If you live locally or are planning to visit the Sunshine Coast, collecting your desired frangipanis yourself might be the best option but trying to fit a frangipani into a car without enough space will only dirty your car and risk breaking a branch.
For advice, how to transport frangipanis safely.
Interstate (and North QLD)
For interstate orders, the minimum transport fee is for a 1m x 1m square floor space (a pallet space) and up to around 2.5m tall. The only way to reduce this rate is to share the space and cost with another frangipani customer who lives near you and also wishes to share freight space and cost. Over the last 10 years, this has only happened in the middle of summer when two customers have coincidentally ordered at almost the same time and they had suitable orders and locations. Once or twice a year a customer enquires about this and waits several months and we successfully combine their order with another about 50% of the time.
A better way to improve value-for-money is by ordering more plants and filling the space for the minimum freight fee. If you can’t find suitable frangipani trees in this site, see sitemap > frangipaniplantscomau for more options.
Requesting one pallet space to be allocated to a frangipani order that extends beyond one metre in any direction will add an element of risk but will likely be worth keeping the delivery fee to the minimum.
South East Queensland
If we deliver ourselves within South East Queensland, height is usually restricted to around 1.5m for wind protection but branches can extend 1.2m x 2m without problem. We can transport taller trees ourselves but the frangipani leaves will get wind burn.
