How are our Bamboo Plants Transported?
We use a reputable Nursery Freighter or Fastway Couriers to deliver our plants to your door - as close as Byron Shire area or up to Cairns and down south to Melbourne & SA. Fastway Couriers will deliver boxed plant orders (200mm/250mm size pots) to your door. They go to the zones marked on Oz map.
Late week/weekend orders will be despatched Monday/Tuesdays. Our new system calculates your freight with Fastway Couriers by Suburb automatically. Just want one or two small plants ? We can send these in a half size box and thats cheaper - note standardised computer system allows normal box. When processing we will amend prices accordingly. Australia Post is used for non-Courier areas.
Larger size plants or bigger quantity is often more economical to send by Nursery Freighter. Average cost to Brisbane is $77-00, Coffs Harbour $88-00 and Sydney (dependent on suburb) $165-00 minimum. They generally spend a very short time of the truck and are always handled with care.
With this method your order will be fully packaged and have a tracking number and should arrive quick ! Most plants arrive in excellent condition - they actually enjoy the journey !!!
