It's no secret that gym equipment can be very heavy. In fact, some of our commercial pieces weight upwards of 300 kg! And with heavy items comes pricey shipping, particularly for residential deliveries and regional locations. Why is this the case?
Well heavy items need tailgate trucks for delivery, and they're simply more expensive to operate. In regional areas their are also far fewer trucks and this all adds to shipping costs.
We strive to bring our customers the most affordable shipping rates possible. That's why we've partnered with the BigPost network of freight depots throughout Australia!
By offering depot collection, this removes much of the need for tailgate last mile deliveries (depots just use their forklifts). So you can save big (often $100's cheaper) on shipping, if you're willing to collect from a nearby depot.
You can view the network of depots below, when placing your order, simply select the Ship To Nearest Depot option and we'll handle the rest.
When processing your order, our team will let you know which depot to collect from.
Depot shipping is only available for items weighing over 40kg as these ship on pallets.
If depot shipping is unavailable as an option at checkout, this is because it is significantly cheaper to ship direct to your door.
We offer free depot shipping to East Coast Metro and inner regional locations.
Due to courier freight prices, we are unable to offer free shipping to regional areas, Tasmania, NT, or WA. However our depot network provides an affordable alternative.

We strive to dispatch orders as quickly as possible, that's why we provide Next Day Dispatch on the majority of orders. Orders generally take 1-3 business days to clear from our warehouse, with 95% of orders dispatched within 1 business day. However some products require additional packing and handling prior to dispatch and therefore take longer to process. These can include heavy (+40 kg), bulky items (items shipping on pallets) and large orders as these require additional WHS protocols and additional handling prior to dispatch.
Shipping time frame will vary depending on your location and the items you have ordered, but a general range is 1-7 business days from dispatch. Capital city metro areas can generally expect shipping times between 2-5 business days. Inner regional metro areas can expect shipping times between 3-8 business days. Shipping to outer regional areas, WA, NT and Tas can expect shipping times between 7-12 business days.
All deliveries are to curbside only eg. garage or front door. Due to courier regulations and rules, delivery operators are not allowed to transport items beyond the front door.
If you require assistance in transporting your product into the house, upstairs or similar, please contact us prior to delivery and we will happily arrange a quote from our national network of third party specialist handymen. All handymen are vetted by us to ensure only the highest level of customer service and professionalism is provided.
Delivery of palletised orders to residential addresses in some regions may be subject to an additional service fee from our couriers for the provision of tail-gate trucks and associated extra labour. In these instances we recommend shipping to the nearest depot for collection.
