Servicing & Repairs
SLH are experts at servicing Hobie kayaks and are capable of repairing or replacing almost anything. If you need any kind of service or repairs done to your kayak you came to the right place. We can service, replace or repair:
- MirageDrive Pedals
- Hobie kayak steering and rudder mechanisms
- Hatch gaskets, o-rings and seals
SLH often do kayak demos by appointment for customers who are serious about buying a new kayak from us. Demos are by appointment only and we only ever offer this service to customers we have had a chance to talk to. This is because we really like to get to the bottom of what you really need before taking the time and effort to do it. It is not uncommon for beginners to express interest in models that are highly unsuitable for their needs so in the interests of not wasting your or our time, we like to make sure we are demoing the right model/s before doing it. We also like to make sure that you are genuinely planning to purchase a new kayak - we don't have time to offer demos who are only planning to go off and buy a second hand kayak elsewhere. Contact us if you would like to inquire about doing an on-water kayak demo
Mail order & Shipping Info
SLH accepts mail orders via our website, email or phone inquiry.
Placing an order via phone is the simplest method to place an order if you are uncertain about which product you really want or need and require guidance. We can process credit card transactions on the spot and in most cases ship out your product via registered Australian Post the same day. When ordering via phone or email freight rates vary based on weight, size and delivery location.
Website shopping cart orders
The SLH online store uses the Paypal Payment Gateway powered shopping cart function that facilitates real-time payment via, MasterCard, Visa and Paypal account. Note: You do not need to have a registered Paypal account to use our shopping cart. Because we use Paypal's payment gateway, no credit card info is stored on the SLH site. It is safe and reliable for online transactions.
The vast majority of items orders via the SLH shopping cart online are sent via Australia Post using eParcel, with a flat-rate post and handling fee of $9.90 for orders under $250. Orders that amount to $250 or more are usually shipped free. *Note: some bulkier and heavier items that are too large for Australia Post are only available for delivery via courier. Due to the costs associated with freighting bulky and heavy packages we have added a relative surcharge to cover the courier shipping and handling costs and this is clearly indicated on the products it applies to.
In most instances orders will ship the same day providing the order is placed by midday in order to give us time to process and pack the order prior to our daily post pick up (which is generally around 1:00PM on business days). Australia Post have a shipping delivery time calculator that is a reasonable guide to go by
Info on Backordered items
SLH carries a large range of products and are usually well-stocked on core items but every now and then an advertised product will be out of stock. Products listed as "Out of Stock - This item can be backordered" are not in stock and are either currently on backorder with the supplier, or it is not a product we typically carry in stock. Delivery delays will occur with these items. Delivery time delays on backordered items will vary depending on the case; anywhere between one to five days if it is on backorder with the supplier, and anywhere between two to six weeks for other items, depending on whether or not the supplier currently has stock of the product.
If you have ordered other products that we do have in stock we will send those immediately and the backordered item/s will be sent as soon as we receive them. In the event that an item you have ordered is out of stock we'll contact you to let you know ASAP, do our best to provide an ETA and will offer to cancel the order and refund your payment immediately if you'd rather not wait.
SLH will accept returns for exchange or refund under Australian Consumer Laws. SLH will cover the postage cost of return in cases where the product is faulty or sent in error. Postage costs for returned products are covered by the customer in all other cases. More info on returns can be found in our Returns Policy page
PayPal Payments Info
PayPal delivers one of the most secure payment platforms in the world, which is why SLH use the service as an online payment platform. After more than a decade as a leader in online payments, PayPal have learned a thing or two about keeping your information safe. Whether you're buying, selling, or transferring money, you get an extra layer of security when you use PayPal. That's because all your financial information (like your bank account details and your credit card number) is securely stored and encrypted on PayPal's servers and no financial information is recorded or stored on the SLH server.
And in case you were wondering, you don't need a PayPal account to use your credit card on PayPal's payment Gateway.
