All deliveries are made via Registered Australia Post or TNT, with email tracking updates sent to the email address associated with the order. You will be required to sign for the delivery to confirm proof of receipt. If you are not there when the delivery is made, you may incur further charges from Australia Post or TNT (not from Bintel) to pickup the parcel from the nearest post office or depot. Local couriers may be used for some orders, particularly within Sydney where the Fast Courier option is specified by a customer at checkout. Bintel reserves the right to alter the selected method of shipping should we deem another option more favourable.

Please be aware that Fast Courier is currently not available outside of the Sydney Metro area, and further, will not be used if the items purchased incur free freight. Should you require express post for your order, and are located outside of Sydney, please ring our staff in-store to confirm additional charges.

Standard postage charges are determined per order depending on the category your products fall into. This will be specified once a postcode is entered at checkout, but as an approximate guide, please reference the following:

Envelope : $5                  (eg: thin booklet or chart)
Very Small : $10            (eg: filters, adapters, most eyepieces)
Small : $15                        (eg: small binoculars, large eyepieces, books)
Medium : $20                  (eg: large binoculars, spotting scopes)
Large : $25                        (eg: small refractor telescope, tripods)
Very Large : $50            (eg: medium reflector or dobsonian telescope, equatorial mounts)
Extra Large : $75           (eg: big telescope + mount package)

Many regional areas of Australia will incur higher charges than specified above, however if the shipping calculation does not seem correct, please contact us via phone or email so that we can fix the problem and raise the order for you with the correct shipping amount.

In the event of a particularly remote delivery destination or other factor which causes shipping to be underquoted, we will first contact you to confirm payment of the difference, or subsequently cancel the order if this additional cost is prohibitive. Currently The Binocular and Telescope Shop only delivers domestically within Australia, and to New Zealand.

We regularly ship to New Zealand, with typical orders of an in-stock item being delivered within 5 days for metro areas, or 7 days for regional areas. Prices displayed at checkout will be tax free if you are accessing this website from overseas, however please note that orders totaling over $400 will incur tax charges payable to New Zealand customs.

Please additionally contact us via phone or email before making a purchase so that we can advise of any extra shipping charges. Small items under 1kg will generally retain a similar shipping price to that quoted in checkout, whereas large telescope packages could increase in price substantially. ZWO Cameras and Swarovski Optik Binoculars ship anywhere in New Zealand for free. Call (+612 9518 7255) for further information.
