These prices are approximate and should be confirmed at the time of ordering.

A set is shipped in two net bags each approximately 75 x 75 x 75 cm weighing 28 kgs each. One bag can be fairly easily handled by two adults using the handles provided on the sides of the bags. Three adults can manage to carry both bags, with one adult in the middle.

A Mazda drifter bakkie 2 x 4 manages a set in the back with some space to spare and a 7 ft venter trailer manages a set comfortably.

Each piece is shipped in a plastic bag for protection and to keep them clean.

if you are curious, like one of our very astute lady customers.....

how can the net bags be 75 x 75 cm and have a king of height 84 cm ?....
