Shipping

The BlueFly varios are shipped from Canberra, Australia. Normally they are shipped within 1 to 3 business days. Most of the time orders are packed at about 7am local time and dropped at the post office in the afternoon. If it will take longer than a week to ship your order then expect an email describing the reason. You will receive a completed order email notification when your order is shipped.

Please make sure your Shipping Address is 100% correct as it will be copied to the shipping label.

The default shipping option is Free Shipping and it is included in the price for all products (except for assembly services). If you want any of the other form of shipping please include it as part of the checkout process.

  • Free Shipping (cost $0 to any destination worldwide). This uses the Australia Post International Economy Air letter service. The vario is packed to be less than 20mm thick and can therefore be sent as a letter when using standard Airmail. I have shipped many varios via Airmail and is generally reliable to most destinations (please see the note below on which countries it is not reliable for). The Australia Post International Economy Air letter service is not tracked. Most of the time it takes three to eight weeks for international shipments or around a week for Australian shipments. I will send you a photo of the package on request.
  • Standard International Parcel (cost $30 for up to 500g). The Australia Post Standard International Parcel service is generally a little quicker than the International Economy Air used for free shipping, and to most destinations it is tracked end to end.
  • Express International Parcel (cost $55 for up to 500g). The Australia Post Express International Parcel service uses the global EMS system for delivery. It is tracked end to end and normally takes less than a week.
  • DHL. DHL shipping is not available through the online checkout as the prices vary widely. In most cases it is more expensive than Express International Parcel. If you want to use DHL please ask and I will provide you a quote.

Please use the Australia Post Postage Calculator to calculate shipping times for your destination. However, note that the fine print says that this estimate does not include any time taken in customs on departure or arrival. You will be responsible for any customs related matters in the destination country.

The Australia Post International Economy Air letter service used for Free Shipping is just normal mail. If addressed correctly then the package will eventually arrive. For a few countries I have noticed that this service has taken over two months, and in some cases much longer. If you want your vario shipped to the following countries please consider selecting something other than Free Shipping: Brazil, Columbia, Russia, Turkey, South Africa.
