Because we have negotiated extremely competitive rates with our couriers, unless it is a large heavy item such as a Cot or Glider chair, there is often no extra charge. As a guide, we have found that if there is an extra charge it usually works out to be around $1-$2 per kilo for interstate and Northern Queensland deliveries for example.
