When will my order be shipped?
Items in stock are generally dispatched within 24-48 hours from receiving your order. To maximise the efficiency of delivery, some orders may be delivered in multiple shipments from our interstate warehouses. Dangerous goods can only be dispatched by road-freight courier.
Our shipping method within Australia is a standard shipping service which is a 2-3 day service to all capital and major cities. Outback and rural areas will often take an extra few days as these areas are not always serviced daily. Delivery time in subject to variation without notice depending on courier and postal delays. You will be contacted if extended delays are to occur for any reason.
The delivery times quoted are from the time of dispatch from our warehouse, not from the time your order is placed online with us.
If your item is in stock, the item will be shipped either the same day, or the next business day.
If your item is not in stock, this means we will have to order it in for you, which could mean a delay. Our sales staff will contact you to discuss.
Do you price match?

How do I apply for an account with John Barry?

Do you offer rentals on your products?
There is an item in your store but I can't add it to the shopping cart. Why?
If you see a product on our site that is for sale but you can't add it to the shopping cart, it is because the item has not yet reached our warehouse and is not yet in stock. If you would like to be notified of when a product is in stock, please let us know.

What is your ABN?
Our Australian Business Number (ABN) is 24 000 599 262.
Do you deliver outside of Australia?
Unfortunately we can only ship inside of Australia.
I can see the same product on another website and your price is more expensive. Can you tell me why?
There are a number of factors to consider when comparing our prices with those from overseas. Things like exchange rates, shipping costs, duty fees, warranty restrictions, voltage compatibility and the fact that many items are restricted from being shipped to Australia all together; means that oftentimes there will be a difference in the base item price. Simply put, most items have additional costs to bring in to Australia and when the above factors are taken into account the price we sell items for in Australia becomes a lot more reasonable. Having said that, feel free to let us know about what prices you have seen and we will always endeavor to do what we can in that regard.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept payments via credit card (VISA, Mastercard and American Express) as well as PayPal. If you are a business account user, you may purchase on account.
