  • Shipping Costs: Shipping charges for orders within South Africa are calculated and displayed at checkout.

  • Scheduling: Freight carriers will contact you to schedule delivery. Ensure your contact information is accurate. Additional storage charges may apply if they cannot reach you or you're unavailable.
  • Receiving: An adult (18+) must accept freight deliveries and may be required to assist with unloading. Inspect your order before signing the delivery. The driver should wait for your confirmation before leaving. Damaged or undamaged boxes don't guarantee the product's condition. Once signed, no claims can be filed with the carrier. If you find damage upon inspection, refuse the shipment, write "Refused due to damage" on the bill of lading, and notify Geartopia using the shipping damage claim form. Proper documentation is required for compensation or replacement.
