Delivery

How do we deliver the best service?

We use trusted courier services and the most efficient companies in S.A who themselves have vast experience in delivering goods fast and on time throughout South Africa.

How long will your order take to arrive?

Due to the scale of products we retail we utilise a number of carriers dependent on the size and / or weight. It is very important to us that your product is delivered as professionally as possible. We always look to balance speed and quality of delivery to provide the best possible solution. If you have any specific requirements contact us to discuss before placing your order and we will do everything we can to accommodate.

The vast majority of our order will arrive within 4 working days but some orders could take up to 6 working days. Special or custom orders lead times will be detailed during the order process.

If you are ordering multiple items please note your order may be fulfilled by different carriers with product arriving at different times / days.

We aim to deliver as quickly as possible and often over achieve on stated delivery times.

Delivery times / days cannot be guaranteed and as deliveries are carried out by specialist third parties Gym Gear Suppliers (Pty) Ltd will not be held liable for any deliveries that fall outside this timescale. We’ll always let you know if there is an unusual delivery time or if items are out of stock. You’ll generally find that our website states if items are in stock or not. If your delivery is a made to order item, or for something we don’t stock and the delivery time is different from what is stated, we will keep you informed of when you’ll receive your order.
Please Note: delivery and delivery time is a best estimate and is not contractual. Our standard delivery days are Mon – Fri (8am – 6pm).

How much does delivery cost?

Free delivery is available throughout South Africa*

In all cases where we charge for delivery we are as fair as possible. We only charge you what we pay ourselves.

What happens when you receive your items?

If we deliver your item by courier then a signature will be required. We advise you to check the packaging for any obvious damage before signing for your order. If you see damage then indicate this on the note when you sign. Most of the time your order will arrive safe and sound but accidents can happen.

On occasions the outer packaging on heavier items can become damaged during transit. In most cases this will have no impact on the goods themselves and means that the packaging will have served its purpose in protecting your product.

If you are unhappy with how your item has arrived then please contact us at:  0861 017 461 or use the Contact Us page.

Our main aim is to make you happy when you buy from us so we’ll deal with any problems as promptly as possible.

Please also note that as we deliver heavy, bulky items our carriers will sometimes need your assistance when offloading. The driver will not be able / permitted to enter your premises so please ensure you have adequate support when the product arrives.

Please let us know if you will be unable to help the delivery driver when placing your order. We’ll make suitable arrangements if this is the case.

If you book an installed service everything is taken care for you with the product built in the room of choice.

Please call us for box dimensions if you have any access concerns.

Do you have restricted access?

We understand that some people live in places where access is restricted like flats, narrow roads or other areas where it may be hard to get a large package or a large lorry into.

Please let us know about this when entering your details when placing your order. There’s a box for you to fill in with any specific instructions relating to your order.
