    • Deliveries are based on rates from our courier company which are available from us at the time of the placement of your order. Please email us and we will send you a quote for delivery to your area.
    • Delivery is made using an outsourced courier company so we cannot give specific delivery times. Please provide an address where someone will be able to receive the books during standard working hours - Monday to Friday between 08h00 and 17h00.
    • Couriers are not able to make phone calls to customers to make special delivery arrangements. The onus is on the customer to ensure that someone is available to take delivery of your order at the specified address. ** It might be preferable to take delivery at your place of work.
    • Should the couriers not be able to make the delivery and need to return the books to Mindmatters, the customer will be charged for a second delivery.
    • Mindmatters does not do deliveries outside of South Africa. International customers will need to arrange for their own couriers to collect orders from our offices.
    • Orders are held back until all books are in stock and the full order can be dispatched. If you would like us to part deliver your order, you will be charged for the second delivery. 
    • Once your order has been processed, you will be notified of any out of stock or print on demand titles and their expected times of arrival. Should you wish to split the delivery, please notify us by email, and we will send you a quotation for the second delivery. This charge is payable before the books are dispatched.
