You should expect your package within 2-10 business days depending on your location.

In the event that an ordered item is not available, or we are unable to fulfill your order we will notify you within 1-2 business days and arrange an agreeable alternative which is either a refund or credit for a backorder.

International Shipping

International orders may incur duties and taxes in your specific country which you are responsible for. Some of the international post options do not include tracking, so we ask you please consider this when choosing your shipping method.

Depending on the product, a different core deposit may apply to international customers. Once we receive your order, we will inform you if there is any additional charge. This is due to the extra processing through international customs and freight expenses.

Where Do We Ship?

Cairns Diesel Service delivers our products Australia wide and offer overseas shipping to both New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. If you are not within these regions and interested in purchasing our products, please contact us at admin@cairnsdiesel.com.au

How Much Is Shipping?

Freight charges are calculated based on the total weight and dimensions of the order. We have a shipping calculator built into your cart that will allow you to calculate the expense based on your weight, location, and courier.

How Long Will It Take?

TNT Services





Sendle partner with a dynamic delivery network based around Australia and will automatically match you with the best door-to-door delivery service based on the quality measures in their system. They use couriers such as FedEx, StarTrack and other private companies. They operate with a system called “Hub and Spoke” which they describe as parcels taking public transport, rather than each one driving in their own car. It’s much more cost-effective for those who aren’t needing their items express.  

  1.  Parcels are picked up by a driver (who is on their regular route)
  2. Then they are taken back to the depot (delivery hub)
  3. The parcels are sorted and loaded to travel between depots overnight (if intercity)
  4. Then they’re loaded for delivery in the local area during the drivers normal run
