a Saturday, please ensure you have placed your order before this time.
