The shipping cost of your order is estimated upon checkout. The fee is generally R150 within South Africa for orders that are under R5 000. For orders above R5 000, shipping is free within South Africa.
Shipping times are generally:
Shipping fees include handling and packing fees as well as postage costs and import duties into South Africa. Although shipping includes insurance, the package/s will be dispatched at your own risk. However, due to the nature of the items being purchased, special care is taken to protect fragile objects. Boxes are amply sized by either the manufacturer or by the staff of Pro Gear SA, and your items are well-protected.
The estimation is performed according to the weight of items (the larger of either physical or volumetric), where the item originates, and is calculated live to get the best rates possible. Shipping items are bundled together per supplier, where possible, in order to save on shipping costs. (We have negotiated discount rates with shipping companies).
We deliver orders anywhere in South Africa. Should you be outside of South Africa, we can still arrange delivery to you. Please contact us directly before placing your order, so we can confirm shopping costs.
Payment may be made via Visa, MasterCard, Debit and Credit cards, as well as Instant EFT (SID). All our payments are secure and handled by Paygate and FNB. We have negotiated a merchant account in order to keep these costs as low as possible. Another option is for you to handle your own bank EFT transfer, as this will carry an even lower processing fee. (Place an order, receive your invoice and pay it using the order number as a reference). Orders will only be processed once the funds are reflected in Pro Gear SA's account.
Pro Gear SA does not directly offer financing for any of the products available on our website. However, we know that professional gear can be expensive. That's why we've teamed up with South Africa's top finance providers, so you can get the gear you need today and get your production started.

We, boom swingers, all know that sometimes you need one or both your hands, for instance to check the script or to adjust your levels.
Also, in between takes, it's convenient to give your arms some rest. No need anymore to collapse your boom-pole all the way (especially in those crowded low ceiling places), because now, there is the Boomhanger!
Most audio harnesses' shoulder straps come with horizontal or vertical smaller straps. Easily attach the Boomhanger to these straps, rest your boom and relax!
The Boomhanger comes with a quick link for use with vertical straps and a piece of self adhesive felt which can be applied when desired.
Even if you're working as a boomoperator without a mixer or recorder around your neck, just grab any photocamera shoulder strap, attach the Boomhanger and enjoy your freedom.
