Stock Availability

Some of the products displayed on the site may not be in stock when you order them. We do not stock items which sell very irregularly, expensive medical equipment, refrigerators, furniture and other high value items. We have arrangements with our suppliers and manufacturers who will either deliver the product, within a few days to you directly from their warehouse or deliver it to us.

We will keep you informed about the progress of your order. Items which are in stock in our warehouse are typically delivered in a reasonable time.  In our experience, our delivery partners do a great job and we rarely have delivery problems.


Carriage charges apply to orders weighing up to 30KG packed in a rigid cardboard carton up to 18x18x18 inches, regardless of the monetary value. If an order consists of bulk items [paper products - couch rolls, toilet tissue, hand towels etc; bulk gloves' orders, pulp and plastic holloware, low cost surgical items and dressing packs, purified water etc]  which would increase the volumetric weight of the consignment the cost of the delivery will be surcharged by the courier. GP Supplies will charge the customer to cover the extras charged by the courier company. The customer will be informed about this extra cost before dispatching the order.
