How long must I wait?

Our orders can take 7-14 working days, but we do send most of our orders within 2-7 working days of receiving payment confirmation.
To make it easier for you to estimate how long items will take to be dispatched, we have added estimated dispatch times to all our products. You can find these on the product page above the description.
The dispatch lead times are based on working days only and is given as a guideline and cannot be guaranteed.
NB: If your order consists of products with a lead time please ensure you clearly understand this before placing your order. If you are unsure of this please feel free to email us or call us on 031-713-9579 BEFORE placing your order for an estimate processing time.



I need something quickly?

If you’ve seen a product on the site that you simply cannot live without but you’re worried that it won’t reach you in time, please call us on 031-713-9579 so that we can confirm stock availability. If stock is on hand or we know we can dispatch within your timeframe, we can then ensure that we meet your expectations and requirements.



What does Processing mean?

If your order status says Processing it means that we have received your payment and that we are waiting for your stock to arrive so we can pack your order.



Why is my order taking so long?

If an item you have ordered is not on hand, we will send you an email within 5 working days of receiving your payment confirmation to let you know when to expect it. You will find that many of our orders leave before the estimated dispatch time but we’d rather be upfront about how much time you may have to wait.



Half/Half Dispatch

If an item in your order falls within a longer dispatch lead time and you don’t want to wait for the available items, you can arrange a Half/Half dispatch at an additional cost of approximately R99. Call us on 031-713-9579 or email to arrange this.



How long does delivery take once my order leaves UCAN?

Depending on where you live, timeframes between dispatch and delivery are estimated as follows:
  • Cape Town MAIN: 2-4 working days
  • Joburg MAIN: 2-3 working days
  • Durban MAIN: 1-2 working days
  • Outlying: 2-5 working days
PLEASE NOTE: If you are needing an order urgently for a gift or for an urgent project, please don’t hesitate to contact us so we can work our magic and try to fast-track your order.



Can I collect from the warehouse?

Yes orders can be collected from our warehouse.



What does Completed mean?

If your order status says Completed it means that your package has been collected by the courier and is on its way to you.



Where is my order?

Once you have received the completed email as well as your tracking number has been sent out, feel free to track your order yourself. This will give you an indication of when to be home and expecting your order.
If your parcel has not arrived within the above times, go ahead and contact us so that we can follow up on your parcel status for you. At this time, we use two courier companies, namely Fastway and Big Foot. Please see the links below if you’d like to track your parcel.
