  • Urban Babies & Kids has partnered with courier companies, The Courier Guy (for outlying areas) and Fastway to offer you the best deliver service possible. We deliver door to door, all across South Africa.
  • Deliveries are sent to the address, not the person, so if the person is not available the order may be left with a person at that address e.g. security, staff, reception, etc. Delivery of goods shall be made to the customer at the place specified in the customer’s acceptance of order/ invoice or as agreed in writing between the parties.
  • Delivery to farms or rural areas will incur surcharges.
  • It is mandatory to leave a telephone or mobile number for the courier company to contact you during delivery hours.
