**Please note that shipping times to Melbourne and regional Victoria are currently being affected by Stage 4 restrictions. Most customers in VIC are experiencing shipping delays of 1-2 business days extra and some more than this. We apologise for the inconvenience to our Victorian customers. We are working with our freight partners to try to get customer orders delivered as quickly as we can in these areas given the current restrictions in place.**
Please also note that during busy holiday seasons (eg. Christmas), there can sometimes be short delays with couriers and Australia Post that are out of our control as they deal with a huge increase in delivery volumes at certain times of the year.
Jumbo Pets FLAT RATE shipping amounts are as follows:
Outside of these, the shipping cost you pay will be dependent on your location and the weight of your order. To work out your shipping cost you can simply enter your postcode into the box at the top of our website. Then as you add items to your cart, the shipping costs shown will change to reflect the weight of the items being added. Your final shipping cost will be displayed in your checkout page before you proceed to payment so that you know exactly how much your shipping will be.
Dispatch and time frames
Orders placed before 12pm on any normal weekday will be dispatched on the same day - so long as the item is in stock and ready to be dispatched.
If an order is placed after 12pm, your order will be dispatched from our warehouse early the following day - again, if the item is in stock and ready to be dispatched.
Below is a guideline for our regular delivery times after dispatch.
These are normal times (98% success rate). We allow 1 day to dispatch your order but there are rare unexpected delays that can occur which are out of our control and may delay your delivery. However, our promise to you is that we deliver on time or we credit back your delivery charge!
If you have received a parcel outside the estimated despatch and shipping times for your area please simply call or email us and we will investigate and add a credit (the cost of your original shipping) to your Jumbo Pets account for your next order.

Yes we deliver to Post Office boxes!
Couriers don't work over public holidays, so please be prepared for possible delays to delivery times these times. Delays should be expected especially around Christmas, and to a lesser extent Easter, as courier routes become congested. Our best advice would be to order early to minimise the risk of not getting an item delivered by your preferred time.
