Shipping and Returns

How are specimens posted and how much will it cost?

All specimens are shipped unset in individual paper envelopes. They are well packaged in strong shipping boxes with plenty of soft foam cushioning to protect them during transit. We ship across the globe via Australia Post. A variety of postage options are available. To view shipping costs to your area, add the desired items to your shopping cart and click 'view cart'. If the prices shown in the shopping cart show the dafult ,'Brisbane, Australia', you can click 'change' under 'destination' and enter your own country/region. Alternatively you can register for an account and add your address and the shopping cart will automatically display shipping rates to the address stored within your account. Shipping rates are also displayed at the checkout before you process your final order.

How long do orders take to reach me?

Orders are usually shipped within 2 working days using standard airmail. As a guide, mail from Australia to the U.S.A. usually takes between one and two weeks, all things going well. However, mail may take longer at busy times of the year such as Christmas, or delays in customs and quarantine. You will be emailed when your order has been shipped. Customers in Russia, please note that due to problems currently within the Russian postal service, parcels are taking up to at least three months to be delivered.

What if my order goes missing or is damaged during transit?

If your package does not arrive after two months it will be deemed lost and Insect Designs will reship your order at no cost to you. For customers in Russia, due to lengthy delivery times in your country, you will need to wait four months before we will reship your order. If your order is damaged during transit, the item/s will be replaced or you will receive a full refund for the damaged items (excludes antenna damage, or leg damage in the case of beetle specimens, due to postal shock). Evidence of damage must be given to Insect Designs prior to a replacment or refund being given. Such evidence could be a photograph or the return of the damaged specimens (Insect Designs will not be liable for postage costs asociated with the return of the specimens).

What if I don't like what I ordered?

If you do not like what you ordered you will receive a full refund (excluding all postage costs) upon the return of the goods to Insect Designs in the same condition as they were received.
