FLAT RATE: This allows us to choose the best rate we can find using a range of third party carriers as well as freight consolidators. We offer flat rate shipping at a rate of R99.00 country wide. Larger items such as cylinders and compressors incur a small additional charge based on weight.

Major Centres can expect delivery in 2-3 working days.

What is a Main Centre?

A main centre is any Town or City in South Africa that is serviced via a daily flight schedule. In order for this to be possible the area must be within the delivery range of a recognised Airport. These Airport hubs are as follows: Johannesburg, Durban, East London, Port Elizabeth, George, Cape Town and Bloemfontein. Regional areas can expect deliveries from 3 to 4 days.

A regional area is any Town or City in South Africa that is not catered for via a daily flight schedule. In order for this to be possible the area must be within the delivery range of a recognised Airport. All regional areas will experience a delay in the delivery time, as most of these areas are not serviced daily.

Outlying areas can expect deliveries from 7 to 10 days.

Outlying areas such as Sodwana bay are typically only serviced by couriers once a week.

Why can I not send my parcel to a P.O. Box address?

The Courier Guy is an express courier service, therefore your parcel will be delivered to door, and will require a signature from the receiver.
