Planet Nails make use of a nationwide courier service who deliver throughout South Africa (door to door service). The courier service does not deliver to a post office (P.O. Box). In general, orders over R800 are sent at no extra charge to you (we cover the R120 courier fee)*. For orders under R800, a charge of R120 is added to cover the courier fee.*
*However, remote towns or distant areas in South Africa may only be covered by an additional surcharge (e.g. outlying farms, areas with no street names, or other hard to reach places for the courier). Over the past 2 years, petrol and courier costs have increased drastically and we can’t carry these additional charges any longer. We will contact you if your area is one of these and give you the option to pay in for the excess delivery fee. Alternatively you can send your own courier to collect from us. The surcharge could be up to R2,500. In such extreme cases we will refund you. Even some towns on a main route .. like Beaufort West, are considered remote and a surcharge of R500 is applicable for this town. Towns like Springbok, Danielskuil, Lamberts Bay and Kakemas are over R600. Please email us if you are not sure about your area.
Once payment has been received and your order packed and invoiced, you will receive an email with your VAT invoice attached, also showing your waybill number and the courier contact details.
Expect delivery to outlying towns within 2-3 days (excluding weekends). For main cities (e.g Durban, JHB, Pretoria, Bloemfontein, ..) expect delivery within 1-2 days (excluding weekends). Please ensure that someone is available at the delivery address to receive your order.
The courier service collects from us at around 3pm daily (monday to friday). Goods are then despatched overnight by truck to main centres around the country. We do not offer same day deliveries. We need to have received your payment and packed your order before 3pm for it to go out on the same day with the courier.
