Shipping & Returns


We’ll send you an email as soon as your product has been despatched from our warehouse.
We aim to ship within 5 days of receiving your order. In busy periods, such as the lead up to Christmas, shipping may take a little longer.

Drop-Shipping – Occasionally products will be shipped to you straight from our supplier.

Freight Services – Aramex (formerly Fastway), Toll & Toll Priority. Geelong Express, Couriers Please, TNT & Australia Post available upon request.


Where a tracking number is available, this will be provided to you so that you have as much visibility as possible
Metro – You should receive within 5 days.
Regional – Australia is a very big country and the exact shipping time will depend on your location. Aventum only uses highly professional freight companies to expedite prompt delivery. Unfortunately, in some extreme situation’s delivery can take up to 10 days from despatch to arrive.

Note that a number of the products sold on this website are considered “Dangerous Goods” (eg: adhesives & lubricants) and cannot be sent via air and therefore will need to be shipped via road freight.

If you have placed an order during a particularly busy period (eg: Christmas) or during a holiday period then this may delay the delivery.
