PURCHASING RELATED FAQs

WHY ARE YOUR PRICES SO LOW?

Quins have been doing this for a long time. We have long term relationships with overseas manufacturers. Due to the volume we sell and buying in bulk we are competitive without compromising on quality. Because you are dealing direct with the importer the prices are better.

WHAT COMPANY DO YOU USE TO DELIVER MY PARCEL?

Quins Sports and Nets use a range of carriers, utilising different services for different sizes parcels and different locations. Our staff determine the most appropriate service to suit your order. As a general rule, couriers are used throughout metropolitan areas and for larger orders, Australia Post is used for rural areas, and DHL is used for international orders.

Every order we send has item TRACKING, so you can track the progress of your delivery. If you have a specific courier requirement simply enter it in the special instructions section when you order.

HOW MUCH DOSE SHIPPING COST?

Because we are shipping parcels all over Australia we have great rates.

We will work out the best courier for your local area. Then we will negotiate a price with the courier and get back to you with a good quote.

HOW LONG WILL MY PARCEL TAKE TO GET TO ME?

Of course, this depends on what you’ve ordered and where you are.  Some of the products we sell, like our tennis post and cricket boxes, have to be physically manufactured before we can deliver them and obviously this takes time.  Other products are off-the-shelf and usually dispatch the next day.

Standard delivery times:

  • Sydney / Canberra / Melbourne / 2-3 days
  • Brisbane: 3-4 days
  • Country NSW / VIC / QLD: 3 -4 days
  • North QLD: 4-5 days
  • Adelaide: 2 days

Obviously, the delivery time can vary, especially in rural or remote areas…. So please us the above as a guide only.

PRODUCT RELATED FAQs

HOW DO I CUT PIECES OF NETTING?

We recommend using a hot knife to cut our nets to stop the knots from coming apart over time.

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS OK IN THE SUN AS SOME PRODUCTS JUST DO NOT LAST OUTSIDE?

All our products have high amounts of UV inhibitors placed in the product at the factory and are made for our extreme UV conditions.

DO I NEED TO BUY A . FULL BAIL OF NETTING OR CAN YOU CUT MY NETTING TO LENGTH?

We sell our netting in bulk or cut it to your specific requirements for a small cutting fee.

WILL THE NETTING FRAY IF I CUT THE NET?

No. It is a knitted fabric and uses a lock stitch construction.The knotted netting will hold in most cases. The cut edge will be raw but it will not unravel.

IS IT WATERPROOF?

No. It will dissipate a small amount of rain but not a significant amount.

WILL THE COLOR FADE?

The netting fabric is very colour fast however over the longer term some slight fading can occur when the fabric has been constantly exposed to environments of high UVR.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMERCIAL & DOMESTIC SHADE CLOTH?

Domestic shade cloth is made with a tape filler to increase its opacity. This tape filler is knitted into the fabric between the strands of monofilament. Think of monofilament as being like fishing line. When it is knitted together it forms a fabric, in this case, shade cloth.

The difference between domestic and commercial shade cloth is that commercial shade cloth is 100% monofilament (knitted fishing line). It has no tape filler. This makes commercial shade cloth very strong and suitable for use under tension. Domestic shade cloth is not suitable for high tension applications such as shade sails because the tape filler stretches at a different rate to the monofilament. Domestic (Universal) shade cloth is designed to be spread over a frame work, like a pergola, not tensioned out like a shade sail. Note, Ironstone Commercial 80% shade cloth is 306gsm whereas, Universal 90% shade cloth is 200gsm.
