Latest Shipping update - 4/12/23



  • Australia and New Zealand transit times are mostly performing well at their expected service levels. The transit times for most key delivery lanes in Australia and New Zealand have met their expected service levels in the past consecutive months despite some minor disruptions in select regions.
  • Increased volume during peak is causing delays. Some carriers are experiencing 1-2 delays in delivery lanes out of Sydney, Brisbane & Melbourne
  • WA rail network is partially closed due to recent bushfires. This is causing a backlog of freight and delays of more than 2 days into the Perth region.


  • International services are also providing timely delivery timeframes except for some minor disruptions in select countries. Most of our international partner carriers have improved their services over the last couple of months and show efficient transit times results. However, select regions in Canada are experiencing slight challenges in their air network and border clearance backlogs.

If your order is time-sensitive, order early or choose express delivery at checkout.

Standard Flat Rate for orders under 20kg (85% of our orders)

Here at Recycled Mats, we endeavour to keep shipping affordable for all our customers across Australia and charge a flat rate of $19.95 to Metro addresses EXCEPT Perth Metro, Country Victoria, and Country South Australia, set at $29.95 which ships through Shippit with one of our panel of couriers. If you prefer Australia Post please select AUSTRALIA POST STANDARD SHIPPING at the cart. 

The shipping to all other addresses deemed Regional or Remote (incl all of Tasmania and the NT) is calculated according to the 'cubic weight' of your order due to the high delivery fees levied by Australia Post and all other couriers to these areas.


Large orders over 20kg - (approx 15% of orders)

Due to the increase in fuel and handling costs, we have decided to implement freight charge changes to specific areas to reduce the number of people affected by the rise. ALL orders over 20kg in weight will be charged 50% of the ACTUAL cost to us by the courier. So we will cover 50% of freight costs, as a thank you!

We would love to continue with the flat rate charges (as we have done for 14 years), but as a small business, we're no longer able to cover these costs with the ongoing prices affecting us all.


International orders

For international orders, we cannot estimate customs or duty charges as each country has different requirements, and we aren't usually the ones that handle these costs to pay or to know. Please research before placing your order, as each country has additional requirements.

We are currently experiencing issues with processing international orders' addresses. If you encounter any problems, please email us at or call us at 1300 32 00 65.

Please note that the estimated delivery time for your order may range from 10 to 30 days. Please be aware that we have no control over the customs clearance process in your country, which may cause delays in delivery. As the buyer, you are responsible for any additional charges related to importing consumer goods, such as VAT, tariff, duty, taxes, handling fees, and customs clearance charges. We do not collect these charges in advance and are unable to provide an estimate of the potential costs. Please note that all prices displayed on our website are in Australian Dollars (AUD).


Your Address

It is your responsibility to ensure the delivery address that you supply Global Kids Oz / Recycled Mats is CORRECT and deliverable.

For PO BOX, Parcel Locker & Parcel Collect deliveries, please ensure the address is EXACTLY as issued by Australia Post (e.g. 'PO Box 200, .......' NOT 'post office box 200, .......'). All fields must be filled in correctly for the address to be validated and shipped exclusively by Australia Post. Read below section for more info.

We will not be held responsible in any way for an order being sent to the wrong address unless the fault is ours, and should that be the case, we will resend your order to the address that you supplied at our cost.

Suppose you have provided us with an INCORRECT or UNDELIVERABLE address (as deemed by the carrier) for your order, and it is returned to us for us to re-ship your items to you. In that case, you must supply us with an address that our choice of carrier (usually Auspost) will deliver. If return-to-sender fees have been incurred by the return of the order to us, you will be required to pay them, plus the cost of the return shipment and the re-shipment of items back to your newly nominated address. These return and re-shipment costs will be calculated on actual costs and be a minimum of $19.95 per parcel. 

We prefer you to use a work address to ensure that any order that requires a signature can be delivered to you without delay. If you do not collect your order within five days of Australia Post leaving you a card, they MAY send it back to us. For us to resend this to you incurs double freight, and therefore, a fee of $10 + actual return and re-shipping charges per parcel will be payable by you before your order is resent, with a minimum of $19.95 per parcel



We use several couriers alongside Australia Post that serve all of Australia. Australia post will likely deliver your items if you live regional or remote. Otherwise, it could come from Aramex, Toll, Couriers Please, TNT or one of their delivery partners.

For orders under 20kg Cubic or Dead weight; If you would prefer that your parcel is shipped through Austrialia Post please select AUSTRALIA POST STANDARD SHIPPING at the cart.
