For orders between :
R0-R350 = R100 shipping
R351- R500 = R150 shipping
R501-R750 = R175 shipping
R751-R1500+ = R200 shipping
FROM ORDER TO DELIVERY
Just some info on how things work on our side, to keep you as informed as possible.
Your order will be shipped in the week that is announced on the top of the website, in the banner!
We run our business on a week to week basis, and this is how it works:
This is a prepping day, we prep all the plants. Wrap the soil, put them in plant sleeves etc. So that they are ready to be sent to their new homes!
We ship any Cape orders. (this includes Western, Eastern, and Northern Cape)
We try our best to ship all of the Cape orders on a Tuesday, but if we cannot then the last few will be shipped on a Wednesday, along with other provinces.
(This usually still allows enough time for the plants to reach the Cape before the weekend)
All other provinces apart from Western, Northern, and Eastern Cape.
This is a stock day. We restock our greenhouse with all the plants that need to get sent out in the week that follows. And so the process repeats itself.
WHY DO WE WORK THIS WAY?
Our shipping works this way to ensure that your plants are less likely to spend a weekend in the Courier depot.
MORE ABOUT OUR DELIVERY PROCESS
Once your order has been shipped, we will send you your waybill info in order for you to track it on the Courier Guy website.
It should take 2-3 days to reach you. And if you are in the Gauteng area it is very possible that it will be delivered on the same day as being shipped.
Due to our business still being small & new, there is a waiting period between placing an order and receiving it.
Our business is run this way to ensure that your plants are fresh and healthy. We do not like keeping stock with us for extended periods of time. So the stock we receive on Fridays gets shipped in the very next week. And the cycle repeats every week, but this also means that we do not have extra stock with us and can only ship the orders that we have planned to ship.
We do hope you understand this because your support for our small business means a lot to us & we want to keep our customers happy!
