Keeping Costs Down: An Update on Our Shipping Charges and Why Supporting Small Businesses Matters

In the ever-changing world of business, we often find ourselves adapting to various challenges and factors beyond our control. As a small, family-owned business, we pride ourselves on providing you with the best fishing gear at the most affordable prices. However, recent increases in Australia Post's rates have compelled us to make some tough decisions. In this blog post, we'll share important updates on our shipping charges and highlight the significance of supporting small businesses like ours.

Shipping Costs

At Bait Master Fishing and Tackle, we have always aimed to offer the best value for your money. However, due to the rising costs imposed by Australia Post, we've had to adjust our standard shipping charges. Starting immediately, our standard shipping cost will increase from $6.95 to $8.95. We understand that this might not be great news, but we want to assure you that we're doing everything we can to keep costs down.

We know that everyone is feeling the cost of living pressures in their day-to-day lives, and we are no exception. Rising business costs across the board have added to the financial pressures we face. Despite these challenges, we remain committed to keeping our prices as low as possible. As a small, family-owned business, we don't have the same buying and discounting power as larger stores. However, what we do have is a deep commitment to our customers and our community.

Small Business Matters

Choosing to support our family business over larger franchises makes a world of difference. When you shop with us, you become part of our extended family. Your purchases directly contribute to our ability to continue providing high-quality products and personalised service. Unlike bigger franchises, we value every single customer and take the time to understand your needs. Our focus is not driven by corporate profits but by the satisfaction of our customers and the well-being of our community.

By choosing to support us, you're not only supporting our family and our dreams but also the local community. Small businesses like ours play a vital role in keeping diversity alive in the marketplace. Your support ensures that we can continue to thrive and serve you with the utmost dedication. We want to thank you for your understanding and continued support. We know that the increased shipping charges may not be ideal, but we're doing our best to absorb a part of it to make it easier on you. Rest assured, all our parcels are tracked to ensure your orders reach you safely.

Tight lines and bent rods!
